Accurate tracking of parts and maintenance parts throughout the aerospace and defense supply chains enables compliance with regulatory requirements, improves safety, and provides protection against theft and counterfeit spares. But the nature of the aerospace supply chain creates a set of complexities that make traceability uniquely challenging.
Having the right labeling system in place— one that is secure, proven and reliable; that supports regulatory requirements such as ATA SPEC 2000; and that scales and adapts to evolving business practices — can be the difference between a successful labeling system that simplifies asset tracking and a complicated one that creates costs.
Deployed at suppliers, manufacturers, operators and defense departments across the globe, BarTender® is the secure and trusted labeling software that has become the global standard for aerospace and defense asset tracking.
BarTender’s Integration Builder provides seamless data integration with WMS and PLC systems like Oracle and SAP, enabling single source of truth data management crucial to efficient and reliable asset tracking.
The centralized control in BarTender’s Enterprise Automation and Automation editions connects your business data with a wide variety of printers and marking devices — whether you have one device at a single site or thousands at suppliers’ sites around the world. Even your suppliers can access your most current label formats and data with BarTender’s Print Portal, enabling label standardization throughout the supply chain.
Security features of the Enterprise Automation and Automation editions include complete audit trail capture, allowing you to respond quickly during a recall or event with pinpoint track and trace accuracy. Support for role-based permissions and label format encryption for robust protection across the supply chain.
