What effect has this recapturing of the repair business by OEMs had on 3rd party maintenance organizations and how are they evolving to address these challenges? What levers do MROs have to gain access to repair technology and documentation? Are OEM total service solutions more beneficial to operators and what impact have they had on customer satisfaction and costs?

Aircraft Retirement Tsunami & Implications for MRO

A unique set of industry dynamics including high fuel costs, fleet demographics and new technology aircraft and engines are driving the retirement of aircraft at a much earlier stage than seen previously. Maintenance intensive aircraft are being replaced at a rapid rate creating a new environment in the parts market with increasing surplus stocks and leverage of used materials. What impact are escalating retirement volumes and growth in the parting out business having on the MRO supply chain? What effect is this situation having on asset value and lease rates?

Utilizing Big Data Analytics for Improving MRO Efficiency

Big data is more than a buzzword; it is undoubtedly the upcoming technological wave, going to revolutionize the entire aviation industry. Major retailing companies are already able to predict exact amounts of each product being bought during the next year by using this new method of predictive analysis. But what's in it for the MRO industry? Here we explore how big data can assist in predicting the maintenance needs of an aircraft, streamline the process of delivering MRO services and reduce cost-intensive AOG situations. Examining the opportunities and possible applications of big data in and outside the MRO industry.

Maximizing Aircraft Connectivity Innovations
Airlines are increasingly paying more attention to connectivity (within the flight deck, cabin and on the ground), it is a fast growing area that will change the overall travel experience for passengers and operators alike. With new e-enabled aircraft online and coming into service, it increases the need for operators to establish total connectivity strategies for all aircraft types, however information on the latest technologies and options is a constantly changing field of knowledge. In this session, we look at what connectivity options for software and services are available in the marketplace and what benefits they can bring both in the cabin, in terms of passenger experience, and in the hangar, with real time reporting and on-board maintenance information.

ENGINEERING SESSION

10:50 a.m.

Outsourcing Strategies

With airline cost pressures increasing, many operators are choosing to outsource capital and labor intensive maintenance to external providers. How can you ensure you have the correct procurement strategy in place so you contract the appropriate services at the right time from a suitable provider? Airline industry economics mean that in-house facilities are being seen as cost rather than profit centers, with this in mind how do you decide which services to outsource? What are the criteria or KPIs to measure the effectiveness of outsourced services? Analyzing how to implement an effective outsourcing strategy to reduce operating costs and maximize budgets.

§  Robert Grochowski, Maintenance Director, Eurolot

Safety Management Systems (SMS)

Operators and MROs need to take a pro-active approach when managing their quality, safety and risk systems to ensure they remain compliant with the numerous aviation regulations and standards worldwide. As this is currently a voluntary rather than mandatory program how can businesses ensure they develop and manage a robust SMS to increase safety oversight? What are the ‘must have’ elements of a SMS and how can you make sure it is continually updated to reflect and comply with regulatory revisions? What advice can regulators offer to industry to enhance levels of safety? This session will focus on best practices when developing SMS and how to ensure buy-in from all the relevant parties involved in the process.

Regional Aircraft MRO

The regional aircraft market is one of increasing competition with new entrants striving to make their mark and secure orders and customers. However, the recent European debt crisis, changing passenger demand and high fuel prices have made operating regional jets profitably and efficiently a much harder task. What opportunities and challenges are there for regional airlines and MRO providers in the region? What new programs are available and how will they be supported? What are the operator experiences to date? We will explore what is important to airlines from a maintenance perspective and how suppliers can respond to this.
