Advanced MRO Planning and Scheduling Webinar

ICRON Technologies, a leading developer of Advanced Planning and Scheduling solutions since 1992, has been in Aerospace MRO (Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul) optimization for more than a decade and shares its experience in this area in this webinar below.

In this webinar, you will discover how a next generation MRO planning and scheduling solution can improve your MRO activities and KPIs such as TRT times, overtime and productivity.

See below for a detailed description of the topic :


Modern facilities are text book cases of complex production environments :
  • 100% Make-to-order
  • Capital-intensive production processes
  • High product mix, large number of components or production tasks
  • frequent schedule changes
Planning and scheduling of thousands or tens of thousands of repair operations w.r.t tight physical resources, regulations, certifications, spare parts, etc. in this environment is a very difficult job. Frequent rescheduling due to post strip/inspection repair needs, unplanned Aircraft On Ground (AOG) repairs and part cannibalization, machine breakdowns, spare part unavailability's, certified personnel absence, etc. also makes planning more complex. More over, MRO plan, shop floor execution data and ERP data are not blended and visualized so the shop floor is a black box so the environment is pretty much a black box.

Current ERP systems also do not help a lot when it comes to planning and scheduling. Most ERPs in MRO are originally developed for mass production, old fashion manufacturing. They assume capacity problems are solved in advance and they plan as if the environment has infinite capacity.

One of ICRON's biggest feature is Finite Capacity Planning and Optimization. Better planning and sequencing w.r.t all your constraints will produce better and more realistic results. With finite capacity planning, ICRON ensures that you know any bottle neck and lateness due to these bottlenecks so you can take action.
