New online engine maintenance management service BOOST enters into service
Turbomeca is pleased to announce the entry into service of BOOST, its new online engine maintenance management service. BOOST (Bank Of Online Services & Technologies) is a highly secured, web-based application developed in association with IBM. With BOOST, Turbomeca-powered helicopter operators will access real-time, personalized engine data to enrich their own fleet maintenance management, with the direct support of Turbomeca teams, 24/7.
BOOST is being deployed among several customers like Heli-Union, HeliDax, Helicopters Italia and Advanced Helicopter Services, and contributes to the airworthiness and availability requirements of their helicopter fleet. Bristow Helicopters Ltd will also join the program this year. A major milestone will be achieved in June 2016 when a first customer will go 100% paperless and fully manage their engines through BOOST solely with the e-engine logbook.
BOOST adds considerable value to the customers with the full integration of three key features:
- The Electronic Engine Logbook
- The Electronic Technical Publications
- The Electronic Configuration Manager.
The Electronic Engine Logbook is directly linked to the Interactive Electronic Technical Publications tailored to the configuration of each customer's engines and an Electronic Configuration Manager to track technical upgrades and modifications.
"Turbomeca is first aero engine manufacturer to propose such high level of features integration in an online engine support application. The engine logbook is like a health record. Having it online, fully integrated with the technical publication and the configuration manager will help to manage engine maintenance more efficiently. It brings significant value-added benefits to Turbomeca engine operators", said Turbomeca Executive Vice President Support and Services, Franck Saudo.
Hosted on an IBM online secured-database, which integrates a digital signature system, BOOST also benefits from the expertise of industry-leaders in the protection of sensitive data and sustainable solutions.
