From facsimile to big data. Skywise at Smartlynx
Aviation companies are constantly generating and processing huge amounts of data that are created in a flight cycle. Data are received from aircraft sensors, crew reports and logs, from maintenance information system, Flight Ops and financial systems, electronic technical log etc. Each category of data comes at company's disposal in a different way, often in different format and is stored by different methods.
“Skywise” is analytic tool that gathers and models all related information in a single platform, providing an accurate and unified view of the processes involved in aircraft operations. This platform is collecting data from more than 8000 Airbus aircraft and more than 90 airlines worldwide. In addition, it allows to customize information workflows according to operators’ needs.
“Reaching new limits in streamlining of daily procedures is a challenge that is faced by everyone in the aviation industry. It is a fundamental need to remain competitive in today's situation. With “Skywise” we can keep track of real-time aircraft utilisation, calculate and plan various flight related cycles. “Skywise” educates us on our planes, procedures and our partners on a new level. It helps to understand the general logic of specific stages of service delivery. And by that we gain effective control over processes,” says Anders Ludvigsson, a Board Member and Vice President of Operations at SmartLynx Airlines.
According to Ludvigsson, “Skywise” is providing the company with valuable information that helps to identify and optimize processes that are inefficient, time consuming and expensive.
The “Skywise” platform can also provide data related to time requirements at various stages of flight preparation, potential risks leading to delayed flights, comparison of performance in specific situations, aircraft maintenance and many other important insights. In addition, this system creates an accurate and detailed process history that enables companies to predict various scenarios and develop more efficient solutions.
