Importance of ICTs in the control of information flows for planning demand and materials procurement logistics in highly un-standardized aircraft fleets
The operation of a highly diverse and heterogeneous aircraft fleet, demands the existence of multi-variable controls, where Information and Communications Technologies (ICTs) become an essential element for effective management, enabling the foreseeing of the unscheduled demands of materials for their acquisition in a timely manner, improving the process of decision making and mitigating associated risks.
The structuring of an information system that supports the effective monitoring of the analysis and compliance of the Regulatory and Service Information (RSI) in the Colombian Air Force (COLAF) aircraft fleets, becomes a valuable resource that allows continuous airworthiness compliance and the integration of actors in the supply chain, contributing to the fulfillment of their mission objectives.
