The entire Swiss International Air Lines fleet is now managed in AMOS. “Having a complete technical overview of all SWISS data in AMOS has reduced the complexity of the fleet management while significantly increasing cost transparency,” states Peter Wojahn, chief technical officer of SWISS.
Before the in-sourcing process was finalized, SWISS managed only the Avro and A330 fleet in-house. SWISS has now taken over the responsibility for 84 instead of the 32 aircraft so far. This also means that SWISS relies heavily on AMOS in its full extent to cope with the significant strategic change.
Managing the 84 aircraft and more to come will now be the daily business of SWISS Technical Services.
Project “Manumea“ successfully completed
Project “Manumea” was launched by SWISS to in-source its Part M and Line Maintenance activities from an external MRO provider. Now SWISS Technical Services is responsible for the entire fleet including the A320 and A340 aircraft. After months of preparation, the transfer of services from the 3rd party MRO provider to SWISS Technical Services took place successfully in April 2012. Since the SWISS MRO data for the A320 and A340 aircraft was historically kept in the maintenance provider’s system, the data was transferred into AMOS in the context of the Manumea project. Several working groups with assigned tasks ensured that AMOS quickly came up to speed in managing the complete SWISS fleet. The data transfer, as in most projects, was the major hurdle to overcome. The main challenge was that the data in the legacy ERP system was structured differently to that of a typical MRO software. However, the project team, supported by Swiss-AS experts, solved this issue successfully and this guaranteed that the go-live was on time.
