Japan Airlines implements new ERP system

IBM Japan, IBM Business Consulting Services, and SAP Japan collaborate for the project

By CBR Staff Writer

Japan Airlines International has officially launched JAL Mighty, a new enterprise resource planning system for aviation maintenance. IBM Japan, IBM Business Consulting Services, and SAP Japan have collaborated on the project to create a system to manage maintenance planning, quality control and parts inventory for approximately 160 aircraft, 460 engines, and 500,000 parts.

According to the airline, the new enterprise resource planning (ERP) system is equipped with 19 SAP modules to serve approximately 6,000 users including aircraft mechanics.

The new SAP ERP system integrates approximately 100 business systems for maintenance planning, quality control and parts inventory for aircraft, as well as qualification management of aircraft mechanics into one SAP ERP package to realize business processes standardization and real-time information sharing.

As a result, operational complexity due to multiple maintenance systems and separate data management is reduced, and management processes of maintenance planning, quality control of aircraft parts inventory are streamlined while improving safety in the air, Japan Airlines (JAL) said.

In order to minimize technical risks and to prevent issues, this project also adopted SAP MaxAttention, the implementation support service provided by SAP, which was created by a global team of experts including during the design phase developers from SAP’s headquarters in Germany.
