At AFI KLM E&M, digitalization doesn’t just mean doing the same job with a tablet instead of a checkboard - it’s about using digital tools to open up new ways of working that are faster, smarter and more efficient. And for particularly cumbersome and time-consuming processes like cabin maintenance inspection, digitalization can streamline the workflow to cut inspection times in half!
Cabin Check 2.0
Want to optimize cabin maintenance? There's an app for that!
Marketed through the MRO Lab’s continuous innovation program, a new app named Airin’t is making life much easier for our cabin inspection mechanics: rather than having to leave the aircraft to look up technical documentation on a separate computer, everything they need is now at their fingertips via a hand-held tablet, which also displays a 3D plan of the cabin so they can precisely indicate any areas requiring attention.
Cabin Check 2.0
In addition to slashing inspection times, this solution also reduces the risk of data input errors, and creates a traceable data stream that will significantly improve cabin maintenance – and therefore customer satisfaction – in the long term.
- Significant reduction in TATs
- Reduces human error and improves oversight
- Generates cost savings
- Creates a precise, traceable data trail
“Taking a 777 Eco Cabin as our example, before Cabin App came out, a cabin inspection used to require two mechanics for an entire shift. With Cabin App, that task now takes just two hours, and possible P/N errors at ordering level have been drastically reduced, if not abolished altogether.”
