Softwares in Aviation Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul

2 min read

In earlier days, the inspection and MRO processes of an aircraft were one of the most-crucial and complex ones for keeping the aircraft safe and secure. Any small misalignment between parts, if not rectified, may lead to the breakdown of the whole aircraft. While a vehicle on land can be stopped then and there, in case of breakdown of any component, the malfunction of any small component in an aircraft may sometimes lead to the entire plane crash. Due to this reason, aircraft MRO facilities spend a lot of time in inspection and maintenance stages to ensure the utmost safety of the passengers. To enhance the accuracy of inspection and reduce the amount of time consumed by the inspection process, sophisticated software are introduced for the maintenance, repair, and overhauling of the aircraft. In order to guarantee the safety of the aircraft, these software are incorporated with features, like predictive maintenance, effective collaboration between various elements of the aircraft system, supply chain optimisation, automated maintenance planning, utilisation of the technology, etc. These features vary with the type of aircraft and most probably, some features may add on to the existing features to assure a smooth and safe flight.

In order to meet the expectations of the industry, a lot of software are being developed by different companies. Gradually, it became a challenge for the companies, to develop user-friendly software, meeting all the industrial requirements at a low cost. This is due to the fact that the process of maintenance, repair, and overhauling includes complexity, with utmost importance being given to the safety of the aircraft.  Software, like iFlight MRO, developed by IBS software and FlyPal, not only provide the customers with MRO facilities, but also some additional features to collaborate more easily with other systems in aircraft maintenance. Some companies also develop tailor-made software to satisfy the special requirements of their customers. The iFlight MRO software includes features, like multiple dashboards, technical documentation, information management, employee database, and financial management, along with maintenance, repair, and overhauling services. This software includes domains, like engineering, capabilities, planning and forecast, schedule maintenance, base maintenance, line maintenance, logistics, reporting, and connectivity, where options are provided to customize priorities. FlyPal is another software that is cost-effective, time-proven, and user-friendly, with the recognition of the civil aviation authorities, globally. It guides in aircraft spare parts management, reliability monitoring, and maintenance data tracking. It collaborates between different sectors of an industry, such as engineering and planning control, maintenance control, production control, human resources, quality assurance, and inventory and logistics control. The MRO solution plans, such as Dynamic AX, can be integrated with the manufacturing technology, such as 3D printing, to cut down manufacturing cost, reduce the scrap, thereby, aiding the increase in productivity.  It is interesting to know that there are software, like Visual MRO, which provide the overall view of the plant and also enable the user to fly to the desired department or location to check for the requirement of maintenance. It highlights the part to be repaired and also guides the user with step-by-step procedures to be followed to repair that particular part.

Thus, it is obvious that MRO software like these make the process easy and also help companies to carry them out, smoothly and in quick time. With the pace of the improvements taking place in the aviation industry, there is a lot of scope for the growth of the MRO software market in the future, especially in the aviation industry.
