In the airline industry, every second is measured. Small efficiency improvements can make big differences in operational performances. Because of this, the industry is using technology to move quicker, move more consistently and most importantly, move more safely.
Technological advances in aircraft have taken some manual, tedious work away from humans, resulting in fewer human errors, better quality control and stronger compliance factors. Taking the human out of these repetitive tasks allows humans to address the issues, focus on strategy or digest and analyze data that is collected through the planes and programs like AHEAD-Pro.
AHEAD-Pro is a program by Embraer that monitors trends of failures on the Embraer 175 and sends data after every single aircraft arrival. This data eliminates some of the guesswork by maintenance technicians and maintenance operations control professionals and enables them to dig right into the issue rather than spend time diagnosing it.
With a technology-advanced fleet like the Embraer 175 aircraft, data can be pulled for every aspect of the machine to be analyzed and translated into what continues to go right and where improvements can be made.
