Speach helps companies in the aeronautics sector to optimize their competitiveness through the cost-delivery-quality triptych. With Speach, business experts can easily share their expertise across the enterprise by creating immersive video instructions.
According to the International Air Transport Association (IATA), MRO (Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul) accounts for over 10% of airline operational costs globally. This spending is expected to increase by more than $ 30 billion over the next decade.
In the aerospace industry, it is better to anticipate the failure before it occurs. A plane on the ground can represent a huge financial burden on an airline. AOGs (aircraft on ground) can cost up to 136,000 euros per hour. To face these challenges, the aeronautics industry is increasing preventive and even predictive maintenance operations.
With Speach, MRO technicians can quickly create, share and view immersive and interactive videos on tablet or smartphone to speed up repairs. By viewing machine-specific video instructions in the field, operators can more quickly detect the source of faults or anticipate certain problems. Speach dramatically reduces maintenance costs and machine downtime.
Reducing non-quality is a major challenge for the aeronautics sector, directly linked to regulatory constraints. Quality can be improved by assisting the operator with immersive video instructions. In the aerospace industry, the volume of documents to manage is often considerable. In France, at some machining or assembly sites, operators can spend up to 25% of their time filling out paper documentation.
The speach is easy to use and quick to create. It reduces the time spent processing and reading documentation. In the aeronautics sector, the parts to be managed are often complex, because of the recurring small series. The speach helps operators manage this complexity by sending them digitized instructions corresponding to the reference to be processed. It also speeds up the training of an operator on a machine and a reference.
Safety is another major issue in the sector. Immersive video instructions can contribute to prevention and awareness on site with testimonials from operators or best practices to adopt to avoid workplace accidents. The accident feedback in the form of video makes the message more emotional and therefore more impactful than a simple paper display. The speach also makes it possible to show the real environment with the sound of the machines which is sometimes an indicator for performing the manipulation properly.
Many aviation mechanics experts are on the cusp of retirement and need to be replaced by a new generation of engineers and mechanics. This wave of retirements comes as the industry prepares to welcome a larger, newer and more technologically advanced fleet. The fleet of commercial airlines should indeed grow from 25,000 aircraft in 2017 to more than 35,000 by 2027. 58% of the fleet will then be made up of new generation aircraft. Mechanics will need to have the skills to work not only on the latest airplanes, but also those that have been flying for 20 years.
Industries in the aeronautical sector are investing in advanced maintenance technologies (preventive or even predictive). As a result, they must train their employees and recruit new talent.
In addition to promoting the transfer of knowledge between generations, industries in the aeronautical sector are faced with a high turnover rate. It is therefore necessary to train temporary workers quickly and well. Indeed, these are present for a short time, which takes time for trainers and represents a considerable cost for the company.
Training, recruitment and the transfer of knowledge between employees will therefore become critical in the coming years given the ramp-up of production, the lack of skills and the lack of attractiveness of the sector.
“Thanks to Speach, we are bringing more value to our training programs. In addition, we are putting forward our company’s greatest assets: our employees who are sharing their knowledge. Speach allows us to deliver training through brief, interactive video tutorials.”
Nadine Coëdel, Head of Skills Management
Provide extensive training in the technical skills and operational excellence required by Airbus.
Creation of tutorials on complex operations causing customer dissatisfaction.
Airbus has reduced its non-quality costs by 76% and has a better profitability rate.
An all-in-one solution
It all starts with a video. Employees can upload an existing video or create one using their webcam or the dedicated Speach Studio mobile app. Then, other media can be combined with the video (slides, PDFs, quizzes etc.).
Organize the content into different sections and complement it with annotations, audio or video commentary, voice-over etc.
With the iOs and Android applications, employees can access speachs when they need them directly from their workplace, even without an internet connection. Speachs can be shared via a link or a QR-code and are integrated directly into your existing environments: social networks, intranet, application, LMS…
Print the automatically generated QR code and display it on site, directly on equipment or machines, for easy access to the speach from the field.
Synchronize your documents with your audio or video comments for a more engaging and interactive presentation.
Enrich your videos with text, images, arrows, links or zones to gain clarity and precision
