Amsterdam, The Netherlands; 6 March 2017
AerData, a Boeing Company, announced today an agreement with Finnair, the flag carrier and largest airline of Finland, for AerData’s Engine Fleet Planning And Costing (EFPAC) software. AerData’s software and services improve efficiencies and enhance competitiveness for customers, including some of the world’s largest airlines, lessors and MROs.
EFPAC utilizes financial, operational and technical data for enhanced decision making throughout the entire organization for engines, APU’s and landing gear. EFPAC collects maintenance and performance data to establish a maintenance plan. It employs descriptive analytics to visualize shop visit details and overall engine maintenance status. EFPAC uses prescriptive analytics to simulate future maintenance plan scenarios, allowing airline personnel to optimize shop visit planning, predict engine component life and model financial aspects of engine assets. The EFPAC analytics tool helps airlines perform lifecycle analysis in hours or days, while traditional manual methods typically take weeks to complete.
Commenting on the announcement, Jari Huhtinen, VP Technical Operations, Finnair said, "Once fully implemented, EFPAC will enable engine life cycle cost optimization and a more efficient evaluation of different scenarios related to fleet changes, both of which are important as Finnair fleet continues to grow."
Matthew Bull, CEO, AerData said, “We are excited that Finnair chose AerData, a decision based not only on our products but also on our teams unrivalled technical knowledge and expertise in engine planning. EFPAC will help facilitate Finnair’s engine technical records, lease management, financial forecasting and maintenance optimization.”
