AGUILAS / Application to control and monitor production operations on the A400M FAL

Industrial engineering

Technical consultancy / Operations

Date: 2011 – ongoing

Client: Airbus D&S

AERTEC Solutions has developed the AGUILAS application (AERTEC Graphical User Interface for Local Advanced Services), which is in charge of monitoring production on the A400M FAL.

AGUILAS centralises all the information from the different data sources used in operational planning (SAP, CATS, MS Project…).

It allows standardised automated monitoring reports to be generated for the different workstations, thereby minimising creation times and the errors committed when they are prepared manually.

Likewise, its enormous customisation capability allows its use to be extended to all workstations, even when the production processes they perform are different (Airframe & Ground System Tests).

Its cloud-based application architecture allows one to work from any terminal equipped with an internet connection and it implements a robust and secure authentication and data processing system.
