Panel Discussion: Ensuring Efficiency in Engine Shop Visits Dual Focus: Supply chain and Workforce

  • Thursday, January 27, 2022:2:05 PM - 2:45 PM


There are multiple factors which have the potential to cause bottlenecks in shop visit schedules, but two of the most prevalent are unreliable supply chains and workforce considerations. Taking each of these in turn, what are the strategies and measures that MROs must employ to reduce the disruption to their workflows and keep industry moving? What supply chains flows must be developed to ensure operational efficiency? And what training and personal development programmes can ensure a stable, well trained workforce as MRO demand increases?
