By joining forces with SWISS AS, we digitised our operations and achieved remarkable improvements in production efficiency. The integration of AMOS Mobile also played an instrumental role in making this happen.
We have been equally successful in introducing the Airbus Operating System, which has provided us with digital visual boards for SQCDP and PPC. This allows our teams to work with real-time data at all times, enabling them to gain a comprehensive overview of SAE’s operational performance on a daily basis.
Achieved Quality Gate 5 of Airbus Lean Management
Having aligned with Airbus standards, SAE has also adopted the OEM's Lean Management policies. Through the successful completion of Quality Gate 5, SAE is committed to the assurance of aircraft safety, compliance, and efficiency during maintenance. Quality gates are an integral component in maintaining top-notch standards of aircraft upkeep in the aviation sector.
Malaysia's First ‘Smart’ Radome Shop, AMOS Go Live
We celebrated a great accomplishment by opening Malaysia's first "smart" Radome Workshop for aircraft repair. It was equipped with three inspection rooms, a sanding area, two dedicated paint spray booths, a clean room, and an oven for paint curing and repair. We utilised digital and smart technologies to increase efficiency by taking advantage of the data generated by aircraft and software systems. Furthermore, in the same year, we unveiled our new MRO software solution, AMOS, which is designed to maximize SAE's productivity and cement its position as a leading MRO services provider in Southeast Asia.
