Indonesian maintenance provider GMF AeroAsia has signed a long-term agreement with Satair for its Airbus Managed Inventory (AMI) and Just In Time (JIT) services covering both expendable and consumable parts.
Under the terms of the contract, GMF AeroAsia will utilise Satair, an Airbus component logistics subsidiary and its AMI solution which optimizes inventory management and aims for high-usage and non-repairable parts are automatically replenished.
Copenhagen-headquartered Satair said the AMI program also guarantees parts availability and decreases inventory stock and surplus levels.
Marking the first time the AMI and JIT services have been combined, Satair said the unified offering will give comprehensive coverage of both consumables and expendables.
Paul Lochab, chief commercial officer of Satair Group, said: “We are confident that the combination of AMI and JIT will prove to be just the right tools to support inventory planning, reduce priority orders and allow GMF AeroAsia to streamline administration for a large range of frequently moving consumables and expendables.”
