Building and Executing Successful, Long Term Support Programs - Workshop Sponsored by Panasonic
Sponsored by:  
  • Session Number:  Workshop 3
  • Wednesday, February 08, 3:00 PM - 3:45 PM
In the lifecycle of commercial aircraft, long term and outcome based contracts can have huge benefits for the Operator by minimizing risk, reducing the support management burden and incentivizing the OEMs and MROs to improve operational efficiencies and reduce costs. As aircraft interiors become more sophisticated and expectations for the physical condition and serviceability of cabin equipment continue to rise, they are a natural candidate for this type of support. In this session, Panasonic will discuss how potential benefits to the Operator can be realized: a simplified role, fixed fees for a guaranteed outcome, improved reliability, best use of existing resources and economies of scale to reduce costs. Attend this critical discussion to evaluate the impact of organizational cultures, processes, geographical challenges and how to overcome barriers that impede the development of conceptual alignment into long-term and consistently executed realities.

From Part Fulfilment to Fleet Uptime: Changing the conversation in aircraft maintenance - Workshop Sponsored by PTC
Sponsored by:  
  • Session Number:  Workshop 4
  • Wednesday, February 08, 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Commercial aviation faces multiple pressures including volatile gas prices, demands for low airfares, a global multi-echelon supply chain and the need to keep the fleet flight-ready at all times. One of the key aircraft availability drivers is time spent in maintenance. By instituting a high-velocity maintenance program, airlines can streamline the MRO process to achieve maximum depot productivity. However, optimal maintenance can only be performed when a complete set of needs is satisfied, including parts availability. Optimization of inventory across a network of globally distributed supplier requires a truly holistic view of market, landscape and supply chain. Join PTC and the expert team of Embraer to learn how a system view of parts forecasting leads to maximum fleet availability.

Join this discussion and hear answers to your most pressing questions on challenges today and in the near future. How can regulations be harmonized to avoid multiplicity of audits by regulators and airline operators? How can the relationship between civil aviation authorities (CAA’s) and MRO’s be improved? What changes can be made to the audits that CAA’s conduct on MRO’s to make them more fluid? What is the status of implementation of ICAO SMS (Safety Management System) in the region? How is ME doing in comparison to ROW? How do the organisations do certification and what advice can the regulator give on developing strategies and working together as a region?
