With recent approval from EASA, TP Aerospace becomes a frontrunner in MRO digitalization as they ditch paperwork and implement paperless processes throughout their inhouse MRO shops. The new system enables digital sign-off of work orders, digital tasks lists, as well as increased efficiency through time optimization and reduced risk of human errors. Finally, it brings improvements to quality controls and safety protocols.
The initial phase of the paperless project began in 2018 along with the launch of the Green Sunrise strategy – an ambitious growth plan for increasing proximity to airline customers worldwide and provide the best possible wheel and brake support, wherever in the world their aircraft may be. A result of the Green Sunrise is a continuously increasing network of in-house MRO facilities, and thus, it has become vital to develop a stronger data foundation to sustain the growth and ensure that all MRO facilities within the TP Aerospace network continues to meet and exceed the highest standards in the market.
TP Aerospace has managed to use their current ERP system, developed by Component Control, to customize the Paperless System for the company’s specific needs and MRO workshops, making all processes involved in raising, completing and signing off a work order electronic. The new system can process work orders from the introduction of a unit, through the maintenance procedures, and to the end of the final inspection where ARC can be signed off electronically.
The Paperless System is a direct data entry method where no paper is needed on any work processes. It will replace the old barcode scanning system, where barcoding was needed on all tools and hardcopy work orders. With the new system, the number of procedures to be completed are linked to digital protocols. This provides a stronger quality control and reduces the risk of mistakes.Email Post to a Friend
