Honeywell has introduced a new online tool to help airlines better manage maintenance to reduce aircraft downtime and increase operational efficiency. The Performance Accelerator is an interactive and customizable catalogue of Honeywell service bulletins and upgrade options. It’s a one-stop resource for airline fleet management and includes full 3-D renderings of the 20 most widely used commercial aircraft platforms, with up-to-date information specific to each aircraft.
Honeywell’s Performance Accelerator helps airlines calculate potential fuel, maintenance, operational and safety cost savings from service bulletin incorporation, as well as from new modifications and upgrades. The interactive online tool was designed to be accessible and easy to use for everyone at an airline. It includes an intuitive search function and a user-friendly interface so that employees across a variety of departments, including engineering, maintenance, supply chain and flight operations can easily navigate the system.
“Our customers told us that they wanted a faster and more efficient system to find and evaluate service bulletins and upgrades. Honeywell’s Performance Accelerator was developed specifically with those considerations in mind and offers airlines a personalized user experience,” said Kristin Guthrie, Vice President, Customer Experience, Honeywell Aerospace.
The Performance Accelerator replaces the previous “index-based” system that required users to scroll through long lists of service bulletins unless they knew the particular item’s name or number. The new tool enables users to see every bulletin associated with a particular aircraft type or search by maintenance check, Air Transport Association chapter, mandates, benefit category such as fuel efficiency, and downtime.
