Communications Software’s OASES (Open Aviation Strategic Engineering System) is a maintenance repair and overhaul system with over 120 aviation customers. Nick Godwin told us how the tool is evolving.

Godwin said: “[Systems like ours] are doing a good job of regulatory compliance. They’re doing a fantastic job of reporting to the various stakeholders, which could be the owners, the lessors, the airlines, the airworthiness authorisers. What I see now is that data is being used to proactively manage situations. It’s also being used for economic optimization.”

He says in the future tools like OASES will play a key role in the accurate capture of data upfront for decision-making and economic optimization.
