Lufthansa Technik AG has developed an end-to-end maintenance concept called Maintwise, tailored to the individual needs of its customers. The product is available as a consulting service.
Maintwise allows Lufthansa Technik to address the individual aircraft operator's highly specific circumstances. In cooperation with the customer's planning and engineering experts, the Lufthansa Technik engineers devise an individual maintenance concept, which harmonises the flight plan optimally with the maintenance programme.
Depending on the customer's objective, attention focuses here on delivering better aircraft availability or lower maintenance costs. Further objectives can include improving planning stability or increasing flexibility for aircraft deployment.
The customer's requirements are identified in a first step. The Lufthansa Technik experts then define possible optimisation criteria.
Various concepts are simulated and evaluated. Based on these investigations, Lufthansa Technik develops a series of optimised maintenance concepts from which the customer chooses the model best suited to their objectives. The handover of the final concept to the customer marks the conclusion of the project.
Freya Schmitz, Maintenance Concept Engineer at Lufthansa Technik, explains: "All of our customers can benefit from the advantages of Maintwise. The product offers interesting competitive advantages for start-up airlines or airlines with growing fleets or new routes as well as for operators, whose goal is to reduce the ground times of their aircraft or reduce maintenance costs."
Schmitz gave a presentation outlining the details of the Maintwise product at the MRO Russia & CIS trade fair, which took place in Moscow from March 1 to 2.
With some 35 subsidiaries and affiliates, the Lufthansa Technik Group is one of the leading providers of technical aircraft services in the world.
