Creating a win-win for the military and commercial suppliers

Larger aircraft manufacturers are expanding their MRO operations and anticipating continued aggressive growth, creating a “one stop shop” that includes MRO for a set period when an aircraft is purchased.

This trend will have a major impact on the aftermarket and on independent MRO operations. However, it may also create new opportunities for independents to expand their service lines and seek out new partnerships and alliances.

This Maine Pointe perspectives paper for the aerospace industry discusses:

  • Why cross-functional supply chain collaboration is the key to unlocking trillions of dollars of revenue tied up in production
  • How independent MROs can compete against larger OEMs
  • Why leading aircraft manufacturers, commercial OEMs and the military are all harnessing the power of data analytics

Introduction

Larger aircraft manufacturers are expanding their MRO operations and anticipating continued aggressive growth, creating a “one stop shop” that includes MRO for a set period when an aircraft is purchased. This trend will have a major impact on the aftermarket and on independent MRO operations. However, it may also create new opportunities for independents to expand their service lines and seek out new partnerships and alliances.

Both commercial and military aircraft OEMs are moving to create a full “nose to tail” solution. In this new hyper-competitive environment, MRO companies are under pressure to become more competitive productive and efficient, and to accelerate maintenance. These MRO firms can effectively compete with OEM MRO groups with a new, Total Value Optimization™ approach.

Maine Pointe’s TVO approach is used in both military and commercial aircraft sectors to reduce the total number of MRO flow day required to bring aircraft into total service capability. Independent MRO organizations are seeing new opportunities to fulfill this pressing need, even in the face of competition from OEMs, with new strategies.
