We aim to achieve continuous development by combining Lean Management principles with the best practices in aviation. Lean implementation is a holistic approach that covers all production elements from strategy to production environment in the workshop. Implementing and adapting the concept of Lean to the aircraft maintenance process is not as simple as in the production facilities with fixed and standard production processes.An aircraft maintenance center produces a large amount of variability and wastage, similar to those in a rough installation / disassembly facility.It is quite difficult to identify processes with added value, but it is relatively easy to identify wastes.
Beyond the common usage, Lean Philosophy defines waste as something that the customer does not want to give in return and has no added value for the customer.
Lean focuses on reduction of eight wastes to improve overall customer value:
- Processing itself
- Defective Product
- Unused Creativity
By eliminating all kind of waste, costs are reduced in all phases of production, flexibility increases, customer satisfaction rises, and targeted revenues multiply. The MyTECHNIC organizational chart, designed primarily for the prevention of waste at the plant, is designed to allow technicians to work effectively. MyTECHNIC acknowledges that the most important responsibility is customer satisfaction. Therefore, an environment is designed in which all operators can focus on their work and create value for the customer . MyTECHNIC is the world’s first Lean Maintenance Center established from the strach , and it was designed with keeping in mind the Lean principles from the very beginning . The production system has emerged by combining the requirements of the aircraft maintenance industry and the appropriate elements of Lean principles. MyTECHNIC introduces its production system formed by the needs of the MRO business and our understanding of the LEAN Principles. MyTECHNIC will continuously work to improve its operations , search for ways to create more value for its customers.
