TegoAir Solutions:

Solution Brief and Use Cases

Time-intensive processes can drag down the entire commercial aviation ecosystem from manufacturers to airline crews to MRO personnel. When you introduce intelligent asset tracking, you can speed up inspections, streamline inventory management, and provide asset visibility where and when you need it.

Learn what happens when your assets can talk to you:

  • Tego gives flight and ground crew personnel a walk-through aircraft inspection and digital alert regarding the status of safety equipment and other cabin interior parts.
  • For MRO organizations, Tego provides a locally stored, digital, lifecycle history on the part itself for every aircraft presenting for maintenance.
  • For Airframe Manufacturers, Tego provides a solution for reliable, full digital inspection and verification during final assembly and delivery to customers

Tego CEO Tim Butler Featured in Aviation Week’s InsideMRO

“A smart-asset approach is about putting extensive digital product information and life-cycle history onto components themselves. Meaningful data simply becomes part of the things’ DNA, ripe to divulge wisdom everywhere they go across their entire life cycle.”

Tego’s CEO Tim Butler was a featured columnist in Aviation Week’s InsideMRO, discussing the mindset shift to the ‘things’ versus the ‘internet’ in ‘IoT,’ which simply must occur in order to bring about true digital transformation in aviation and MRO.

Tim likens the new mentality to the moment when companies realized that moving away from mainframe computing architecture to desktop PCs would liberate the the business to accomplish more than was ever thought possible.

That is a stunning consideration, when you really stop to think about it.

From the article:

Granting intelligence to an asset at its physical layer is a novel approach, a departure from typical IoT thinking that centers upon the “I” part of the IoT. It is our belief the focus has skewed too heavily toward connecting everything with a sensor all the time, to send streaming information to a database or cloud repository or enterprise system. When this happens, the value proposition for the IoT tends to get lost amid concerns of conducting a large-scale, expensive system rollout. It can engender a “where do we start” mentality among fragmented operational teams already struggling to define time lines, returns-on-investment and ownership schemes for digital adoption. This predicament already is holding many airlines back from putting digital technologies into place, despite the vast potential they hold for value creation.

After each service or inspection, new maintenance information is added to the asset’s digital history, and it retains a permanent, progressive record for all workers with authorized permission to access and perform local analysis. This is done via a local smartphone and connected reader and enables faster, safer and more precise decision-making in the field. If need be, the field worker can sync the latest data record back to the enterprise systems of the airline operator, OEM, or third-party maintenance provider, providing thorough visibility into how a part is being used and its performance over time.

In short, every asset becomes a node of distributed intelligence, with data available at the point of need to guide maintenance, prompt compliance activity for life-limited parts, ensure the authenticity of parts, verify part performance and even provide maintenance instructions directly. The asset becomes so smart that employees asks it what needs to be done!

Intelligent Aerospace – The Transformational Effect of Asset Intelligence for MRO and FBO organizations

“The day will come when every serialized, repairable, replaceable and maintainable part — numbering 10,000 on a typical airframe, will carry its own data.”

Intelligent Aerospace magazine puts asset intelligence into context for aviation MRO organizations and Fixed-base Operators (FBOs).

From the article:

The product lifecycle visibility challenge is largely a product of limited information, and it can utterly hamstring maintenance processes. At best, products and components today may carry a serial number, a barcode, or perhaps a digital ID tag, but they often exclude the finer details about the product’s specifications, configuration, maintenance history, and usage that are so central to efficient operation, maintenance, and even regulatory compliance in many industries. Instead, this information is typically kept on paper logs, in centralized Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) systems, or in some cases nestled within the “tribal knowledge” of an experienced workforce.

Each of these modus operandi is complicated, expensive to maintain, and has inherent limitations. Paper logs can get misplaced or become unreadable, and data within enterprise systems can erode during IT consolidation and upgrade cycles; worse yet, it can become inaccessible if workers are in remote locations or stationed at a third-party aviation maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) supplier. The factors contributing to “tribal knowledge” are hard to pinpoint and information is perpetually at risk, due to workforce churn. The end result: In many situations, MRO workers are left at the mercy of incomplete or non-existent product history information.

Intelligent Aerospace MRO for Smart Flyable Parts

Su Ahmad, Tego Customer Specialist, Presents Tego’s MRO Solution for Smart Flyable Parts at the eBusiness Forum, 2015

For the first time at an eBusiness forum, Su Ahmad presents Tego’s MRO solution for smart flyable parts developed both with and for B/E Aerospace. Tego’s Asset Intelligence Platform (AIP) enables smart RFID tracking by managing maintenance information (MRO) stored on airplane seats and is then linked to the B/E’s cloud based Component Maintenance Manual. The end-to-end solution enables the re-ordering of B/E’s spare parts directly from the airplane seat that requires a new part or component. Su demonstrates how smart asset data and information stored on the airplane seat serves as a platform not only for managing lifecycle information but for re-ordering spare parts directly from the manufacturer, as a means to prevent competitor’s parts from cannibalizing B/E’s aftermarket business.


Smart Asset Solutions for Aerospace: Embed and Track Data Directly on Aircraft Parts

Embedding data and documents directly into aircraft parts solves multiple common challenges and ensures easy compliance with industry standards. From part tracking and identification and readily available maintenance history to compliance and major savings in inspection processes, see how a smart asset solution can address your needs. Tego’s Asset Intelligence Platform (AIP) goes beyond the limitations of the aircraft maintenance tracking software by electronically capturing critical asset information and providing the following benefits:

  • Digital information is embedded on the part– allows the aircraft components to be identified with a degree of accuracy
  • Digital Part History Records– the data travels with the serviceable part wherever it goes, enabling the best repair for improved safety
  • Digitally enabled fast inspections– compliance with ATA Spec 2000, AS5678
  • The right data at the right fingertips– embedded data on aircraft parts delivers intelligence at the fingertips of the right person, resulting in process and labor accuracy, efficiencies and significant cost savings.

The Airbus Flyable Parts Program

In 2009, Airbus launched aerospace’s first digital traceability and visibility program dubbed “flyable parts”. Today there are over 3,000 parts on an Airbus airplane that have digital capabilities. By exploring the end-to-end benefits of the solution, it is easy to see why the project was fast-tracked.
