Aviation maintenance software is now more important than ever and much more is being required of it. Aviation software applications are evolving with end users’ needs for more data analysis and forecasting capabilities being based on faster and easier access to greater quantities of maintenance information or FBO “events.” As a result, more information and maintenance “advice” can be delivered to the first responders and technicians performing maintenance activities. This includes remote access to maintenance manuals, diagrams, pictures and videos with the end result being quicker return of assets to an approved operational status.
What are present and future aviation software trends? Z Bar-ON, founder and CEO of Component Control, San Diego believes that trying to figure out what’s “next” is not hard to predict for aviation software. “More connectivity, better integration between systems, more mobile devices, more touch screens capability, more cloud capability, and RFID will eventually take off,” he says. “Different software products will attempt to lead simultaneously in these different areas. Ultimately it’s the customer or the end user of the software that will determine where these software products go. We have always let our customers lead us in terms of innovated technologies and how best practice is reflected in the functional processes the software supports.”
In addition to this customer information, leading aviation software providers also now have decades of product development built into their systems, offering a robust and stable software system on which to add next-generation features, modules or apps. The best providers consistently add functionality and features in direct response to the needs and experiences of their users.
