Paul Lochab, CCO of Satair Group says: "We are pleased that Thai Airways chooses the Airbus Managed Inventory solution, which is tailor-made for the supply chain requirements of our industry. Thai Airways is known around the globe as a world-class airline with world-class products, and we are confident that the AMI service will prove to be just the right tool for them to continue to keep their aircraft in perfect condition."
Plt. Off. Noppalith Charoensup, Vice President, Thai Airways, continues: "Thai Airways is happy to have signed this AMI agreement to support us in minimising our spares investment and inventory costs while maximising delivery of parts when needed. We are certain that the AMI solution will minimise and secure costs while optimizing our end-to-end supply chain solution."
The AMI automated inventory management solution supports Airbus customers in reducing their inventory holding costs. By capturing material consumption information in real-time and automatically triggering replenishment orders within the agreed inventory levels, the service guarantees high on-shelf part availability while decreasing the overall inventory stock level, reducing the cost of ordering Airbus material.
Lochab ends: "We expect to support Thai Airways in reducing their inventory and administrative cost by streamlining their supply chain through the innovative and efficient processes of the AMI solution. AMI is a prime example of how Satair Group provides world-class material management and supply-chain services and solutions to world-class customers."
