Swiss AviationSoftware has announced the successful cut-over to AMOS M&E system at Lufthansa German Airlines and Lufthansa Cargo.
The “big-bang” go-live took place on May 14th and 15th and marked the ultimate finalisation of an implementation unique in Swiss-AS history in terms of size and complexity: 3.500 users, 150 new processes, a multitude of individual legacy IT systems being replaced and close to 300 aircraft ranging over seven aircraft-types including the Airbus A320s with up to 30 years of history.
Both airlines have fully adopted AMOS for their whole active fleets in a multi-CAMO setup – two completely separated CAMOs (LHA + LCAG) plus one SCAMT service provider working in one AMOS environment – all approved by the German aviation authority.
The global pandemic had a significant impact on the AMOS implementation as all projects at Lufthansa had been put on hold in 2020. Fortunately, the airlines’ management then decided to continue the AMOS rollout as one of few strategic projects: “AMOS Restart” was born and came with an adjusted scope and limited manpower. Nevertheless, the project team managed to bring the project back to speed and successfully completed it. The airline embraced the opportunity to emerge stronger and more resilient from the crisis.
