How Third-Party MROs Can Compete in the Age of Aviation Product Complexity
The Aviation Industry is booming as economies strengthen globally, resulting in increased passenger growth. This is causing large investments in new aircraft, and as fuel prices remain stable, legacy aircraft remain in operation to augment this increase in passenger traffic. All of this while the OEMs push to reduce a backlog of orders.
Extend Digital Thread to the Field
Manufacturers must continuously innovate next-generation products and offer the flexibility of capacity-as-a-service offerings. As a result, they need to transform how they develop products and plan to service them in the field. Connecting PLM to MRO provides a path to achieve both goals with a closed loop between product development and field data.Owner-Operators and 3rd party MRO providers want to improve how they maintain complex products in order to maximize uptime and profitability. As a result, they both want to gain control over product designs to optimize how they service and replace components. Adding PLM functionality enables them to bring product engineering to their maintenance best practices. Aras Impresa MRO brings together PLM and MRO on a single, modern platform that extends the Digital Thread to the field and provides the foundation for Digital Twin.
Planning & Scheduling
Structure and build maintenance actions for assets, record maintenance activities and determine future work packages to extend asset life and decrease downtime. Generate quotes and schedules based on service level agreements with Owner Operators.
Maintenance Engineering & Execution
Manage maintenance operational activities, such as inspection and disposition, including unplanned work. Capture and incorporate service requirements from regulatory directives, service bulletins, customer and other technical requirements from asset to component level.
Supply Chain Management
Manage procurement, materials, and inventory control enterprise wide. Track warranties, rotable equipment, exchanges and rentals. Incorporates Inspection and Consumable Bill of Materials for work packages. Create and follow purchase orders from inception to invoicing.
Reporting & Analytics
Provides day-to-day operating reports for production and support personnel. The system provides updates on production status, project based financial reporting, and real time shop capacity. Supports requests and approvals based on workflows on the shop floor or through mobile devices.
The Aras Impresa MRO application, formerly InfoTRAK MRO, is available as part of Aras enterprise subscription and is immediately available at no charge for current Aras subscribers. Aras plans to incorporate the Impresa MRO technology onto the Aras Platform.

As competition heats up from OEMs and Owner/Operators who want to take more share of maintenance dollars, third-party MRO providers are facing increased pressure to deliver effective, low cost maintenance services.
In this demo series you will see how easy it is to support maintenance activities from components to complete assets by using inspections, scheduling work, the right resources, work instructions, and enabling traceability for complex regulatory requirements.
The Impresa MRO application can support many different maintenance management requirements regardless of if you are an OEM, Owner/Operator, or 3rd Party Depot. In this webinar we will show how Aras Impresa MRO resolves these underlying issues by displaying the end clients usage of a specific component, its own maintenance history and its current configuration.
