US-based company and Boeing division Tapestry Solutions has collaborated with contractor Kay & Associates to upgrade maintenance processes for the Kuwait Air Force (KAF).
The project will be carried out under a contract modification received from the US Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR).
The scope of the project includes the automation and standardisation of the KAF maintenance management infrastructure by using GOLDesp maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) software.
In June 2011, GOLDesp MRO was incorporated for the KAF F/A-18 fighter attack aircraft under an original contract received from NAVAIR.
Tapestry Solutions president and chief executive officer a Robin Wright said: “The implementation of our enterprise-level software will significantly reduce operational costs for the KAF while improving their productivity and equipment availability.
“Receiving this contract is a significant milestone for our company as it demonstrates the KAF's confidence in our software and services.”
