Joint Embraer workshop

Commercial aviation faces pressures from several fronts, including volatile gas prices, demands for low airfares, a global multi-echelon supply chain, and the need to keep the fleet flight-ready at all times.

One of the key aircraft availability drivers is time spent in maintenance.

By instituting a high-velocity maintenance program, airlines can streamline the MRO process to achieve maximum depot productivity.

However, optimal maintenance can only be performed when a complete set of needs is satisfied, including part availability.

Optimization of inventory across a network of globally distributed supplier requires a truly holistic view of market, landscape, and supply chain.

Join PTC’s General H. Brent Baker and the expert team of Embraer for the one-hour interactive workshop to learn how a system view of parts forecasting leads to maximum fleet availability

Main discussion points:
  • Streamlining the MRO process: Advantages of a holistic view of high-velocity aircraft maintenance (HVM). Key benefits & implications:
    • Increased fleet availability and improved maintenance performance.
    • Inventory optimization tuned to fleet activity and routing.
    • Global asset visibility and planning.
  • Advanced Service Parts forecasting. Learn how to eliminate the most frequent source of work stoppages and missed targets.
  • Improving business outcomes with innovative service parts management (SPM) strategy. Find out how the new approach to SPM helped Embraer get a \$26M profit increase and \$50M+ in cost savings with no increase in staff headcount.
