Workshop 3 – Composite Repair: Preparing for Demand - Seeking Best Practice
The rise in the utilization of composites in new aircraft programs has intensified the debate over what is needed to repair these aircraft and how maintenance organization should prepare for their arrival. Airlines and MROs are entering the thick of the maintenance reality which will require higher levels of composite and advanced material repair. Yet despite their increased use, no industry consensus has been developed regarding the optimum repair techniques, ideal repair materials or best practices for training. Composite materials present unique challenges to MROs and airlines that require detailed planning and an overhaul of current procedures. This session will look at how MROs and airlines can prepare for these new structures and how the industry can work together to start the process towards standardization of practices.

Key focus areas:

§  Tooling up for composite intensive aircraft – planning and investment challenges

§  Best practices in repair methods and techniques – bolted vs. bonded repairs

§  Repair material – making the right choice and ensuring availability

§  Searching for standardization in repair methods

Workshop 4 - Optimizing Logistics to Improve Supply Chain and Business Process Integration


Logistics management is the backbone of supply chain, as flow of components and parts are planned, controlled and implemented here. Streamlining logistics is critical to having cost-effective and efficient MRO operations; ensuring parts are available at the right time and place. Finely-tuned logistics systems greatly reduces inventories in warehouses and on shelves. Come hear best practices and creative ideas from key industry delegates on better managing your supply chain by redefining and re-analyzing your logistical processes. Explore and share challenges and opportunities with peers to improve reliability and availability.

C2 - Foreign Repair Stations - Rules and Certifications
It has taken an inordinate amount of time for the U.S. Transportation Security Administration to develop its new security rules for approval and inspections of non-American Repair Stations. The resulting moratorium on opening of new facilities and approvals has seriously hurt MROs in Asia and around the world. This session will discuss the new regulations and how they will work. What countries fit into what tiered scheme and who has approval and certification authority?

The MRO Dilemma – Outsourcing vs. In-House Capabilities
Economic pressures and a desire within airlines to focus on core services has meant that the trend to outsource maintenance activities has grown in recent years. However, how do you develop the correct outsourcing strategy to ensure you procure the appropriate services at the right time? Is developing in-house capabilities still a viable option and if so how best can this be executed? In this session we look at the options available to airlines and examine what factors should be taken into consideration when making outsourcing decisions.
