How To Cope With Future Developments In Aircraft Line Maintenance Industry

 Aircraft line maintenance is the repair, inspection or modification of an Aircraft. Inspection of an aircraft is done by predetermined schedules. Line and base maintenance are the ways which help in inspection of the aircraft where base maintenance includes activities which require the aircraft to be taken out of service for longer periods whereas line maintenance activities are mostly carried out during normal turn around periods. Out sourcing of line maintenances services and technological advancement are the future trends for aircraft line maintenance market.

What are the main challenges faced by line maintenance departments today? How does Swiss deal with them?

 

Switzerland is considered to be a high-cost country. Since Line Maintenance is a very man-hour driven business, labor costs are equally high. As a consequence, the reduction in costs is our focus and optimizing our processes by introducing new technologies as well as improving the workflow with the help of the Kaizen methodology is our day to day business. In order to maximize the aircraft utilization, planned maintenance is carried out whenever and wherever the plane has ground time. Even though cost saving is imperative, we do not compromise on safety or reliability.

 

Newer aircraft will send even larger amounts of valuable data to airline maintenance departments. What opportunities do you see for your maintenance department?

 

An organization with the goal to have more resources on the monitoring and prediction of maintenance tasks which will assist us in minimizing unscheduled and unforeseen events. This will support us in guaranteeing on-time departures and will also support the trend for shorter transit times.

 

In what technologies have you invested in recent years to support your maintenance operations?

 

The key factor for process optimization is the introduction of new IT solutions. We are currently introducing electronic logbook (ELB) for the entire Swiss fleet which will reduce the paperwork massively. This is the first step in turning the Swiss Maintenance Department into a paperless maintenance organization. In order to optimize our real-time resource management, we are in the process of implementing INFORM’s Line Maintenance sol0075tion.
