Embraer signed a five-year Embraer Collaborative Inventory Parts (ECIP) service contract with Kunpeng Airlines Co., Ltd., the newest E-Jets operator in China. Kun Peng currently has more than 1,900 part numbers from seven maintenance bases covered by ECIP.
The ECIP program monitors customer parts usage, guarantees automatic stock replenishment, shortens delivery times for contracted parts, and establishes a baseline for the carriers to better manage their costs. By reducing the workload for planning, controlling and purchasing expendable parts, the airlines can also save management time for repairable items.
