Finnair commits to AMOS

In Spring 2011, Swiss-AS and Finnair Technical Services started a project definition phase to review and evaluate the AMOS product in the context of the Finnish MRO provider’s integrated business processes. The objective was to analyse the software’s functions and to define the project plan for the implementation phase. Swiss-AS is pleased to announce the successful completion of the project definition phase and the continuation of the project implementation phase.

Finnair Technical Services will become one of the most extensive users of the new AMOS functions. AMOS will be used to support the continuing airworthiness, maintenance and for other technical services of the Finnair fleet and their customers’ aircraft, to plan and perform Base Maintenance at their Helsinki facility, and to manage and track the internal Component Shop repair cycle. At “Go-Live”, Finnair Technical Services will benefit immediately from the integrated Shift Planning tools for rostering and capacity planning.

“With AMOS we can bring further efficiencies into Finnair’s MRO processes. AMOS will replace our current system consisting of mainframe based legacy, ERP, planning and many other supplemented software. Important part of AMOS as a product is the implementation project model, which has proven to be effective in Swiss-AS customer projects,” says Jorma Ryske, director of IT, Finnair Technical Services.

E-Techlog, SPEC2000, and onboard loadable software

Finnair Technical Services will interface their existing aircraft e-TechLog advanced system with AMOS. The integration of both systems will facilitate an efficient defect control and planning process.

“Swiss-As is heavily investing in the further development of AMOS MRO functions. Welcoming Finnair Technical Services to our customer base, takes all our efforts into account,” states Ronald Schaeuffele, CEO at Swiss-AS.

Finnair Technical Services adhere to a wholly integrated Spec2000 ordering process (Chapters 2, 3 and 4) which is fully supported by AMOS. Additionally, the new AMOS Onboard Loadable Software configuration control programs will enable them to support the approaching delivery of the A350.
