Boeing recently introduced a digital records management capability to its Maintenance Performance Toolbox suite of products to optimize maintenance operations and reduce costs for airlines.

The Maintenance Performance Toolbox Records module provides an industry standard platform to manage scanned and digitally produced maintenance and flight records.

The new tool eliminates the operational challenge of managing paper-based maintenance records, working in tandem with other Maintenance Performance Toolbox application solutions to increase efficiencies related to both day-to-day airline maintenance operations and the management of leased airplanes.

"Automation of the maintenance record-keeping process is a new and essential component of our Maintenance Performance Toolbox, and we are pleased to provide airlines with the foundation for establishing more efficient maintenance operations," said Per Norén, Boeing Digital Aviation vice president. "Our new records solution lowers costs related to daily records and the end of lease management, as well as eliminating redundant processes and reducing delays in aircraft maintenance processes. This new system truly allows airlines to unlock the potential of fleet-wide digital records management."

The records module creates intelligent digital maintenance documents featuring dynamic records search capabilities. The record-keeping tool also can improve airline maintenance workflow capabilities and tie into maintenance planning solutions, establishing systems that work in concert to further enhance the automation of processes and overall efficiency.

Simple access to the records module is provided through Boeing’s Maintenance Performance Toolbox application. Boeing also offers access to records management capabilities for non-Toolbox customers through AerData's digital aircraft records application.
