IBM has announced new software for the aviation industry designed to improve fleet maintenance operations, reduce operational costs, and help improve regulatory compliance. The solution for Maintenance Repair and Overhaul (MRO) was designed to help automate processes and deliver repair information to the line maintenance technicians.
The IBM Technical Document Management and Delivery Solution brings together software from the IBM Content Management portfolio and technology from Enigma, Inc. When used with an airline's existing MRO system, the solution provides immediate visibility into maintenance change notices and helps automate document management.
The new solution provides access to information spread across multiple information systems so that engineers can update and distribute technical publications, and technicians can perform maintenance and repairs. IBM Document Manager, part of the IBM content management portfolio, also tracks all changes in the authoring process to help ensure compliance with government regulations.
