Why is AIT so important for airlines and MROs?

Airlines are increasingly challenged to balance safety with maintenance operations costs. For example, they need to adhere to flight schedules while ensuring safe operations. Therefore, efficiency of maintenance operations is a critical factor in controlling costs and ensuring compliance with rigorous safety standards.

In the specific area of maintenance and repair processes, there is typically a significant amount of paper-based work and/or no commonly shared database. As a result, incomplete or missing maintenance paper trails are frequently a hindrance to efficient operations. Incomplete maintenance history not only makes maintenance more difficult but also presents airlines with a safety issue. The introduction of RFID-enabled aircraft components is a first step in reducing the reliance on paper-based processes and enabling automation in part maintenance.

How does the Fujitsu RFID and Sensor Solution help airlines and MROs?

By logging the maintenance history on RFID tags attached to aviation parts, and automatically transferring this data to maintenance systems, we ensure gap-free part maintenance history.

The Fujitsu solution helps reduce administrative and logistics costs by increasing data accuracy (eliminating errors), speeding up the collection and transmission of data, and making the entire data entry/collection process more efficient.
