One Brazilian airline, Empresa Brasileira de Aeronáutica (Embraer), turned to PTC for help.
They saw their aftermarket services growing, but their legacy systems couldn’t keep up with the demand. As an OEM, Embraer's customers expected the company to service and support its products. However, because its systems were out of date, its service levels were falling while its stock of obsolete inventory was on the way up.
PTC worked with Embraer to implement Servigistics, a service parts management solution. The technology gave Embraer a single solution to forecast demand, balance inventory across its global supply chain, and automate its process for replenishing inventory. Since implementing the solution, Embraer has been able to reduce the parts it has in stock for its commercial aviation clients by 12.5% while improving both inventory turns and service levels. The OEM achieved all of that without hiring additional staff.

Since moving to PTC’s Service Parts Management solution, “the improvements to our spare parts planning capabilities have been dramatic,” says Embraer Logistic Projects Engineer Marcos Simas Magalhães.
