14:00 – 17:30 Pre-conference Digital Transformation in Aviation Workshop
(Workshop / Showcase room)

With the explosion of data and new technologies in the past 3 years, it is clear that Digital Transformation is something with which every airline and aviation company must engage. But what is ‘digital transformation’ and what are its implications for management, and those using and developing software solutions?


Airlines and large aviation companies are complex operations, and their systems are normally reliant on an IT architecture that is outdated and fragmented. Data sits in silos across the company and that silo separation limits the company’s ability to adopt a digital strategy. Upgrading that technology is extremely time consuming, complex and costly. So how can airlines and aviation companies benefit from new digital technologies, embrace transformation, and bring the data silos together to enable real-time insights?


During the interactive workshop, you will learn answers to these questions, as well as understand the history of the digital age. You will learn lessons from other industries and what’s trending in aviation as well as see case studies of agile IT solutions that can integrate with traditional IT infrastructures.


At the end of the session, participants will have a working knowledge of the different digital technologies trending in aviation and which new technologies are coming to market; understand the benefits of working with agile technology compared to traditional methods; and know how to implement this to drive digital transformation. The workshop will close with a Q&A session and participants are invited to send in their key questions and details of any digital problems facing their companies ahead of the session – our experts will then ensure you leave with the answers and knowledge needed to meet these challenges.

OEM Digital Innovations: Aircraft Connectivity
Connectivity makes our daily lives easier: why should it be different for aircraft operations? Making connectivity a simple end-to-end journey and delivering value is our fundamental objective. Flight crews, cabin crews, maintenance staff on the ground need to easily access data to perform their job more efficiently. Secure, seamless coverage delivering operational data live from the aircraft will transform airline operations. Data collection from the ecosystem, transmission and on-ground analysis is key to bringing passenger experiences alive, enabling better decision making for pilots, reducing the maintenance time, lowering costs and decreasing the total cost of ownership. Data collection from Aircraft or On-board data update are subject to varying degrees of criticality, privacy, volume, and speed. To which extend could we have a harmonized management of these data flows?

IT Vendor Focus: Paperless Maintenance in the eye of the digital mesh – the towering eye wall: Data, Augmented Analytics and Maintenance Cost Control
IATA’s guidance material for paperless maintenance is vast and comprehensive; the ATA e-business program covers it all from e-logbook to warranty claims. Smart RFID tags automatically share the maintenance status of a removed component. However, RPA solutions are developed to automate the printing of documents and SBs are distributed in PDF format. Maintenance invoicing is further behind with e-invoicing on IATA’s agenda for years.Real-time fleet and lease cost management, cost driven task planning, automated invoice control, tail centric performance and cost tracking are feasible. Tomorrow’s savings are driven by cost driver analytics, real-time cost impact awareness, predictive, prescriptive cost analysis embedded in a collaborative decision making process of Maintenance Control Center (MCC) and Integrated Operations Control Center (IOCC). How? Engage in agile incremental minimum viable concept (MVC) and minimum viable product (MVP) development. Early adapters accelerate their business, maintain a competitive advantage and assure AI readiness for tomorrow.
Gesine Varfis, Marketing Manager, APSYS
17:15 – 17:45

IT Vendor Focus: Forecasting Spare Parts for Optimization of MRO Inventory
Forecasting spare parts is difficult, but to know what spares to hold, where to hold them and in what quantity is crucial. To identify maximum supply of spare parts at minimal costs there is the need to consider the demand uncertainty dimension and the trade-off between excessive inventory vs. unwarranted aircraft down-time when calculating replenishment parameters. During this presentation Cervino Consulting will walk you through how to use historical data and clever algorithms to identify when to order new stock and the maximum supply of spare parts required.

     (Workshop / Showcase room)

09:00 – 09:30

Keynote: How Trajectory Based Operations (TBO) will drive a paradigm change in the way airlines operate. How to ensure your airline is ready to benefit.

Paradigm Change is coming, and while the aviation industry associates the term with just about everything, this time it’s real.

Both described as paradigm-changing, Digital Data came to prominence in the mid-1980s. It promised a lot, but after three decades the result is fragmented and proprietary and hasn’t delivered much, so far. The EFB journey began not much later as the phoenix from ELS. EFB was going to change the way pilots did just about everything, but the name got in the way, and so far it has achieved little except automation of the status quo, and the business case for both remains elusive.

Trajectory Based Operations (TBO) will drive real paradigm change in the way airlines operate and do business. Unlike Digital Data and EFB, the industry does not have 30 years to do it and needs to get it pretty much right the first time.

Digital Data and EFB will be essential components of the TBO system and will make the business cases irrelevant because both will be crucial to TBO outcomes. Critically, TBO, while having technology-based enablers, is not a technology-driven system; nevertheless, TBO will require wholesale system change that will likely test the operational and project capability of most airlines.

TBO is a big ask. Can an industry so successful at making simple things difficult even contemplate something as significant as TBO or do we have to break the way we’ve been doing things for years and find a different path?

In a strategic insight into TBO, Michael will discuss where airlines need to shift focus to ensure their readiness for what will be paradigm-changing and profound for the aviation industry.

Deep Turnaround: Still collecting data manually? How Artificial Intelligence revolutionizes Ground Operations

Punctual turnarounds have become more and more a critical success factor for the on-time performance of airlines. To successfully implement Turnaround Management airlines need to consider the following action fields:
  • Definition and set up of a reference model, that is agreed with the suppliers
  • Monitoring of current ground handling by defining target/actual times
  • Setup of corresponding Service Level Agreements (SLAs)
  • Performance monitoring and analysis by Quality- and SLA management.

These action fields are the prerequisite to successfully manage the seamless interplay between airport, airline and ground service providers. Even there is a great potential to improve the on-time performance, pro-actively controlling ground processes is still a relatively uncharted territory for many airlines though. The period of time between on-blocks and off-blocks very often still remains a “black box”. The important question therefore is: Why is there still such a hesitation among airlines to implement a Turnaround Management? This presentation will outline some of the biggest obstacles including the laborious gathering of the necessary data to visualize the turnaround performance in real-time. But with new technologies available on the market, this problem is past: Artificial Intelligence (AI) today allows airlines to easily transform unstructured data simply from a video stream into “turnaround time stamps” and will omit the burden of manual data collection. This presentation therefore demonstrates how newest AI video stream technology will revolutionize the current Turnaround Management concepts into a highly efficient “Deep Turnaround”.

MRO Workshop Session: M&E / MRO System Health-Check

The rate of technology innovation and advancements with MRO software outpaces adoption by business units. Making optimal use of existing software applications starts with qualitatively and quantitatively analysing business functions usage and adoption against technology capabilities. Defining opportunities from that analysis and setting a strategy for improvements should then follow. Additionally, embedding a culture of continuous improvement and standardizing the handling of software releases to stay current is a common challenge to be addressed:
  • How well are your current M&E / MRO functions enabled with available technology? Are systems used efficiently and to their full potential for the business?
  • Does the maintenance organization have the right decision support information in a comprehensive and timely fashion?
  • What is the integrity of the data? Do all stakeholders trust it or do they have their own methods of capture? Is there one source of truth?
  • How well are you keeping up with system releases and emerging industry trends? Are you on the latest versions? How do you stay abreast of any advancements in business processes and corresponding software impacts?
