We are very proud of Series 5. It was truly a global effort that involved everyone; our customers, internal leadership, industry consultants, subject matter experts and software engineers. Release 5.1 is the beginning in a series of significant changes that will re-shape how the aviation industry approaches enterprise maintenance systems; Ramco is leading the way
Lawrenceville, NJ (PRWEB) August 30, 2009
The latest suite, Series 5 M&E and MRO, is a group of software applications developed on the newest
version of Ramco Virtual Works. Continuing with the strong presence in Aviation Maintenance and Enterprise Management, Ramco has simplified critical user interfaces by incorporating the latest standards in User Centric Design (UCD). With UCD principles applied to the maintenance planning and execution modules, planners, supervisors and mechanics now spend more time focusing on the job they were hired to do and less time managing data input.
Release 5.1 incorporates many end user enhancements, which further simplifies the typical 'day in the life' scenarios that confront end users. To date, this is one of the most robust enhancements to the system and sets the standard for things to come within the future Series 5 releases.
By leveraging Ramco's Virtual Works platform, customers can expand and extend the core applications though a series of IT tools known as the Implementation Tool Kit (ITK) and the Extension Development Kit (EDK). Making changes to screens, adding new fields, changing names and menu structures or even creating entirely new functions are all possible through the use of Virtual Works and its inbuilt extension and development tools. This means that an operator or repair facility can take advantage of the robust core functionality offered in the M&E / MRO Series 5 product, and still have the freedom to expand the system as the operation demands. The end result is a cost effective approach to a solution that will last for decades. Ramco's Aviation Series 5 suite enables new flexibility for customers and the industry while providing increased control over their day-to-day operations allowing for expansion without being handcuffed to rigid or inflexible technologies.
"In aviation, people often trade end-user simplicity for regulatory compliance and financial control. The Ramco team of engineers designed Series 5 as a system that increases compliance and control, while simultaneously decreasing end-user complexity. This was no easy task, but we designed and developed those types of changes into the Series 5 suite. Every time we open a screen or look at the application, it is from a user's point of view. Our usability engineers are constantly applying new techniques and deploying streamlined processes without sacrificing the rich tradition of Ramco's thorough regulatory and financial controls," said John Stone, Director of Product & Market Management for Ramco's Global Aviation Solutions Group.
