Honeywell and Lufthansa Technik have announced an enhancement to their collaboration on Lufthansa Technik’s Aviatar digital platform, aimed at improving the customer experience in aviation analytics.
Honeywell Connected Maintenance analytics are now being fully integrated into Aviatar’s Predictive Health Analytics (PHA) suite, which will grow to more than 100 Predictors for multiple Airbus and Boeing aircraft types.
Building on the long-standing relationship between Honeywell and Lufthansa Technik, the companies said the new long-term agreement would be beneficial for aircraft operators on the journey to digital technical operations (Tech Ops).
“Together with Honeywell we are enhancing the digital excellence of Aviatar,” said Nikolaus Koerner, senior director commercial steering, digital fleet services at Lufthansa Technik. “The new offering creates a unique suite of predictive Tech Ops solutions, integrating world-class analytics in one true nose-to-tail product offering across many different ATA chapters and aircraft types. Airlines will benefit from a consistent user experience and access to the full range of analytics along with connections to the wide portfolio of solutions provided by our Digital Tech Ops Ecosystem, including AMOS and flydocs.”
“The collaboration between Honeywell and Lufthansa Technik combines decades of experience with aircraft maintenance and digital transformation,” said Karen Miller, general manager, Honeywell Connected Aerospace. “The resulting predictive analytics solution is designed to help airlines increase the availability of their aircraft and reduce costs associated with operations, flight delays and cancellations.”
Aviatar’s modular, open and neutral architecture has been developed to seamlessly interface to various IT systems operated by airlines and MROs around the world, a prerequisite for collaboration in aviation. The integration into Aviatar’s suite of digital Tech Ops solutions allows customers, for example, to take advantage of MRO management interfaces, automation and digitally enhanced MRO services.
