BOEING ANNOUNCES ROTABLE EXCHANGE SERVICE PROGRAM

Boeing has announced the availability of a rotable exchange services program to support the operation of the 787 Dreamliner. The program, the manufacturer says, will help airline customers reduce inventory costs by providing access to a Boeing-managed inventory pool of parts that is available to ship within 24 hours of request.

“The 787 Rotables Exchange Services Program will provide a dedicated pool of high-value, dispatch-critical parts for airlines, while helping them to improve operations support and cash flow,” says Dale Wilkinson, vice president, material services for Boeing Commercial Airplanes. “The program manages configuration, warranty and reliability for the covered parts, freeing the airline to focus on passengers and the operation of the airplane.”

The exchange program is available to support initial entry into service for 787 operators, which is the first time such a program has been developed in conjunction with a new fleet type. Under the program, the airline removes a part from the airplane and ships it for exchange with a new unit from Boeing’s exchange pool.

Boeing plans to support up to 600 high-value rotable parts, including such items as the Auxiliary Power Unit and Variable Frequency Starter Generator. By providing coverage for parts typically priced in the hundreds of thousands of dollars, Boeing says the exchange program can provide considerable inventory cost savings for airlines.
