DIGITAL TWINNING: Advanced Aviation Software of 2023

Maintaining an aircraft is laborious and managing a fleet is even more challenging. Plane design requires intricate engineering of parts and design. Their equally complex systems are vital to keep the aircraft safe and aloft. 

In recent years, airlines, airports, and other aviation organizations have turned to maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) optimization software to make the job of keeping airplanes in peak condition easier and foolproof.

MRO software compiles data from dozens of different sources and uses complex algorithms to deliver analytics on aircraft maintenance schedules to airport operation teams. This software also incorporates artificial intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things (IoT) technologies to provide real-time, actionable insights on the status of aircraft. The technology provides the best automation of tasks to keep airplanes running efficiently.

Why Digital Twins Technology Is Important to the Aviation and Aerospace Sector

Digital twin aircrafts are digital replicas of real-world environments. These advanced computing environments resemble engineering technical drawings or drafting. Digital twin technology is being used by a variety of different industries and in recent years, airports have embraced digital twinning as an effective tool for keeping track of airplane operations by documenting wear and tear simulations using sensors in real-time.

Using IoT sensors and artificial intelligence, airport digital twins provide aircraft maintenance technicians (AMT) with comprehensive, maintenance assessments in real-time. Digital twin software provides life data to mechanics and aircraft manufacturers.

As several airlines have been faced with the dilemma to retire aircrafts, many have opted for major repairs. Having the ability to monitor performance of brand new aircrafts and the overall performance of replacement parts is important.

Data sets are based upon the precise moment of successful usage through event management to moment of failure. Analysis of the data called Weibull distribution, provides the avionic sector with statistics for preventive measures. The usage of Weibull analysis software specifically captures “event data” to modify maintenance schedules, parts-replacement and plane services.

The importance of twinning is critical to both, the safety and the efficiency of airline carriers. Incorporating digital twin software technologies into MRO systems will increase productivity for technical teams at SMB and enterprise-size airline companies.

This modern aviation maintenance software provides mechanical technicians with detailed information about the aircraft. Digital twin monitoring development provides aircrafts with preventative events-analysis information similar to those readily available to other mechanical engineering sectors before issues occur.

This is the most critical aviation software development solution available in the industry. It could save time, money and save lives.

Integration of Digital Twins Software to Modern Fly-By-Wire Systems

All modern aircrafts operate on “fly-by-wire” principles, which means that they are automated whenever possible to exclude human error. A variety of sensors keep track of in-flight operations.

Using IoT, fly-by-wire sensors can feed information into central data systems. This software solution provides aircrafts with necessary maintenance solutions and detailed information of in-flight mechanics and potential MRO needs.

Aircraft line maintenance solutions are evolving. Determining which types of maintenance is required during limited timeframes and task execution has always been a major challenge for the aviation industry. Today’s cutting-edge aviation maintenance software solutions make aircraft maintenance management easy with digital twin software integration.

Digital twin platforms are customized to provide the most advanced aviation software development solutions available on the market in the 21st century. Aviation’s original equipment manufacturers (OEM) are adapting the technology to address compliance issues. As systems become more dependent upon electrical automation factors such as Combined Vision Systems (CVS) and Flight Instrument Systems (EFIS), this advanced technology becomes critical.

Mobile MRO Software and Aircraft Digital Twin Development

Sensors provide real-time data using artificial intelligence and IoT communication transmissions. Often, aircraft line maintenance crews are pressed for time. Digital twin enables data driven analysis for machine learning automation.

Airline mechanics and manufactures are able to monitor and capture information to replicate the exact issues that need to be addressed without needing to perform thorough inspections. Line maintenance logs are automated for service ticket generation using diagnostic analytics built into airlines MRO apps and platforms.

Digital twin software and sensors provide for event-based data recordings and are priceless because they eliminate the need for manual intervention. Maintenance of an aircraft requires multiple levels of experienced technicians. Top-of-the-line MRO software also makes it easy to provide efficient work schedules for maintenance crews.

Projection data enables maintenance teams to schedule mechanics and plan accordingly for base maintenance to be performed during times when aircrafts are temporarily out of commission or during the turnaround time that aircraft experience between flights.

Paramount Group Launches Young Engineers Development Programme

Paramount Group, the global aerospace and technology company, announced the launch of a unique engineering mentorship and training program, aimed at fast tracking young engineers by equipping them with the skills and experience required to excel in the workplace, while ensuring a sustainable talent pool for its current and future skills requirements.

Bridging the gap between university and the workplace, the 18 month-long Young Engineers Development Program [YEDP] will immerse and rotate engineers across all of Paramount’s manufacturing businesses, exposing them to world-leading technologies and innovations in the land, sea and air domains. Through a rigorous selection process, a group of nine recently graduated engineers were selected from a shortlist of 103 candidates, following more than 800 applications received from across South Africa.

Martie Baumgardt, Group HR Director of Paramount Group stated: “Paramount has a wide range of capabilities, allowing these young engineers to be mentored by experienced engineering teams based at our various innovation centers, naval shipyards, and our land systems and aerospace factories.  The blended training will combine traditional classroom training with on-line learning, practical projects, solving real-world complex problems, assignments and case studies, and seminars by external thought leaders and experts in their fields.
