THE CHALLENGE

How to Achieve Optimal Maintenance Performance

Modern airlines and MRO businesses understand that the ability to manage time-dependent, mission-critical content and information has a significant impact on turn times, labor productivity, and hangar asset utilization. But today’s environment presents a host of challenges:

  • The ability to support information exchange standards for both existing and new-generation fleets
  • Demands by OEMs to use multiple proprietary systems
  • Reliance on legacy ERP and MRO systems that no longer support industry information management standards
  • Inaccurate and inconsistent information resulting from the increasing complexities of multiple authoring and content management systems, various document types and formats, and numerous delivery mechanisms

THE SOLUTION

Improve Productivity by Putting Content in the Hands of Engineers at the Point of Maintenance

With industry-leading features and a track deployment record at some of the world’s largest operators, Flatirons MRO Edition is the obvious choice for MRO repair stations looking to make content a differentiator, not a cost.

Engineering projects

Automatically assemble required job cards based on visit requirements.

Batch print maintenance visits to system printers using the included print management server.

Build, assemble, and launch the execution of printed or electronic work packages.

Electronically sign-off and track work card completion.

Coordinated access panel open/close.
