Since most Aviation Maintenance Repair Service Providers specialize in the specific capabilities they provide, in can be beneficial to find a professional management company who can provide data for evidence-based decisions. Prospective maintenance service providers should look for the type and qualifications of the service provider they require—an FAA Repair Station Licensed maintenance service provider or an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) designated service center.
Among the most common differentiations among MRO providers are the certifications and capabilities among airframes. While many may service various types of aviation activity, few have a proven track record through managing MRO services through varying cycles of economic activity.
There are some basic supply chain management best practices which are extended to aviation. The first is the concept of “flow down”, meaning that a prime supplier to a large customer should extend the same contractual provisions in his contract to those of his suppliers. The second is that of supplier surveillance, meaning that a supplier is managed to perform to the terms of their contract.
These are the key concepts around Aviation MRO Management services; however, each management company has it own focus and goals.
