Trends Influencing the Aerospace & Defense Industry

Watch David Ziegler, Vice President Aerospace & Defense Industry, and Morgan Zimmermann, CEO of NETVIBES, discuss the benefits of virtual twin experiences powered by data science in the Aerospace & Defense industry.

Overcome Maintenance Turbulence

The world's airlines will spend an estimated USD87 billion on aircraft maintenance in 2022. And yet, many airlines are still plagued by unplanned maintenance and low fleet availability due to disconnected MRO systems, with the average aircraft operating for only 10.5 hours a day.

As extensive data sets continue to be rapidly generated from multiple sources, it’s more apparent than ever: legacy aircraft maintenance systems are aging. The Aerospace and Defense industry as a whole must now optimize digital MRO to manage the impact of the data deluge to remain competitive. The maintenance ecosystem needs to be linked from end to end to bring disparate data and decision-makers together. As such, a fully integrated digital platform with a data-driven model is crucial to boost fleet availability, decrease MRO costs and optimize fleet safety and sustainability.

Fly Far With the Power of One

Discover the strategic digital platform that helps you navigate aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul challenges. It’s time to reap the benefits of next-generation MRO with the power of big data analytics.

Democratize Data for Decision-Making

Every new generation aircraft comes with terabytes of technical information covering every component, part and software required for it to operate at full capacity. The ability to consume, share and derive big data insights is invaluable to digital MRO.

The entire aircraft maintenance ecosystem must rethink, enhance and digitally transform maintenance tasks from end to end to deliver optimal MRO results. This can be achieved by democratizing data through:

Connect and Collaborate on One Platform

A single integrated platform adds value to digital MRO by connecting different systems and extracting big data from these multiple sources to provide meaningful insights. With access to this information, companies are better positioned to make the right decision and keep aircraft operating.
