SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 20 (Xinhua) -- Boeing on Tuesday announced that All Nippon Airways (ANA) will be the launch customer for Insight Accelerator (IA).
IA is a new cloud-based digital solution employing artificial intelligence to improve operational efficiency and avoid high-impact service disruptions, the company said.
Boeing developed the IA platform based on decades of experience supporting the global fleet and developing rigorous methods while assisting "Airplane-on-Ground" situations, it added.
"There are many products on the market for flight data analytics but Insight Accelerator is the most effective tool for our aircraft operation," said Manubu Tono, All Nippon Airways manager of Planning & Administration, Engineering. "It's very innovative, and meets our primary goal of leveraging features in-flight data that indicate a system failure before it happens."
"IA's built-in artificial intelligence, guided exploration and powerful visualizations allow airlines to investigate flight and maintenance data, identify trends and discover insights - all without specialized coding or programming skills," said Duane Wehking, vice president of Digital Aviation Solutions at Boeing Global Services.
ANA operates the world's largest 787 fleet with 77 Dreamliners including all three sub-models, according to Boeing. ■
