Transforming aviation: The power of lifecycle assessment for aircraft parts

Lifecycle Optimization for Aerospace is a turning point. It shows what digital transformation can do, providing positive impact in areas across the value chain and beyond the bottom line, and driving  circular economy and sustainability in aviation.

An airplane flies not only with parts but also with paperwork—the countless documents, records, and certifications that ensure its safety and compliance with government regulations. The process of tracing aircraft parts remains outdated and anchored in paperwork. The Lifecycle Optimization for Aerospace platform aims to address the need for digitized aircraft and parts maintenance history by automating the inspection process. The platform enables digital transformation, digitally securing the collection of historical information and documentation that will increase the potential re-use of each part of an aircraft and help the aerospace ecosystem to collaborate and improve worldwide utilization of existing products.

Airline digital transformation is the need of the hour. New generation aircraft require less paperwork if tracked in one system, but documentation of previous generation aircraft remains stored on paper. Airline digital transformation is the need of the hour. That is why Capgemini and Amazon Web Services (AWS) launched the Lifecycle Optimization for Aerospace platform designed to accelerate the adoption of circular economy practices in the aviation industry, optimize the lifecycle analysis of aircraft parts, and guide decisions to extend their lifespan.

The platform aims to …

  • Simplify inspection and airworthiness review while ensuring complete traceability documentation.
  • Maximize the lifespan of parts and enhance their potential for resale or reuse.
  • Structure operations and maintenance history for analytics purposes, focusing on predictive maintenance capabilities.
  • Enhance the value chain through digital transformation, thus driving sustainability in aviation.

With Lifecycle Optimization for Aerospace, we aim to make the most of digital transformation, getting us one step closer to green aviation and a sustainable, efficient, and profitable future.

Capgemini is excited to participate in Farnborough International Airshow, being held this July.

To learn more on the topic, visit the Capgemini booth at the Farnborough International Airshow, in Farnborough, UK, on July 22-24.
