Boeing, Southwest Airlines to implement Airplane Health Management
Boeing released, that Southwest Airlines has selected Boeing Airplane Health Management (AHM) to enhance operational efficiency in its maintenance and engineering operations. Southwest Airlines will use Airplane Health Management to collect and evaluate airplane operations data while the airplane is in flight. This real-time data is used to signal ground operations crews of any potential maintenance issues before the airplane lands, minimizing flight schedule disruptions and maintenance-related delays. Boeing technical teams will work with Southwest to facilitate initial deployment of the system for its Next-Generation 737s.
