OEMServices and D-SIMLAB Technologies Announce Long-Term Partnership for Optimization of Airbus A380 Spare Parts Support OEMServices, a Joint Venture of four major aerospace OEMs, and D-SIMLAB Technologies, a spin-off company from Singapore’s Agency for Science, Technology & Research (A*STAR) providing decision-support solutions for high-value asset management, have signed a 10-year contract for the optimization of spare part support services provided by OEMServices to airlines operating Airbus A380 aircraft.
Using a novel simulation-based, grid-enabled decision-support software, D-SIMLAB will regularly re-optimize the spare parts inventory allocation and the logistics policies within the continuously evolving network of destination airports served by OEMServices’ A380 customers.
This will help OEMServices guarantee just-in-time availability of spares not only at the airlines’ home airports but also at all their overseas destinations. “D-SIMLAB’s simulation-based spare parts optimization approach makes sure that the specific constraints arising from our tailor-made service contracts with different A380 operators are taken into account with sufficient accuracy.
This is absolutely critical for us since it allows us to ensure a high service level even at our customers’ outstations,” explained Jean-Noel Barrere, President of OEMServices. Added Peter Lendermann, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of D-SIMLAB, “A mutually agreed benefit-sharing scheme – for the first time applied with OEMServices – will always give us the incentive to do the very best for our customers and at all times helps them justify the investment in our high-tech based services.
We are confident that our engagement with OEMServices is also an excellent contribution to strengthening Singapore’s position as a hub for high-value added services in the aerospace sector.”
