In aircraft spare parts support predicting equals winning

With industry representatives becoming increasingly concerned about rising maintenance costs and downtime due to unscheduled breakdown of machinery, predictive maintenance solutions are gaining traction. For instance, most MRO respondents of the latest survey conducted by Oliver Wyman shared they are currently investing in new technologies that use data to make better decisions, especially related to spares support processes. In fact, reports claim that adopting predictive maintenance through the use of data analysis can reduce maintenance budgets by 30-40%. Yet ways of thinking and business processes also must change. 

Today airlines can perform predictive maintenance much more effectively because new aircraft yield more data, and the tools for exploiting it have improved dramatically.
