Lufthansa Technik AG develops end-to-end maintenance concepts
tailored to the individual needs of the customer. Its new product
called Maintwise is available to customers of Lufthansa Technik as a
consulting service.

Maintwise allows Lufthansa Technik to address the individual aircraft
operator's highly specific circumstances. In cooperation with the
customer's planning and engineering experts, the Lufthansa Technik
engineers devise an individual maintenance concept, which harmonizes
the flight plan optimally with the maintenance program. Depending on
the customer's objective, attention focuses here on delivering better
aircraft availability or lower maintenance costs. Further objectives
can include improving planning stability or increasing flexibility
for aircraft deployment.

The customer's requirements are identified in a first step. The
Lufthansa Technik experts then define possible optimization criteria.
Various concepts are simulated and evaluated. Based on these
investigations, Lufthansa Technik develops a series of optimized
maintenance concepts from which the customer chooses the model best
suited to their objectives. The handover of the final concept to the
customer marks the conclusion of the project.

Freya Schmitz, Maintenance Concept Engineer at Lufthansa Technik,
explains: "All of our customers can benefit from the advantages of
Maintwise. The product offers interesting competitive advantages for
start-up airlines or airlines with growing fleets or new routes as
well as for operators, whose goal is to reduce the ground times of
their aircraft or reduce maintenance costs."

Freya Schmitz will give a presentation outlining the details of the
Maintwise product at the MRO Russia & CIS trade fair, which takes
place in Moscow from 1 to 2 March.
