Yutaka Takeuchi, staff director of engineering and maintenance at JAL, said: We evaluated technology solutions that would enable JAL to efficiently and securely cater to the Boeing recommended change processes for software on board the 787, and also cater to our workflows and systems landscape.

MKS Integrity was selected after a detailed workshop involving JAL technical staff and maintenance team, together with MKS engineers in Tokyo showed that MKS Integrity catered fully to all aspects of the requirement and that the flexibility of the MKS Integrity-based solution enables us to evolve forward at a lower cost than an in-house solution would have been.

That knowledge, together with engineering skill and the flexibility of MKS Integrity enabled us to shape the solution exactly to fit the JAL requirements.
