Armac’s MRO inventory planning and optimization solution has been designed specifically to support the requirements of rotable, repairable and consumable inventory of airlines and MROs.
In our work with customers in the aviation sector, we recognised a need for a solution which, in addition to determining the optimal stock levels, would enable policy enforcement through to on-the-ground operations. Our MRO Inventory Planning Workbench bridges this gap by empowering planners to incorporate operational knowledge and rules so that they can make better informed decisions. The result is a world-class MRO inventory planning solution that delivers superior asset management capability, greatly improved cashflow, increased profitability, plus excellent management control.
The benefits gained from the using the solution are proven within aviation.
