Portugália Airlines (PGA) has successfully turned off its legacy systems and started to manage its entire MRO data in AMOS recently.
Both the PGA project team and the Swiss AS onsite go-live support crew were well prepared which ensured the switch over went smoothly. This meant also that the interfaces to 3rd party systems were operational right from the start. In particular the data transfer was very well managed by PGA internally and in addition to the minimum data level, much historical data was migrated into AMOS. Prior to the big-bang go-live, all AMOS users (technicians and back office users) were trained and PGA decided on a combination of e-learning, train-the-trainer approach and traditional classroom training.
First AMOS customer gone live with underlying Oracle database
The highlight of the AMOS implementation at PGA is that AMOS was implemented for the first time relying on an Oracle database.
“We congratulate our launch customer PGA on the successful go-live and are pleased to offer our customers a wider choice with regard to the underlying database,” states Ronald Schaeuffele, CEO of Swiss-AS.
Swiss-AS had strategically focused on realising an AMOS version that is database independent and followed the market requirement to be more flexible in terms of predetermined databases.
