Aircraft Engine Maintenance

Mixed Reality boosts the performance of the skilled personnel in aircraft maintenance uncovering untapped areas of smart cost-cutting and ensuring the highest level of accuracy during assembly and inspection.

Engine Inspection and Maintenance

problem

Technicians use sizable checklists to perform routine maintenance tasks. Some procedures require Engineering order to be printed which delays execution.

  • Following lengthy manuals is time consuming
  • Tablet or laptop require hands to navigate
  • Paper sheets need to be marked manually
solution

A knowledge management application for the mixed reality glasses can deliver contextualised intelligence to maintenance engineers.

  • Interactive voice-controlled assistant
  • Hands-free access to reference materials
  • Automated generation of reports

Junior Training

problem

It takes significant amount of time to train new engineer to perform procedures with sufficient accuracy. Regular refresher courses are still required throughout the year.

  • Many areas demand error-free execution
  • Time of the qualified instructor is limited
  • Junior engineers need to practice in a safe environment
solution

A comprehensive training program can be developed for virtually any piece of equipment or technical process and delivered via mixed reality glasses.

  • Automated training program with immersive content
  • Hands-free access to reference materials
  • Remote expert

High Complexity Assembly

problem

There are no readily available manuals to perform a substandard task or to troubleshoot an issue.

  • Uncertainty in diagnosing an issue
  • Limited time to resolve the problem
  • Damaged unit
solution

Mixed reality glasses help less experienced technician to get real-time advice from the senior expert.

  • Remote expert
  • Interactive 3D model of the unit
  • Hands-free access to reference materials
  • Recording of video for future reference

Spare Parts Requisition

problem

All necessary spare parts are not always available in the shop.

  • Storage at multiple locations
  • Inaccurate records of stock
  • Delays in delivery
solution

A technician can request a spare part right within the interface of the mixed reality device without interrupting the maintenance procedure.

  • Real-time access to the stock records
  • Hands-free ordering of the items
