Hawksland generate 20% man hour savings for Aircraft MRO facility

Hawksland’s client, a leading group of aerospace companies, commissioned Hawksland to conduct a health check on its underperforming AMRO and CMRO operations at its Aircraft Services Division.

The assignment entailed performing a detailed audit and health check of our clients’ underperforming USA & Asia aircraft MRO & CMRO facilities. Our report, led to Hawksland being requested to implement a phased improvement programme. Our approach focused on cultural & organisation changes in which we engaged one of our leading MRO experts on an Interim Magement basis to embed lean principles. Value stream mapping identified information & materials flow waste reduction which was subsequently streamlined. Additional activities we led were the revamping of the hangar; introduced 5S; visual;workplace; policy deployment; Kaizen events; leadership and team development.

As a consequence of the work undertaken we helped our client achieve 20% man-hour savings on the Asian aircraft MRO activities freeing capacity and better asset utilisation. The work performed at the clients USA CMRO activities led to $2.3m savings.
