06 March 2024 | 10:35 - 11:05 | MRO: Are Supply Chain Challenges Opening the Door to Alternative Parts?
With supply chain challenges being cited as the number one industry concern, how can potential solutions be sought for these wide-ranging problems? Across the region there are mixed views to what is causing these issues but top amongst them is parts availability. This is of particular concern as it is affecting the operational availability of aircraft, delivery timelines and extends shop visit duration. Hear from industry leaders about whether this is changing attitudes to alternative parts, including options such as PMA or DER, which have previously been underutilised in the region. Is it also changing the dynamics on the repair vs replace conversation? What are OEMs doing to mitigate the effect of the supply chain challenges? Do OEMs need to alter their approach to parts supply?
