  • Development of an RFID‐based Traceability System: Experiences and Lessons Learned from an Aircraft Engineering Company
    Production and Operations Management, 2009
    Co-Authors: Eric W.t. Ngai, T.c.e. Cheng, Kee-hung Lai, P. Y. F. Chai, Y. S. Choi, R. K. Y. Sin

    Abstract:

    This paper presents a case study of the research and development of an RFID-based traceability system in an Aircraft Engineering company in Hong Kong. We report the system design and implementation, and discuss our experiences and lessons learned. The aim of the RFID system is to effectively support the tracking and tracing of aeroplane repairable items in the company. The study reveals eight critical success factors for the successful implementation of RFID systems, namely, create strong internal and external motivation for improvement, stir up desire to keep abreast of the latest technology for global competitiveness, strive for cross organizational implementation, avoid major process changes/limit process changes, start with a small RFID project scope, facilitate equipment vendor’s investment, use cost-effectiveness reusable tags, and transfer RFID skills and knowledge from university to industry. We also summarize 13 lessons learned, including three lessons concerning RFID implementation at strategic level, six lessons at management level, and four lessons at operational level resulting from carrying out this project. Given the contextual details of the study, the lessons learned can help other firms to better anticipate the hurdles they will experience, and make them aware of the possible ways to cope with such difficulties before embarking on the journey of RFID implementation.

  • Selection of copper alloys for Aircraft Engineering
    Aircraft Engineering and Aerospace Technology, 1997
    Co-Authors: Keith C. Bendall

    Abstract:

    Copper alloys offer the properties needed for long‐term safe Aircraft operation. The design of an alloy to provide a closely targeted optimum property combination has become an increasingly sophisticated process. Suppliers of high performance alloys must fulfil the stringent quality assurance requirements of the aerospace industry, and have intimate knowledge of alloy metallurgy/microstructure and resulting properties. Describes alloys produced by Columbia Metals Ltd.

  • Copper alloys for critical Aircraft and aerospace components
    Aircraft Engineering and Aerospace Technology, 1995
    Co-Authors: Keith C. Bendall

    Abstract:

    Copper‐based alloys are widely used in Aircraft Engineering where critical components require materials of construction with high strength, good ductility and resistance to corrosion. These components are often safety‐critical and long‐term reliable operation is a paramount consideration. A number of copper alloys produced by Langley Alloys — Hidurax nickel aluminium bronze. Hidurel copper‐nickel‐silicon and Hiduron 130 and Marinel high‐strength cupronickels — are employed in the form of bar, forgings and stampings.

  • Metallic materials for Aircraft Engineering
    Aircraft Engineering and Aerospace Technology, 1995
    Co-Authors: Keith C. Bendall

    Abstract:

    Aircraft designers require materials which offer features and benefits that are specifically tailored to the aerospace industry. Much time, with huge expenditure, has been devoted since the Second World War by many special alloy producers to the development of alloys which provide high strength and corrosion resistance — often with low density — for Aircraft components.
