It reduced Maintenance Turnover Times at the UK-based 3rd Party Maintenance and Repair Organization.
Our Lean Consultation team has experience in the MRO industry across three continents. Recently we engaged with a UK-based 3rd Party Maintenance and Repair Organization, and after that, they reduced A Check turnaround times by 70%.

From planning and engineering to maintenance on the line and repair in the hangar, improving the value stream has been achieved by reviewing the flow from top to bottom – including reducing inventory and material holdings, shortening turnaround times for assets, and better margins.
