To develop the best insights for aircraft fleets or aircraft maintenance, it is critical to have insight into the full history of the hardware, and therefore the first product offering is the Configuration Data Exchange. In basic terms, this can be thought of as a data pipeline that will allow for 2-way configuration data flow between airline customers and MRO providers that will be agnostic to the various maintenance IT systems of record. The product will include a configuration data standard and data translation capability to move data from one system of record to another via the GE Digital Predix platform. We understand that transparency and data validation are critical, so the Configuration Data Exchange will also include Quality Assurance Interfaces to enable review of data and resolve discrepancies that may be identified through the validation process.
This Configuration Data Exchange will enable customers to gain efficiency in asset handoff between airlines and MROs as well as during lease returns by simplifying data transmission and storage. This product will also improve record accuracy by reducing manual data entry and will enable customers to achieve labor reduction for staff focused on configuration management.Configuration Data Exchange is the foundation that will enable customers to achieve intelligent insights around parts life management, SB compliance, Advanced M&D, Inventory planning, and maintenance optimization. For an MRO this means better customer integration, increased productivity and advanced service offerings. An airline can increase aircraft availability through improved handoff efficiency and reduced lease return fees. GE Aviation, powered by the Predix platform, is uniquely situated agnostically between customers and systems of record, driving the data connections that enable analytics - whether those exist in the market or if you have your own resources to build capability on your data. As an OEM, MRO and parts broker ourselves, we also understand the power of this connection, and the possibilities when you have accurate configuration data at your fingertips.
