Aeroman, an El Salvador based Maintenance Repair and Overhaul (MRO) operation, is celebrating its first successful year of operating the Airbus Managed Inventory (AMI) service. AMI ensures the optimised replenishment of high-usage, non-repairable parts at the customers’ facilities, guaranteeing parts availability and decreasing inventory stock levels.
With a modern facility located in El Salvador International Airport, Aeroman provides maintenance services to A320 Family operators from the United States, Mexico, Central and South America. After only one year of implementing the AMI service, Aeroman is already looking at expanding the scope of the service.
“By utilizing the AMI service, Aeroman has streamlined its supply chain, cut down administrative cost and created a better order flow for our customers,” said Bosco Rico, Supply Chain Director at Aeroman. “We have managed to reduce critical ad hoc orders and optimized our inventory planning to the benefit of our customers. With AMI we have enhanced the availability of parts resulting in the reduction of material shortages and aircraft downtime. This is a key factor in offering first-class maintenance services.”
According to Didier Lux, Executive Vice President of Customer Service at Airbus, “Airbus provides the best possible maintenance and customized supply-chain solutions to our customers, Airbus Managed Inventory (AMI) is a prime example. The aircraft industry requires the utmost attention to detail in logistics and inventories and AMI has taken that to a new level. We are happy to celebrate Aeroman’s first year of AMI operation and look forward to our continued collaboration.”
With 2,400 employees in El Salvador, Central America, Aeroman has been providing world-class heavy maintenance repairs and avionics and interiors modification programs for over 30 years.
