Capgemini and Amazon Web Services launch pioneering aerospace lifecycle optimisation platform

At the International Paris Air Show (SIAE), Capgemini and Amazon Web Services (AWS) announced the unveiling of their platform “Lifecycle Optimisation for Aerospace”. This breakthrough platform seeks to expedite the implementation of circular economy practices within the aerospace industry by automating inspection processes, optimising the analysis of aircraft parts lifecycle, and guiding vital decisions for extending their lifespan. Several major sector players, including Air France and Safran, were involved in its development and will be among the platform’s earliest users.

An integrated, secure solution for the aerospace ecosystem

The “Lifecycle Optimisation for Aerospace” platform ensures secure collection and analysis of in-service operations to offer an overarching view and understanding of a component’s usage over time. This secure procurement of historical data will enhance the potential for reutilising each piece of an aircraft, assisting the aerospace ecosystem – owners, operators, and equipment manufacturers – in collaboration and in enhancing the use of existing products. The ambition for the upcoming phase is to extend the platform’s capabilities to recycling these parts, ensuring the potential to valorise the materials from unusable components.

Strategic partnerships for a sustainable future

Developed by Capgemini and built on AWS Cloud, the “Lifecycle Optimisation for Aerospace” platform is a testament to the strategic partnership between Capgemini and AWS. It employs specifically developed artificial intelligence and machine learning services (natural language processing) trained on data models, adhering to the standards of the AeroSpace and Defence Industries Association of Europe. The platform consolidates historical operational data and establishes a comprehensive traceability of all constituents of an aircraft.

The platform represents a valuable digital asset on which Capgemini is building services to optimise maintenance approaches and the use of existing components, with the assistance of companies interested in the project. The platform has already demonstrated its capacity to optimise inspection phases and the continuous development of complementary services, with the ambition of providing a decision-making tool for users at various stages of the sustainability value chain.
