Write an argumentative/persuasive essay on how these new technologies will considerably impact the Airline MRO industry from a business and societal point of view.
Some airline MRO industries use automated aircraft inspections with drones/robots, dent checkers, wearables and augmented reality technologies, blockchain technology, 3D printing technologies, etc. The main objective is to reduce aircraft downtime for inspection and repair, improve quality, reduce human error, and enhance security and sustainability. Although these organisations have demonstrated the proof of concept of these new technologies in operations and training, the wide use of these new technologies across the airline MRO industry has not yet been seen. The reasons behind this are the potential barriers such as lack of clarity of implementation costs, return on investment in support of business cases and human factors considerations, including cultural issues.
Write an argumentative/persuasive essay on how these new technologies will considerably impact the Airline MRO industry from a business and societal point of view. Develop your arguments and position, and mention which technologies may have the widest impact and are likely to be implemented across the industry, possibly setting the new norms considering potential barriers and how they can be mitigated
Commercial aircraft maintenance:
Type of maintenance: line maintenance, heavy base maintenance and workshops(component maintenance).
Drone inspection in airport (line maintenance) not possible due to restrictions/airport regulations, hence can be done in maintenance hangar.
Drone inspections against lightning strikes, bird strikes, hell storms damages. “Sworm” robot for rolls Royce engine. Robotic paint removal, paint application. Robotic NDT inspections.
Dent checker to detect dents, gouges, cracks.
Wearable technology: used for complex tasks and training purposes. Reduce maintenance error.
3D printing : new fabrication process to mitigate spare parts and equipment constraints and enhance cost effectiveness during aircraft maintenance.
Block chain technologies: for aircraft technical recods digitalizing, to be more secured against cyber
