Aviation MRO tracing using Blockchain for UK-based airlines.
— Written by
Our client, a vendor for a large airline company in the UK, was facing difficulties tracing the components (including life-limited parts) and their history. They wanted to develop an end-to-end system to track all the components and to utilize the recent technology to bring transparency into the system. Read on to know how Skcript solved their problem.
Blockchain Technology enables end-to-end component lifecycle visibility, trusted data exchange across internal and external MRO (Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul) stakeholders, and unified operational efficiency across the MRO Value Chain. This results in decreased risk, decreased turnaround time, and cost savings for the entire industry.

How Skcript solved the problem?
Skcript developed an end-to-end supply chain management system for tracking the source of the raw materials to enhance the reliability of the parts for the airline company using the parts in their aircraft.
MRO is a high cost for a company. Most industries still manually record MRO data. Blockchain will not only bring transparency into the system but will help companies better track maintenance data. It will also help in better analytics for the calculation of a product’s life cycle and will provide improved insights to MRO companies.
The greater the blockchain-MRO integration, the more the industry will see the extensive use of blockchain in tracking critical supply chain parameters, component Quality, asset maintenance, preventing counterfeit products, and enhancing digital marketplaces.
