Following the Covid-19 pandemic, airlines are needing to look at cost savings and efficiencies, however, also needing to invest in different areas. How do we create a value case for new mobile application of new systems and to help transform maintenance, increase productivity and efficiencies?

The Electronic TechLog (ETL) is an important tool in digital maintenance. But what regulatory considerations are there, and what are the implications for safety management, such as the Aircraft Network Safety Program (ANSP)? What are the problems with legacy systems moving to modern platforms and what are the best approvals processes? Key compliance and approval requirements are also explored.
