Rusada to Launch Mobile Apps for Flight Operations and Engineering

Applications will integrate with Rusada’s aviation maintenance technology, ENVISION® nGen

Rusada will showcase two new mobile applications that are being developed to integrate with their aviation maintenance and engineering suite, ENVISION® nGen.

The applications, “Flight Log” and “Engineering Portal” have been developed for use on Android and iOS tablet devices and are based on requirements gathered from across Rusada’s user community of airlines, rotor operators and MROs.

Cameron Molyneux, Rusada’s Head of Technology said: “Throughout the development process we focussed on two guiding principles; Firstly, users need access to the information they need when and where they need it. Our apps have been engineered to be used regardless of connectivity to the main nGen system.”

Cameron continued: “Secondly, maintenance information systems are only as good as the data that is input – our goal was to allow users to input accurate data with as little interruption to their day-to-day tasks as possible.”

The Engineering Portal application allows users to download work orders and related task lists onto a device which can then be taken offline for use in an environment that has limited connectivity. Parts and tools can be requested and tasks can be signed off while in offline mode before being synched with the main system when connectivity is restored and actions triggered.

Similarly, the Flight Log app can be used in offline mode on the flight deck and can be unique to either the pilot or the aircraft, depending on how the user organisation defines its process. An intuitive interface allows the flight crew to capture vital flight data that is directly input into the operations information system for Flight and roster monitoring which improves the accuracy of data and eliminates duplication of effort.

Cameron concluded: “Although still in development phase, we have demonstrated the functionality of both applications to a selection of our customers and have been encouraged by the constructive feedback.”

The applications, “Flight Log” and “Engineering Portal”, will be demonstrated at the forthcoming Airline and Aerospace MRO and Flight Operations Conference taking place in Amsterdam 5th and 6th June 2018 and delegates at the show can book time with Cameron Molyneux and the team here.
