Boeing Launches Digital Maintenance Tool
The digital records management capability will optimize maintenance operations and reduce airlines' costs because they no longer will face the challenge of managing cumbersome, paper-based maintenance records.
Boeing on Oct. 13 introduced a digital records management capability to its Maintenance Performance Toolbox product suite, saying the tool will optimize maintenance operations and reduce airlines' costs because they no longer will face the challenge of managing cumbersome, paper-based maintenance records. The tool works with other application solutions to increase efficiencies for day-to-day airline maintenance operations and the management of leased airplanes, according to Boeing.
"Automation of the maintenance recordkeeping process is a new and essential component of our Maintenance Performance Toolbox, and we are pleased to provide airlines with the foundation for establishing more efficient maintenance operations," said Per Norén, vice president, Digital Solutions for Boeing Digital Aviation, which is a business unit of Commercial Aviation Services. "Our new records solution lowers costs related to daily records and the end-of-lease management, as well as eliminating redundant processes and reducing delays in aircraft maintenance processes. This new system truly allows airlines to unlock the potential of fleet-wide digital records management."
More than 160 customers currently use the Maintenance Performance Toolbox suite.
