Comlux Completion successfully completed its first digital maintenance inspection on the BBJ from Hyundai Motor Company at its finishing and service center in Indianapolis. The digital maintenance process tracks parts electronically. In fact, task cards are made using wireless tablets and barcode readers. Documentation can also be entered directly into the system using hand-held devices rather than from an off-plane computer workstation, allowing technicians to stay on board the aircraft. Supervisors can assign jobs electronically and have a real-time view of the entire work progress. On the project management side, purchase orders for parts and services can also be viewed in real time against specific maintenance tasks. This feature enables real-time digital reporting and monitoring throughout the maintenance event.
Mr. Choi, Hyundai Motor Flight Team General Manager, notes that with this system “Our BBJ was initially completed at Comlux Completion and since then Comlux has provided Hyundai Motor Company with highly efficient and reliable maintenance support. Digital maintenance is a great tool that further enhances their capabilities and allows my own team to track the work that has been done on our aircraft in real time.” Scott Meyer, CEO of Comlux Completion states that he “launched the Comlux 3.0 innovation and technology program in the last quarter of 2017” before adding: “I am proud that our teams have already completed their first batch digital maintenance work for BBJ from Hyundai Motor Company, who has been a Comlux recurring customer since 2012. Digital maintenance is not only paperless, but also a fully integrated work order management tool. It increases reliability, eliminates potential human errors and reduces redundancy. All departments can instantly and transparently track the progress of documentation, bringing greater efficiency that results in an improved data package for our customer, which is not possible with traditional paper-based methods”.
