Realization offers Line Maintenance Management Solution for aviation organizations that has already proven itself with a major U.S. Airline. During the summer of 2011, that airline reduced flight cancellations by 62 percent, resulting in 1,650 fewer cancellations compared to the same period in 2010 and adding tens of millions of dollars to the airline’s bottom line. The first part of Realization’s solution includes increasing a metric called Time-Control Health, which is the average amount of time allotted to aircraft before being put out of service due to unfinished scheduled maintenance items. Realization strictly limits the number of planes receiving maintenance during any given day to reduce work in progress. And, it requires that teams have all parts necessary to complete each task before starting work, which allows maintenance teams to actually complete all work on planes with fewer than 15 days of “healthy” status. Instead of tracking each team’s completed maintenance tasks, airlines now track how many planes are “healthy,” meaning those planes that completely up to date on all scheduled maintenance tasks. The Line Maintenance Solution puts all excess parts inventory in a central warehouse and requires that all maintenance locations stock a minimum number of all parts used by the airline within the past year. For one major U.S. airline, the number of hours that aircraft were out of service due to parts shortages declined by 26.7 percent. The Line Maintenance Management Solution is now available for all aviation organizations. For more information, please visit http://www.realization.com/mro-turnarounds.html.
