KUALA LUMPUR, April 23 (Bernama) -- Malaysia Airlines (MAS) announced today that it has deployed a full suite of aviation solutions by Ramco Systems (Ramco) to provide maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) support for over 145 aircraft.
In a statement Thursday, MAS said the solution enables about 300 MAS engineers to access future-ready enterprise software, allowing them to automate or streamline many engineering functions, simplify compliance checks, and improve inventory management and hangar maintenance.
"We made a major decision to migrate from a legacy system to Ramco's integrated platform.
"Not only did we set a record time of 11 months for implementation, we are now able to reap exceptional benefits and transform our engineering solutions across multiple locations," MAS Group CEO Ahmad Jauhari Yahya said.
The statement said by using bar code-enabled features and automation, the national carrier is now able to reduce the time taken to move spares from suppliers to warehouses and hangars worldwide.
"Billing and compliance with multiple regulator functions will enable us to improve efficiency and scale-up our MRO business to address third-party airlines worldwide.
"By July 2015, another 800 airline engineering and operational staff will be connected to the Ramco platform," it said.
