Representatives from Lufthansa Technic, Rolls-Royce, Etihad Airways Engineering and Joramco will be among the industry leading experts discussing the industry landscape at the upcoming MRO Middle East Summit in Dubai, UAE.
The one-day conference at the Conrad Hotel on February 24 will focus on topics including 2020 MRO Forecast and Key Trends: Identifying New Opportunities; Strategies to Manage and Reduce Costs and An Ever-Changing Aftermarket Landscape; while case studies will include Predictive Maintenance & Engine Health Monitoring from Rolls-Royce and Engineering: A Case Study About a Successful Partnership in the Region with representatives from Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) and Applied Database Technology (ADT).
Attendees to the event can benefit from insights and experience from the speakers while learning about technologies that can be applied to add value to their own operations.
Jason Sutcliffe, Rolls-Royce’s regional marketing director said: “To Rolls-Royce, availability means ensuring that every time an airline wants to use their aircraft and fly their passengers, it can. Our priorities are influenced by a customer-centric approach and a commitment to aircraft availability.
“This requires us to go way beyond a reactive approach to maintenance and traditional ideas of predicting when engines need servicing. To do this we’ve innovated proprietary technologies embraced in the pioneering spirit of the IntelligentEngine vision. Sensors assess the real-time health of Rolls-Royce Trent engines, anticipate and inform their maintenance needs to eliminate and mitigate any technical disruptions.”
The Tech Talks panel will examine success stories and pitfalls of innovation. Pushing past the already talked about topic of what new tech has emerged, this session will explore how aftermarket businesses have successfully implemented tech and will share their successes and pitfalls along the journey.
Speakers will examine how day to day disruption can be minimised while implementing new technology, the effective implementation of virtual reality and other technology in to training programmes, what worked and what didn’t when deploying robots into MRO processes, the challenges and opportunities of going paperless, and cybersecurity.
Other sessions will take place throughout the day including a 2020 MRO forecast and a session of nine roundtables led by thought leaders and industry experts.
Frederic Dupont, VP Technical Sales & Customer Service, Etihad Engineering, said: “MRO Middle East is one of the key industry events that is a major milestone in our annual event calendar. It provides a platform for us to engage with our customers and peers, meet our partners and keep up-to-date with the latest technologies in the MRO world.
