Mxi Technologies, the leader in aviation maintenance management software, today announced the latest release of its industry-leading Maintenix v8 solution, designed specifically to support high yield maintenance activities that can transform an aviation organization’s MRO function into a profitable business.
Anchored on Mxi’s exclusive Avinomic Predictive Control System™ (PCS), the latest offering in the Maintenix v8 stream offers enhanced functionality that can help organizations glean greater information insights from their MRO data and become more agile in the face of ever-changing aviation maintenance demands, including:
- Advanced Search for quicker pinpointing and processing of critical data: With built-in ‘Google-like’ advanced search capabilities that index Maintenix structured content, users can rapidly find content across traditional subject areas using multiple search operators and field identifiers – including fuzzy searches, wildcard characters, and date ranges – enabling comprehensive, lightning-quick data extractions, complete with hyperlinks to detailed, user-filtered record information, for more efficient planning and decision-making
- A Timeline feature to more easily visualize ‘single window’ asset lifecycle data: Maintenix has traditionally been recognized for its impeccable data management capabilities, especially around configuration management and maintenance recording. Comprehensive, aggregated views of each asset’s timeline of historical and projected lifecycle events – including faults, shipment, flight, ownership change, authority change, work package, quarantine action and reliability notes etc. – is now available, complete with one-click drill-down to full activity details, helping facilitate continuous improvement efforts that ultimately lead to improved asset availability
- Business Intelligence taken to a whole new level: More powerful and user-friendly business intelligence (BI) functionality – including greater self-service, ad hoc reporting; more flexible and interactive dashboards; comprehensive analysis using stronger OLAP queries; and easy-to-use pivoting, filtering, and data drill-down capabilities – empower users to spot operational bottlenecks and explore ways to improve operations, manage risk and achieve stronger performance outcomes
- System extensibility to leverage existing IT investments: An improved standards-based integration framework for greater system extensibility to third-party systems, enabling a scalable, seamless maintenance information network that features faster response to changes in data schemas and document standards, and significantly enhanced support for other communications protocols, customizations, extensions and technical standards (e.g. WSDL 1.1, WS-*)
Every day, aviation organizations generate overwhelming volumes of fleet, maintenance and supply chain data – gigabytes worth of asset information that can be harvested to optimize performance. However, the challenge lies in deciphering all of this information into meaningful business decisions, particularly if the data cannot be readily accessed, aggregated and analyzed.
“Aviation organizations that can mine the valuable information insights stored within their data are ultimately better positioned to deliver on the promise of more standard, lean and predictable MRO practices,” says Jeff Cass, Chief Technology Officer, Mxi Technologies. “With Maintenix v8, our customers benefit from an IT system that gives them the visibility they need to understand the current state of their business, the agility to make the necessary changes to improve performance, and the accountability to ensure things get done according to plan and industry regulations.”
The latest version continues to elevate MRO IT to the role of a business platform by supporting high-yield maintenance activities to maximize efficiency and return-on-investment.
