Japan Airlines selects GE Aviation for Digital Records Management across its fleet of more than 200 airplanes. The implementation is currently underway and adds to the 700 million aircraft maintenance records being maintained on GE's digital records management system, AirVault. The agreement includes maintenance and engineering integration of the system at the JAL facilities around the world.
"We're thrilled to welcome JAL to the growing AirVault family. The ability to connect records and data across their entire fleet and with the IT systems they use to manage their fleet will improve data availability and increase productivity," said Joel Klooster, VP and general manager Asia Pacific with GE Aviation's Digital Group.
"The combination of GE's domain expertise in flight analytics and engine diagnostics to bring disparate data together will further enable web-based fleet maintenance."
"To date, JAL has been publishing and storing enormous amount of paper base maintenance records and has been spending huge resource for searching required data. By introducing AirVault, we will be able to digitize all of our maintenance records, store it securely and quickly search it when it is required, which will enable our mechanics to focus on their original maintenance tasks. By utilizing AirVault, we will transform mechanic's work-style, further enhance safety and improve customer service," said Hideki Ishii, vice president, IT Planning, JAL Engineering Co., Ltd.
The AirVault Digital Records Management system provides a comprehensive solution that digitizes, indexes and archives all airline record types. AirVault provides a centralized location for record search, administration, support and processing. The AirVault web search tool makes it simple to search and retrieve by utilizing word search or indexed data filters. Document indexing can also be exported for use in dashboards, reports or analytics.
