KBR Wyle provides program management, kitting, warehouse management and supply chain services for Hill Air Force Base in Utah. After dealing with the limitations of a paper-based maintenance and inspection system to complete its induction processes, the provider made the productivity leap to Honeywell Voice. By doing so, they streamlined their entire induction process by guiding technicians step-by-step from beginning to end. Watch how they were able to increase their number of inspections and analyze real-time data.
As the first company in the European aviation sector, Lufthansa Technik AG has optimized the maintenance process of auxiliary power units (APUs) using the Honeywell Voice maintenance and inspection solution. Their process requires technicians to assess the external conditions of transport containers and components, and then record their findings in the primary diagnostics. The same process applies to the entire disassembly of each part of the APU, including part numbers. Before installing Honeywell Voice, the process required two mechanics to share the duty of manually checking diagnosis and inputting data into a computer. See how mechanics can now experience the hands-free, eyes-free efficiencies of Honeywell Voice, allowing them to concentrate fully on the task at hand and document activities in real time.
The aerospace industry relies on meticulous maintenance and inspection processes to ensure flight safety and meet regulatory compliance. Take an inside look at how Honeywell Voice enables voice-directed efficiencies with step-by-step instructions to help technicians maintain process rigor and automate record keeping in the aerospace industry.
U.S. aviation regulators assessing Boeing Co.’s 737 Max sometimes didn’t follow their own rules, used out-of-date procedures and lacked the resources and expertise to fully vet the design changes implicated in two fatal crashes, a review panel has concluded.
Europe’s relationship with the U.S. has been stretched to the limit by President Donald Trump’s “America First’’ foreign policy. But disputes about aircraft subsidies and auto tariffs coming to a head over the next two months could put the allies in a trade war.
