In aviation, operation is the business priority; aircraft must be in airworthy condition for the business to produce revenues. Because of this, processes involving aircraft maintenance and administrative tasks to purchase and replenish spare parts are essential to ensure the service life of the fleet and reduce costs due to failures.
The support of a digital tool is essential if the objective is to manage, audit and control the maintenance work, comply with the requirements of manufacturers and authorities and maintain service levels, all this in an effective and efficient way.
Here are the aspects you should consider when choosing a platform for MRO management in your aeronautical company:
– Staff learning curve: ensure that the tool is intuitive and easy to learn for your team.
– Data migration: evaluate the migration process of your data and that it does not affect your operations.
– Scalability and configuration: verify that the platform adapts to your programs and maintenance tasks, as well as to your size and operational structure.
– Automatic task generation: check that work orders are generated automatically according to the maintenance program and established parameters.
– Data and multimedia: check the ability to attach text, images, audio and video files to help perform maintenance tasks.
– Visualization and analysis: you must be able to identify and view in real time completed, in-process and completed tasks, as well as make reports according to management requirements that allow decision making.
– Technical support: an experienced management team specialized in aeronautics is important.
– Training: consider the hours of support provided to advise your team and the waiting time for processing service tickets.
– Performance: it is essential that the tool works uninterruptedly, without problems and at the same time processes large amounts of data.
– Security: guarantees the security of your data, during transmission and on the server.
