Aircraft Maintenance Staff Scheduling for Line and Base Maintenance Operations
Planning maintenance staff and resources is a complex task. In line maintenance, not all workload can be estimated in advance and in base maintenance, space, skilled staff and equipment are limited resources. A maintenance operator's profitability depends on how well they balance their resources with the actual work to carry out, while facing the unpredictability of airline operations. Today, both airline and independent MRO organizations compete to offer their line maintenance services. Those who achieve a high level of reliability, quality and productivity will benefit greatly from this growing market.
