– Less than 40% of organizations are on the latest releases of their core MRO software systems
– The usage of what is installed and available to end-users is lower than 60%
– Technology enablement of business tasks and processes is just at 50%
Where is your organization on this spectrum? 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 (non-technical) handling of software releases to stay current is a common challenge to be addressed. This workshop looks into ways of keeping both business processes and software releases optimal and in sync.
- Do you continuously measure the effectiveness and performance of your business processes?
- How well are your current M&E / MRO processes enabled with available technology? Are systems used efficiently and to their full potential for the business?
- Does each role in your the maintenance organization have the right decision support information in a real-time 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? Do you stay abreast of advancements in business processes and corresponding software impacts?
- Processes mapping
- Solutions blueprinting
- Measuring processes effectiveness
- Implementing changes with processes and software

We will talk about the AI for maintenance demand (failures and removals) driven by aircraft usage – a domain of reliability analysis. No existing solution was found to provide fully automated analysis not requiring engineering labor, yet explainable to reliability engineers. The developed AI application is called Reliability Digital Twin (RDT) and works with existing data. The custom AI/ML methods work with data sets that are often smaller than necessary for ML library functions. RDT functions include failure rate curve characterization (e.g., a bathtub curve), predictive trending of fleet reliability, bad actor parts detection, bad actor hosts detection, subpopulation analysis, No Fault Found (NFF) removal characterization, and more. These functions support improved test/repair effectiveness, identification of emerging failure modes, and feedback for bad actor remediation efforts. Consistent data analysis results available across the enterprise from the point of maintenance to system engineering.
This presentation will also discuss some software and IT topics. One, is Analytics Engine operationally deployed with automated reporting app, early in the software cycle. Another, is RDT microservice architecture and its integration with BI tools and host IT system. Yet another topic is simulation-based verification of the AI application more typical for flight software processes than for a cloud app lifecycle.

During the presentation Norwegian will outline the solution’s key features and benefits and it will be explain how the Cruise Profile Optimizer retrieves real-time flight plan and aircraft performance data (cost index, weight, etc), and the most accurate and advanced wind and temperature data from the Met Office 10k global weather forecast solution to provide pilots with real-time in-flight decision support to select a cost-optimal flight path.
