Inventory and supply chain management software (MRO software) is one of the most effective ways for an MRO to run its business. Well-designed MRO software tracks every aspect of the enterprise from parts ordered, received and inventoried to parts used, work done, and invoices issued.


Add in regulatory compliance-tracking and parts traceability when FAA recalls occur, and MRO software pretty much does it all. This is why MROs large and small view MRO software as an important investment, one that saves them money through increase productivity, lower inventory costs and better-served, happier customers. A case in point: AvFab Aviation Fabricators (www.avfab.com) designs and produces interior parts for corporate aircraft. With more than 100 STC’d products and many more PMA parts in its catalog, AvFab relies on MRO software to keep its manufacturing and inventory costs under control.


“High-quality merchandise, industry-low lead times, and value- oriented ideas are the essence of our existence,” says AvFab spokesperson G.R. Lowe. By using MRO software, AvFab has been able to create an integrated end-to-end platform for managing the sale, exchange and restocking of OEM/PMA parts; generating savings that the company passes onto its customers. In search of such savings, Aviation Maintenance reached out to the world’s leading MRO software suppliers and related companies. Here’s what they had to tell us—and MROs in general— about what they have to offer. Since our space is limited, what follows is the briefest of descriptions. We encourage you to check out their websites for more information.


Component Control (www.componentcontrol.com) Quantum Control—Aviation MRO and logistics software from Component Control—is a fully integrated platform that handles MRO, Aircraft Services, Hangar Management and Manufacturing capabilities; Contact Management, Distribution and Rotable Management, Accounting, and E-commerce. “The MRO market requires highly specialized tools that


are used in a very regulated industry,” says Z Bar-on, CEO of Component Control. “Quantum Control deals with this not only by providing inventory and supply chain modules, but also the capability to manage your infrastructure and connect to useful IT resources for tracking and ordering parts on the Web.”


Worth noting: Component Control recently won the ‘Best IT Software Provider’ category at the 2012 ATE&M Awards in London. The company won this award based on several thousand votes cast by those in the aviation industry.
