Modification and retrofit programmes are a complex mix of funding, design, materials and parts, certification, engineering and after sales support – any one of which can become a potential stumbling block to derail your project. This session will examine the latest best practice and innovations to address these paint points, including:

  • Getting buy-in from all stake-holders and commitment to the schedule.
  • How to manage multiple suppliers and ensure in-time success.
  • How to set up a robust materials support system.
  • Ensuring certification issues do not interrupt the modification line.
  • Accessing personnel with the appropriate technical skills for interiors projects.
  • Successful projects do not end with fleet installation – implementing reliable after-sales as part of your project strategy.
  • How can innovations in 3D printing address pain points in the after-market?
