Leading aircraft engine manufacturer Rolls-Royce chose Software as a Service (SaaS) platform EngineData.io to enable automated communications between airline maintenance information systems and its digitally enhanced services. QOCO, EngineData.io’s developer, will be responsible for rolling out the solution to all Rolls-Royce customer airlines and providing production support services for business-critical data exchange.

The Rolls-Royce–QOCO Systems Story

Rolls-Royce launched the Rolls-Royce Blue Data Thread digitalisation program to provide customers a comprehensive solution that answers the need for maintenance data exchange with thousands of aircraft powered by Trent engines.

The Rolls-Royce–QOCO partnership began in 2018 when Rolls-Royce chose QOCO to accelerate its global digitalisation initiative. QOCO’s deep industry expertise, delivery capability of robust data exchange solutions for airlines and state-of-the-art proven solution EngineData.io made it a prime candidate to become Rolls-Royce’s strategic partner.

Nick Ward, VP Digital Systems at Rolls-Royce said ”Our customers share data with us so that we can provide the best possible service outcomes. With accurate, timely data we can treat every engine as an individual, helping our customers to achieve high engine availability and reliability while minimising maintenance. It’s part of our IntelligentEngine vision”.

Rolls-Royce and QOCO Collaboration: Successful Goal Achievement

As a result of the collaboration, QOCO enabled seamless data exchange between various ERP/MRO systems and Rolls-Royce digital services for clients worldwide operating with modern Trent 1000, Trent XWB, and Trent 7000 engines.

According to a QOCO Managing Director Markku Nyman, “We are thrilled with what’s only the first stage of the Rolls-Royce–QOCO partnership. Together, we have the necessary expertise and skillset to pursue digital transformation in the aviation industry and give airlines rapid access to the benefits of data-driven solutions while tackling typical integration issues.”

QOCO’s EngineData.io solution gives customers the capabilities they need to digitalise data flows out-of-the-box, enabling fast time-to-market of new data integration services.

QOCO’s capability to roll out projects globally with minimum burden to airlines and Rolls-Royce provides key business benefits to all parties.

Richard Swallow, Head of Digital Service Readiness at Rolls-Royce said ”We are delighted to be able to offer our customers a practical solution to data collaboration. EngineData.io gives airlines complete control over the data they choose to automatically share with and receive from us. And they have confidence that the data transfer is fully secure. It’s very effective, reducing the effort required by our customers to operate some services by over 50%”.

QOCO Managing Director Markku Nyman added, “We are delighted to facilitate the integration process of all Rolls-Royce customer airlines that use Trent engines as part of their digital systems. We would like to thank Rolls-Royce for trusting our capability to provide our solution and consulting services globally.”

Rolls-Royce and QOCO will continue to work in tandem to help airlines optimise business processes. By automating real-world data exchange with Rolls-Royce digital services and EngineData.io, carriers can reduce operational costs, gather insights on each trip, maximise Trent engines’ utilisation and optimise maintenance schedules.

Automating data flows between airlines, MROs and OEMs. Example: Engine overhaul
Realizing paperless maintenance and operations has been the target of airlines, MROs and OEMs in recent decades. With the increased adoption of electronic technical logbooks and digital solutions in maintenance, a growing number of airlines are getting close to going 100% paperless in their internal operations. However, that development is less well advanced when it comes to external communication. Data sharing is essential for efficient collaboration in the industry.
