Boeing has been working hard to provide airline customers with streamlined, real-time access to maintenance information where line mechanics really need it – right at the airplane itself – and from their own mobile devices. Boeing Canada-AeroInfo is proud to have played an important role in the development of a suite of mobile maintenance tools that support time-critical tasks and improve maintenance turn times.
In December, 2013, Boeing announced that Norwegian Air Shuttle had signed an agreement to implement a mobile suite that includes Maintenance Turn Time, Toolbox Mobile Library and Toolbox Mobile Parts. Two months later, Flydubai also signed up for this suite of tools that supports integration with a back-end maintenance planning system, and provides direct mobile access to the information mechanics need to quickly resolve maintenance issues.
To be accessible from mobile devices, all that critical maintenance information first needs to be converted to a mobile-compatible format. A conversion tool developed by Boeing Canada-AeroInfo called Mobile-Reader Data Factory does that job. Working behind the scenes, Mobile-Reader Data Factory seamlessly processes and delivers all essential maintenance information so it may be viewed on a mechanic’s mobile reader via Toolbox Mobile Library. The Mobile Reader Data Factory reformats the “big seven” Boeing source documents, the AIPC, FIM, AMM, SRM, SDS, WDM, and SSM, as well as customized airline documents, airline revisions, and customer-specific documents.
As a part of Boeing’s Digital Aviation team, Boeing Canada-AeroInfo is committed to providing today’s airlines with the tools they need to succeed in a fast-paced and rapidly changing maintenance environment. Mobile Reader Data Factory is just one of many solutions developed here at Boeing Canada-AeroInfo that optimize maintenance operations for Boeing’s airline customers.
