Some of our larger projects include:
Maintenance Performance Toolbox
One of Boeing Vancouver’s longest-standing projects, Maintenance Performance Toolbox is part of Boeing’s Fleet Services set of offerings and is focused on providing Boeing clients with a tool to make airplane maintenance operations faster, more informed and more productive. By digitizing airplane maintenance manuals, automating parts acquisition and packaging maintenance activities for workers on the ground, Maintenance Performance Toolbox is designed to ensure regulatory compliance, reduce repair turnaround times, eliminate redundant tasks and maximize knowledge transfer and retention. Today, the software service supports 120 customers.
Digital Transformation Project
To enable tomorrow’s navigation products today and produce today’s products more efficiently tomorrow, Boeing must continue creating real customer value in the data-driven, dynamic navigation information environment of the future. DTP is a multi-faceted program intended to achieve this by developing both the products and processes necessary to increase navigation efficiency and lower operations cost.
The program aims to create an information management tool suite, the Enterprise Spatial Data Management (ESDM) system, for efficiently managing and leveraging navigation information collected by The Boeing Company to create better, more effective navigation products. The ESDM system will facilitate real-time delivery of the data that onboard flight management computers and Jeppesen’s FliteDeck Pro mobile product uses to render digital interactive charts that help pilots navigate their flights, from departure to in-flight waypoints to landing and even parking aircraft. By providing the right data at the right time, the results of DTP will enable this product and future products to help pilots avoid increasing complexity and data overload while navigating aircraft both on land and in the air.
Boeing has been working hard to provide airline customers with streamlined, real-time access to maintenance and navigation information where it is needed most – at the airplane itself – from mechanics’ and pilots’ own mobile devices. The team at Boeing Vancouver plays an integral role in the development of dynamic mobile tool suites that keep customers on the cutting edge of aviation technology both on and off the ground, offering improved airplane maintenance turnaround times and more streamlined in-flight navigation.
Airplane Health Management
One of Boeing’s most popular maintenance system offerings. It’s in active use by 58 airlines around the world and is currently on-board over 2,000 airplanes. AHM allows airlines to monitor airplane systems and parts while a plane is in flight, troubleshoot maintenance issues and prepare for quick, just-in-time maintenance to keep that plane on-schedule. It also helps predict future operations events and prevent unplanned maintenance and schedule interruptions.
Other solution-development areas include Boeing's GoldCare maintenance-management solution, Supply Chain Optimization (Supplier Quality’s SQIS), Data Processing and Conversion (Toolbox Factory), and many professional consulting tools used to help airlines operate more efficiently.
