The Beginning of ATP’s SIA Engineering Company Limited Collaboration
The Singapore Airshow was the perfect backdrop for the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding that marks an agreement of collaboration between ATP Software Solutions and SIA Engineering Company Limited (SIAEC), a major provider of MRO services in Asia-Pacific, and a wholly-owned subsidiary company of Singapore Airlines. Under the agreement, our two companies will collaborate in the field of data analytics, and explore areas of research, development and commercialization of advanced diagnostic software for use in the aviation industry. SIAEC’s airline customers will benefit because this agreement enables us to jointly deliver solutions that will improve the accuracy of fault isolation and corrective actions through the use of analytics.
About ATP’s Software Solutions
Given our experience in developing and providing integrated diagnostic and troubleshooting software solutions, ATP Software Solutions is an ideal partner for this project with SIAEC. In 2017, SIAEC began using our ChronicX® solution to increase aircraft availability and improve repair efficiency. ATP Software Solutions’ SpotLight® advanced diagnostic software streamlines the troubleshooting process and reduces aircraft maintenance downtime and component removal costs. The key to ATP Software Solutions’ guided diagnostic software is that it employs “hybrid reasoning,” a core technology that combines engineering knowledge with field experience to pinpoint post-production faults, reduce troubleshooting time, and boost the availability of equipment.
ATP Software Solutions is tremendously excited to build solutions for SIAEC and its customers. With its client base of more than 80 international carriers and aerospace equipment manufacturers, SIAEC provides line maintenance services at 37 airports in 8 countries, as well as airframe and component services on some of the most advanced and widely used commercial aircraft in the world. This joint agreement is a positive development, not only for ATP but also for the entire southeast Asian aviation MRO industry.
The Singapore Air Show is always an important forum to meet with members of the aviation industry and many of our customers. The ATP team especially enjoyed the up-close tours we received of several aircraft models that benefit from our technologies, including Bombardier’s C-Series aircraft and Lockheed Martin’s F-35 Joint Strike Fighter.
