Optimising real-time solutions to generate operational efficiency, and generating cost savings for more than 500 airplanes, Boeing leverages on the potential of data analytics for effective business management.
At the 2016 Farnborough International Air show, Boeing announced agreements to provide six customers with advanced data analytics solutions. The offerings will help customers increase efficiency and drive down the costs of operating more than 500 airplanes.
Boeing offers a wide range of analytics tools that empower airlines to make better decisions and significantly improve performance on the ground and in the air.
The six agreements include:
“Data analytics powers many of the services Boeing provides customers around the globe,” said Stan Deal, senior vice president, Boeing Commercial Aviation Services. “From effectively managing inventory and reducing fuel consumption to scheduling pilots and cabin crews, Boeing provides airlines with tools to improve efficiency and reduce operating costs.”
Airlines around the world rely on Boeing – and its subsidiaries AerData and Jeppesen – to deliver advanced analytics tools and software to improve operational efficiency and lower costs.
Boeing’s portfolio of advanced analytics tools includes crew scheduling, digital navigation, management and maintenance of leased airplanes and engines, management of parts inventories, flight optimization software, flight planning tools, optimized maintenance programs and fuel efficiency tools.
Furthermore, the company does not fear impact of Brexit either and plans to expand its research operations in the U.K to create 2,000 new jobs as a part of a new deal with the British government. This new jobs would mean Boeing would double the number of its staffers in U.K. to 4,000 in total.
“Boeing has already doubled its U.K. workforce and more than doubled its annual spending with the UK supply chain over the last five years, to more than 2,000 people and £1.8 billion ($2.3 billion) in 2015,” CNN reports.
