All Nippon Airways Becomes Launch Customer for Boeing’s New Insight Accelerator
Boeing has today announced that All Nippon Airways (ANA) will be the launch customer for the company’s new Insight Accelerator (IA), a cloud-based digital solution employing AI to improve operational efficiency and reduce service disruptions.
On Tuesday (September 20, 2022), Boeing announced that All Nippon Airways (ANA) will be the launch customer for the company’s new Insight Accelerator (IA). The cloud-based digital solution employs AI to improve operational efficiency, while reducing the impact of service disruptions. While modern state-of-the-art aircraft such as the Boeing 787 Dreamliner generate large amounts of flight data, many airlines lack the infrastructure to manage and leverage the information. Boeing’s IA uses out-of-the-box algorithms to sort and detect anomalies, creating alerts that enable operators to take proactive maintenance and repair actions.
In today’s announcment, ANA’s manager of Planning & Administration, and Engineering Manubu Tono, said,
“There are many products on the market for flight data analytics but Insight Accelerator is the most effective tool for our aircraft operation. It’s very innovative, and meets our primary goal of leveraging features in flight data that indicate a system failure before it happens.”
Boeing Global Services’ Vice President of Digital Aviation Solutions, Duane Wehking, added,
“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. This is an easy-to-use solution that will provide value to airlines from day one.”
Boeing developed the Insight Accelerator platform based on decades of experience supporting the global fleet and developing rigorous solutions to manage ‘Airplane-on-Ground’ situations.
