Algerian flag carrier Air Algerie has become the launch customer for a new digital maintenance documentation service being launched by aircraft manufacturer ATR and software specialist Swiss-AS.
ATR will provide Air Algerie with raw data from line maintenance publications in an XML format that can be uploaded into Swiss-AS AMOS maintenance software.
ATR says the service will enable the airline to shorten revision processes, speed up and digitalize distribution of publications, improve information consistency across aircraft manuals, automate revision tracking and document control, and save time while preparing for regulatory audits.
Through the new system, ATR will provide a ZIP file on its maintenance portal of data such as maintenance procedures, electrical standard practices, illustrated parts data, schematic and wiring diagrams, and parts and vendors lists. The airline will be able to download the file directly via the AMOS software and begin using it.
ATR and Swiss-AS first announced their partnership in April 2023 which was the first of its kind between an aircraft manufacturer and an MRO software company. The partnership’s goal is to customize maintenance data into AMOS software to help airlines digitalize their maintenance management.
