AAR CORP. announced the implementation of Airvolution — AAR’s customizable, cloud-based, end-to-end repair cycle management (RCM) tool focused on optimizing the administration of aircraft component repairs — at Textron Aviation Defense.
Airvolution was designed by AAR to meet the demands and challenges of the aviation supply chain by enhancing aviation repair teams’ management efficiencies, reducing operational costs, maximizing productivity, improving component availability, and streamlining supplier performance management.
“Airvolution incorporates AAR’s decades of industry expertise into an easy-to-use SaaS platform,” said Matt Kammerait, AAR’s vice president, Strategy, Planning, and Innovation. “Textron Aviation Defense is an industry leader with a well-known track record for innovation. They were a natural fit for our product launch.”
Textron Aviation Defense LLC — a wholly owned subsidiary of Textron Aviation Inc. — will rely on Airvolution to supplement and modernize current workflows for its repair orders. Textron Aviation Defense will leverage such features as straightforward quote processing, enhanced reporting and data analytics, standardized order management, and comprehensive repair status communications with end-customers and suppliers.
“The launch of Airvolution is the most recent example of AAR’s focus on developing digital technologies to increase efficiencies and decrease operational costs of our customers,” said Rahul S. Ghai, AAR’s chief digital officer. “Implementation of this product with Textron Aviation Defense demonstrates AAR’s commitment to helping our customers better achieve their goals by providing cutting-edge applications, and we look forward to offering the product to AAR’s other customers and end users.”
