Boeing (NYSE: BA) said that Air Canada has signed an agreement to implement the Boeing Maintenance Performance Toolbox to support maintenance operations for its 767, 777, 787 and 737 MAX airplane fleets.
The Maintenance Performance Toolbox suite delivers real-time access to information that technicians need to resolve airplane maintenance issues. As part of the toolbox deployment project, Boeing will also provide services for transition and migration of customized data from maintenance management applications currently used by Air Canada, and will enable integration with existing maintenance resource planning systems.
“Lean practices are essential to our operations,” said Alan Butterfield, Air Canada vice president of maintenance and engineering. “By implementing Maintenance Performance Toolbox, we will be moving from legacy IT to ´lean IT´ solutions. As we move ahead with fleet expansion, this Boeing solution will enable us to streamline and standardize access to maintenance information.”
Boeing offers a comprehensive portfolio of commercial aviation services, collectively known as the Boeing Edge, bringing value and advantages to customers and the industry.
