Boeing (NYSE: BA) said that Norwegian Air Shuttle has agreed to implement Boeing´s new suite of mobile maintenance applications to enhance productivity and efficiency in Norwegian´s line maintenance operations.
With these applications available on iPad devices, Norwegian maintenance technicians will have real-time, mobile access to technical manuals, part numbers and parts inventory availability, maintenance history and other information needed to support time-critical maintenance tasks. Two-way collaboration capabilities will also enable Norwegian technicians to rapidly share documents, photos and other relevant information needed in maintenance troubleshooting to support operations decisions and improve maintenance turn times.
Launched at the recent MRO Europe conference in London, the new mobile maintenance applications suite includes Toolbox Mobile Library, Toolbox Mobile Parts and Maintenance Turn Time. The products were developed based on extensive input from several airlines.
