On March 15, members of AIAG, a not-for-profit, member-supported organization that works collaboratively with a wide range of manufacturing companies, suppliers and service providers to help them operate at peak performance, will showcase automatic identification technologies which can be used to quickly identify, track and trace components within the supply chain, and in production vehicles.
