IoT deployments are bringing new efficiencies to the civil aviation industry, especially the aircraft maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) space.
Much speculation has gone into the importance and benefits of the Internet of Things (IoT) and how it can impact how we live and work. As the debate rages on regarding IoT’s potential impact, various industries have already seen many opportunities with the IoT.
Civil aviation for one has positively benefited from the application of the IoT. IoT maximizes efficiency across the industry; from organizing tools to machines and people. And with an industry as asset-intensive as civil aviation, there’s no doubt that the IoT will continue to benefit the civil aviation industry.
One of the key ways to understand just how the IoT is augmenting the civil aviation industry is by examining its impact on the Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul (MRO) industry. The inclusion of the IoT to aspects of the MRO industry has created improvements in operational efficiency, proficiency, and profitability. It has also optimized time to market and customer delivery.
