We would like to take this opportunity to give a warm goodbye to one of our fellow employees. Mick Rhodes – one of our most experienced AMOS consultants and supporter – is leaving us after more than 12 ½ years. Mick decided to retire and to spend his additional free time with his wife, his grandkids, his garden, his motor home etc. We at CrossConsense will miss the pleasurable experience of working with Mick.
Mick, we wish you all the best and thank you for your years of dedication, enthusiasm and team spirit.
Hi, my name is Chris and I am working as a maintenance manager. The problem I had working with an ETLB was, that I always needed to use either the master device or the spare device of the aircraft for which I had some work to do. But now, CROSSMOS® has a new feature. Whenever I am walking around in the hangar with my client device having CROSSMOS® installed, I have access to a list of aircraft within the signal range of my WiFi (Remember: It is a legal requirement that the master device with the ETLB stays on board). Now I can connect my device to the aircraft with which I want to start working. After having finished my work on that aircraft I can go to the next AC and start working on this one. It is also ensured that I always have the same software version as the master device so that data can be synchronized easily between the two devices, the ground server and the MRO backend system.
And the same is true for my colleagues from the cabin crew. They can use the client device as a personal device. This makes life much easier for them.
Since June, 1st 2017, Lufthansa CityLine has been a new CROSSMOS® customer and will start to implement the CROSSMOS® eTLB in its entire fleet of Bombardier and Embraer aircraft. Lufthansa CityLine has launched the project of integrating an eTLB in its fleet in order to contribute to the modernization of the processes and to increase the environmental performance both in flight operations and in technology. By implementing CROSSMOS®, Lufthansa CityLine is taking a further step towards digitization and process optimization within the Lufthansa Group.
As Lufthansa CityLine uses AMOS as its backend MRO system, the integration of CrossConsense’s electronic logbook is expected to be finished until the end of this year because the interface between CROSSMOS® and AMOS has been running successfully in other airlines for more than one year.
Lufthansa CityLine will use the pilot and maintenance modules of CROSSMOS® and users will be able to access CROSSMOS® from the EFB that is already in place.
Axel Trampnau, Head of Technical Fleet Management at Lufthansa CityLine, says: “We selected CROSSMOS because we need to rely on an uninterrupted process. It is so significant to digitize workflows and to share information with others. We will definitely not miss the traditional paper process once CROSSMOS will be implemented in our fleet. We look forward to realizing the full impact of the new digital solution.”
