Tego’s AIP solution provides edge to enterprise data visibility, security and control in aerospace manufacturing and maintenance applications
Waltham, Mass. – October 27, 2019 – Tego, Inc., announces that its Asset Intelligence PlatformTM (AIPTM) for asset management and supply chain visibility has been licensed and deployed by Collins Aerospace at their manufacturing sites worldwide. Tego’s unique AIP solution is implemented within the Collins Aerospace network with integration to their SAP system to enable RFID tagging of flyable parts in the manufacturing of commercial and military aviation products. In addition to ensuring compliance with the ATA Spec 2000 standard for automated identification and data capture – used widely in the aviation industry – the solution digitizes critical asset information for their next-generation platform. The platform provides a new level of digital data visibility, security and decision making throughout the enterprise.
The AIP solution is deployed by Collins Aerospace together with TegoViewTM, the industry’s leading software for RF scanners to manage flyable parts tagging. In this way, Collins Aerospace is able to continue using all of their legacy RF hardware while preparing to take advantage of the fully scalable AIP solution, which will allow newer models of RF hardware, such as those running with IOS & Android mobile devices. The AIP solution deployed by Collins Aerospace has multiple layers of security in the software at both the RF device and enterprise network levels, ensuring visibility as well as compliance of critical data where and when it is needed.
“Collins Aerospace has taken a visionary yet very pragmatic approach by selecting Tego’s solution to maintain continuity of operations with their existing systems while knowing it allows for future scaling and technology enhancements to be incorporated”, said Timothy Butler, Founder and CEO, Tego, Inc.
Deployment of Tego’s solution at Collins Aerospace is among the largest industrial implementations of the Asset Intelligence Platform, proving the system is readily integrated into backend systems like SAP and scalable to even the largest global enterprises.

Understand how OEMs and MRO organizations can realize significant operational savings with MROHistorian – the plug-and-play solution that enables capital-intensive industries to digitize their asset management processes. The business benefits of capturing digital data on assets, parts and components range from reducing labor cost and improved turnaround times, to increased equipment utilization, improved regulatory compliance and enhanced part authenticity and brand security.
Learn more about how MROHistorian can generate value for your business – view the brochure below.
MROHistorian is an “out-of-the-box” software solution that drives significant efficiencies in asset management and MRO processes in capital-intensive industries. It provides asset owners, operators and maintenance personnel with the ability to store and retrieve critical data and documents directly upon capital assets, eliminating paper-work and manual processes to retrieve records and historical information.
Operators can write and retrieve data directly and securely on parts, components, assemblies, tools, etc, using standard consumer mobile devices or commercial RF readers.
Imagine what it would be like to have digitized information such as manufacturing details, part specifications, authenticity certificates, and progressive maintenance activity directly at your fingertips as asset inspection and maintenance are performed?
New Application Improves Lifecycle Visibility, MRO Efficiency for Mobile and Stationary Capital Assets
WALTHAM, MA. and ATLANTA, GA — APTA EXPO 2017 — October 9, 2017 – Tego, Inc., the leading provider of smart asset solutions delivering meaningful operational intelligence from any asset, anywhere, today announced availability of MROHistorian. Designed with a commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) sensibility, MROHistorian provides maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) organizations, as well as asset owners/operators, with a localized data platform to augment their MRO operations and asset management processes.
The solution, built on the company’s award-winning Asset Intelligence Platform, enables maintenance personnel to store and retrieve critical data and documents directly upon capital assets by way of standard consumer mobile devices and commercial RF readers. With digitized information such as manufacturing details, part specifications, authenticity certificates, and progressive maintenance activity embedded onto assets themselves, technicians no longer have to guess or spend time hunting down handwritten part histories, sort for most recent test results, or locate an asset’s compliance status. Instead, information is digitized and stored, managed, and analyzed dynamically upon the asset, at the edge.
“At its heart, effective MRO is all about delivering the right information to the right place at the right time. If an asset that’s being maintained can actually dictate maintenance needs and instructions to employees, at the precise moment in time when maintenance needs to be carried out, the game simply changes,” said Timothy Butler, founder and CEO of Tego, Inc. “We make every asset smart enough to tell its story, whether it is a 30-year lifecycle story, a compliance story for a regulated product, or a maintenance story where immediate knowledge of current and historical context are paramount.”
When data is written directly onto capital assets and replaceable parts, owners, operators and maintenance contractors of equipment open themselves to benefits of sizable scope and breadth, including:
Reduce labor cost
Eliminate inefficiencies of paper-based processes
Significantly improve turnaround times
Reduce total lifecycle management costs
Optimize equipment utilization rates
Improve regulatory compliance
Enhance part authenticity and brand security
Tego MROHistorian represents a direct transference of the company’s heritage in the aerospace industry, where putting data on critical airplane parts and components has dramatically improved decision-making in the field, enhanced passenger safety, supported more accurate reporting, extended product lifecycles, and produced significant cost savings.
Tego will demonstrate the power of MROHistorian at APTA EXPO 2017, Booth 8105, co-located with TTA Systems.
