TP Aerospace ditches paperwork​ on in-house MRO shops

TP Aerospace has decided to ditch paperwork and implement paperless processes throughout their in-house MRO shops.

The new system enables digital sign-off of work orders, digital tasks lists, as well as increased efficiency through time optimisation and reduced risk of human errors. Finally, it brings improvements to quality controls and safety protocols. 

The initial phase of the paperless project began in 2018 along with the launch of the Green Sunrise strategy – an ambitious growth plan for increasing proximity to airline customers worldwide and provide the best possible wheel and brake support, wherever in the world their aircraft may be.

The Paperless System is a direct data entry method where no paper is needed on any work processes. It will replace the old barcode scanning system, where barcoding was needed on all tools and hardcopy work orders. With the new system, the number of procedures to be completed are linked to digital protocols. This provides a stronger quality control and reduces the risk of mistakes. 

Prashan Ambawatta, group technical director of TP Aerospace, said: “The implementation of the Paperless System is a strategic initiative supporting our Green Sunrise growth plan. We want to work smarter and be head of class on MRO processes. With the Paperless System, we have developed a modern and efficient method for easing the workflow, reducing risk of mistakes and ensuring the best possible service to our customers worldwide. And with the best people behind it, we are set to handle complex work orders, in a simple way.”

The new system has already been approved by several aviation authorities around the world, EASA, CASA, CAAM, and CAAT, along with other local authorities, who are expected to approve it later this year.
