Paperless inspection at Airbus Helicopters
Thanks to augmented reality and smart glasses, the gearbox inspection is paperless and seamlessly documented now.
By integrating Ubimax solutions and smart glasses into the assembly process, Airbus Helicopters has shortened the gearbox inspection time by 40%. The whole work process was streamlined through system integration, and a documentation process that works intuitively, user friendly and paperless. Due to the paperless abilities of using AR solutions, Airbus eradicated all paper work required at the inspection stage. In addition, the SAP integration meant 100% data reliability, through the digitized data there can be no manual input errors. By using the turnkey solution, that supports SAP and the hardware they chose, they were able to be self-sufficient and give themselves a competitive edge. This new process not only helped to improve production but the user experience and ergonomics for the workers. Airbus worked directly with the highly skilled staff to determine their needs and found a solution that they found useful. Airbus now paves the way for other aerospace companies to reinvent their maintenance processes by fully digitizing.
