easie, a leading provider of optimization software solutions, today announced the successful go-live of Maintenance Cards Interval Optimization solution at Turkish Technic, a Turkish Airlines affiliate that is one of the world’s leading maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) services providers. The implementation of the easie solution at Turkish Technic, which was carried out with implementation partner Deloitte and was completed in only five months, gives the MRO provider the capability to optimize its long-term maintenance plans, taking into account the individual characteristics of each aircraft such as age, type, and utilization as well as maintenance card constraints.
With easie, Turkish Technic is able to automatically generate optimal block and equalized maintenance plans – with a time horizon of up to 30 years – for individual aircraft or groups of aircraft that optimize the assignment of maintenance cards and minimize aircraft ground time and maintenance frequency, duration, and setup times.
easie also gives Turkish Technic’s planners full visibility over the maintenance planning process, the capability to dynamically revise their plans due to changing circumstances, and the ability to conduct “what-if” analysis and compare different scenarios based on their impact on the company’s KPIs.
Yasin Birinci, Turkish Technic’s Production Planning and Control Director, commented: “ After a fast and smooth implementation, easie’s MRO optimization solution is now live at Turkish Technic. With easie, we have a robust, integrated planning and decision support system that enables us to rapidly create optimal block and equalized maintenance plans for each aircraft and also empowers us to make the best decisions to maximize aircraft flight time and avoid the early application of maintenance cards. Although the solution was just recently deployed, we are already starting to see noticeable improvements to resource utilization, productivity, and costs.”
Z. Caner Taşkın, ICRON’s Chief Technology Officer, remarked: “ We are proud to announce that easie’s Interval Optimization of Maintenance Cards solution – a part of our comprehensive MRO Planning and Optimization solution – is now live at Turkish Technic, one the global leaders in MRO services. With easie, Turkish Technic’s planners are able to optimize their long-term maintenance cards interval planning and decision making processes, cope with the immense complexity and numerous constraints in their operational environment, and achieve increased efficiency and cost reductions.”
Özgür Yalta, Strategy and Operations Consulting Services Partner at Deloitte Turkey, commented: “ It was a pleasure working with easie on the roll out of the Maintenance Cards Interval Optimization solution at Turkish Technic. The short timeframe of the implementation and the success of the deployment are a testament to the power and flexibility of the easie solution and the strength and effectiveness of our partnership.”
