Register to view this On-Demand Webinar (recorded 31st March 2022) to see the latest advances in Digital Twin and Data Science technology with a demo and full overview of the Virtual Twin Experience from Dassault Systèmes – the next generation virtual twin, providing a 360° virtual model of the entire aircraft maintenance process. Aircraft maintenance is an intensely complex operation – requiring countless precise, on-the-spot decisions to be made each time an aircraft lands and gets ready for take-off again. Overlooking even the tiniest detail can exact a heavy price operationally and financially. Non-informed and incorrect decisions can increase maintenance costs and turnaround time, jeopardize flight safety, and severely affect fleet availability. As you will see, the Virtual Twin Experience, draws data from multiple sources, including MRO / M&E Systems as well as terabytes of aircraft flight and maintenance data. Uniquely combining the data with knowledge and experiences taken from real-world processes, it uses the latest data science (machine learning, IoT, modelling, etc.) to provide engineers and key maintenance personnel with the data and tools needed to make instant informed decisions, at the point of maintenance or when planning ahead.
During the Webinar, Dassault Systèmes experts will take you on a tour of the full array of data analytics tools, key features, and functionality, such as predictive maintenance and analytics, spare parts optimization and stock availability, resource optimization, advanced maintenance planning, 3D modelling, and more. You will see the benefits of putting the Virtual Twin Experience at the heart of any digital maintenance strategy and how to utilize data-driven maintenance to improve operational performance.
The Webinar is divided into four key sections:
- Dassault Systèmes Overview, Industry Challenges, and Digital MRO Strategy
The Webinar begins with an overview of Dassault Systèmes solutions, including the popular 3DEXPERIENCE platform, before looking at the challenges facing airlines today. Challenges such as increased competition, meeting expected operational performance, pressure to reduce costs, fleet renewals to meet sustainability goals, and more. As you will see, to overcome these challenges it is becoming critical for airlines, operators and MRO facilities to embrace digital transformation and transition from disconnected legacy maintenance systems to a fully-integrated digital platform capable of enhancing collaboration, agility and efficiency. You will see how the Virtual Twin Experience sits at the core of this digital strategy.
- Virtual Twin Experience for MRO Overview:
Next you will be introduced to the Virtual Twin Experience, an executable virtual model of a physical system which brings in learning and experiences taken from real-world processes to update the digital twin model. Achieving this closed-loop capability is the full realization of benefits to be gained from the convergence of the virtual and real worlds. It provides users with a full 360° virtual model of the entire aircraft maintenance process to provide engineers and key maintenance personnel with the data and tools needed to make instant informed decisions, at the point of maintenance or when planning ahead to avoid costly AOGs
- Virtual Twin Experience Use Cases: Supply Chain, Reliability, Predicting Failures
Next you will be walked through some use cases highlighting how 360° virtual views are enabling key personnel to make informed decisions for the improvement of overall fleet availability, including:
- Improving Asset Reliability: Advanced data analytics detect commonalities in the occurrences of events, failures or error messages that are logged by the different aircraft. Failures can be anticipated by the early detection of unexpected behaviour captured in the IoT data as well as ’verbatims’ detected in unstructured data sources such as flight reports, inspection reports issued after operations performed on the engines, and the aircraft. Through the 360° view, engineers have immediate access to all relevant information, contextualized and classified, to determine when to change a particular part before it becomes a problem leading to an AOG.
- Improving Supply Chain Availability: As you will see, users can use the Virtual Twin Experience to analyze historical supply chain data to better understand which parts need to be in stock or at which base, and to have immediate access, regardless of the suppliers, on the progress status of all steps that are part of the end-to-end business process to track the lead-time of the spare parts.
- Reducing Mean Time to Recovery: Anticipating failures is useful to avoid unplanned downtimes. However, being able to determine in advance which systems are likely to fail, which parts will have to be repaired/replaced and which resources will be required is key to reducing the duration of the planned downtimes needed to perform the activities. By projecting data acquired from the real-world evidence onto the virtual twin, it is possible to visualize where the problem is located on the aircraft, which systems are contributing to the repair and how to plan in the repair by consulting the operating procedures.
- Demo: Virtual Twin Experience – Leverage Data to Improve Planning Operations and Predict Unplanned Events.
Finally, you will see a demo of the Virtual Twin Experience. Using the interface based on the popular Dassault Systèmes 3DEXPERIENCE platform and available on all devices, you will see how to leverage data to improve planned operations and predict unplanned events. You will then see how the system analyzes all the maintenance indicators that belong to the aircraft’s components and how all the technical logs from maintenance operations and structured aircraft sensor data can be analyzed and connected and displayed in the platform, even in a 3D format. You will see how engineers can investigate issues in visual 3D format and make the right decision to solve them, as well as how, by collecting real-time data, to anticipate future failures and plan actions ahead of time in order to optimize the fleet availability.
About the Aircraft IT Webinar Series:
Every 2 weeks the Aircraft IT website hosts a different live Webinar, each Webinar hosted by a different IT Vendor. These sessions represent the perfect opportunity to learn about a software solution in a more informal manner and to quickly gain an in-depth knowledge of all the major systems on the market, all from the comfort of your own office or home with no sales pressure.
The IT vendor provides a live software demonstration/masterclass of their solution and explains how it can benefit airlines, MROs, Operators, OEMs, Leasing Companies. Once logged on, online delegates can ask questions via the interactive sections of the Webinar or simply sit back and watch and listen to the demonstration. There are two sessions during the day, each differently times to accommodate all time zones.
Each Webinar session is recorded, and an On-Demand version is then posted back to the Aircraft IT website a few days after the live session to allow you to view the content again with your colleagues. The library of On-Demand Webinar recordings provides an invaluable reference source of Flight Operations software demonstrations from the World’s leading Flight Operations IT Vendors.
