Since geography, environment, work environment, etc. combine these differences, airlines must have qualified staff that know the maintenance process, especially because they will do more than just technical, monitoring, and engineering tasks and their related paperwork. One of the key ways in which a CMMS or MRO system can be helpful is by correctly defining inputs and outputs in the process's information stream. Yet, the most important thing is

CMMS in the Aviation Industry

Thus, base on all of these factors, this is why the system should be evaluated by the systems department staff in the beginning of the evaluation process. This doesn't mean that others shouldn't be involved, but their most important task will be when their internal customer—the maintenance personnel—clearly defines the features of the system or systems that will be helpful.

How Bar Codes Can Optimize Data Recording and Information Analysis


Bar code technology allows users to analyze information to develop more accurate maintenance, personnel, and financial planning. In particular it can hasten the data recording processes in a maintenance system, as seen in its use in the aircraft maintenance process.

The system makes technicians log in and record the work cards they have been assigned, so they can start work almost immediately. This system can also be applied to non-routine jobs and engineering orders. Therefore, the system has a record of all the service-related data: the individual who will execute the work, the material that will be used, and the aircraft's number. Further, the system automatically records the time it Read More

Off-shoring: Are You Getting Your Money's Worth?

Adaptive Distribution Networks: Georgia State University and Michigan State University


Contemporary firms must recognize a fundamental shift in the management of distribution activities as a strategic driver of their competitive success. Instead of the traditional focus on pushing products to customers through distribution channels, there is a need to migrate toward adaptive distribution networks. Such networks focus on managing the flow orders from customers by providing them with high levels of convenience while preserving attention to responsiveness and total distribution costs.

The G-word: Do Businesses Touting Green Really Practice What They Preach?


The word “green” these days is everywhere—especially in business. However, it’s difficult to know whether the environmental concerns of these businesses are sincere. Are their so-called “green practices” truly focused on the protection of the environment, or are they a profit-driven marketing initiative?

This was first captured by Paul Shrivastava, professor of management at Bucknell University, with the metaphor of castration [1] .

Indeed, Galdwin mentions many examples of management theory that lack environmental concerns (of a non-human nature): strategic Read More

You Still Need ERP, Even If Naysayers Say You Don’t


After coming across the Forbes article The End Of ERP and quite a few spin-off articles about the imminent death of ERP, I became somewhat concerned about how this topic was being handled by "people in the know" and other IT experts. Here’s my take on it. ERP Exists for a Reason... ERP’s original raison d’être was to integrate core business functional areas and business processes

activities physics  and centralize various departmental activities that were otherwise disconnected. It's true that the logic initially instilled into ERP was too rigid for fast-changing conditions. For example, early ERP systems did not easily accommodate flexible pricing structures, or the ability to remap the organisation following a restructuring. Bottom line: software vendors were not delivering what businesses needed them to deliver. Today’s ERP vendors have made significant improvements to the core logic of their Read More
