AFI KLM E&M and Ramco Systems start operations at The MRO Lab, Singapore

AFI KLM E&M has announced that its new innovation centre, The MRO Lab Singapore, is now on stream. The opening of the new entity comes a year after the launch of the “MRO Lab – Adaptive Innovations” program, through which AFI KLM E&M is pursuing its aim of developing an extensive, high-performance R&D network to support its business and MRO services.

Located in the centre of Singapore and staffed by locally-recruited experts, the R&D centre is set up in conjunction with Ramco Systems and supported by the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB). The MRO Lab Singapore’s research activity focuses on strategic areas of the MRO sector, ranging from technician mobility to customer experience, internet of things, Big Data applications, predictive maintenance, to artificial intelligence.

Franck Terner, EVP AIR FRANCE KLM Engineering & Maintenance welcomed the opening of the centre, saying: “We are proud to extend our R&D capability and anchor it in the heart of Singapore, one of the world’s greatest innovation platforms. In being able to benefit from the combined expertise of two acknowledged MRO sector players, the MRO Lab Singapore will be able to offer in very short order innovative solutions that are likely to deliver real benefits to our clients.”
