Rotable & Repairable Parts Inventory Management
MRO supply chain planning & optimization software for rotable and repairable spare parts inventory.
Do you need more info on Syncron Rotables Planning and how it can help you to manage your rotable and repairable parts?

In the repair environment, the parts process is cyclical: parts rotate as an unserviceable spares from the field, go into remanufacturing or repair, and return to the warehouse as a serviceable spare. These parts are normally known as rotables or repairables.
The Maintenance, Repair and Operations (MRO) supply chain planning process, controlling the flow of repairable parts, is more complex and challenging; but effectively managing rotable parts reduces the cost for your aftermarket operation and increases profitability. It is crucial that the MRO supply chain is well integrated to provide visibility of serviceable and unserviceable parts between the repair shop, supplier, warehouse and customer.
Syncron’s module for Rotables Planning optimizes the rotable parts process, across the different nodes of the MRO supply chain, by automatically forecasting and timely scheduling the repair of the unserviceable part.
Repair orders as well as supplier orders are created based on the following: forecasted demand of serviceable parts at the warehouse, replenishment parameters (includes the repair lead time), and the supplier lead time. The solution ensures both repair orders and supplier orders are initiated timely to keep stock values down without jeopardizing the service levels.
Not all rotable and repairable parts can be remanufacturerd or repaired and some are scrapped because they are Beyond Economic Repair. This aspect is accounted for by Syncron’s process. Syncron Rotables Planning automatically creates supplier orders for new products to ensure the total size of the Rotable pool…...

...discount rates used are subject to measurement uncertainty. Property and equipment Property and equipment is originally recorded at cost. Property under capital leases and the related obligation for future lease payments are initially recorded at an amount equal to the lesser of fair value of the property or equipment and the present value of those lease payments. Property and equipment are depreciated to estimated residual values based on the straight-line method over their estimated service lives. Property and equipment under capital leases within variable interest entities are depreciated to estimated residual values over the life of the lease. Air Canada’s aircraft and flight equipment, including spare engines and related parts (“rotables”), are depreciated over 20 to 25 years, with 10 to 20% estimated residual values. Aircraft reconfiguration costs are amortized over three to five years. Betterments to owned aircraft are capitalized and amortized over the remaining service life of the aircraft. Betterments to aircraft on operating leases are amortized over the term of the lease. Buildings are depreciated over their useful lives not exceeding 50 years on a straight-line basis. An exception to this is where the useful life of the building is greater than the term of the land lease. In these circumstances, the building is depreciated over the life of the lease. Leasehold improvements are amortized over the lesser of the lease term or five years. Ground and other......

...servicing to MRO hubs like Singapore, Malaysia, South Korea, China, Japan and Dubai. The MRO space is a $45-billion market globally, of which India constitutes only 1%. To increase MRO business in India, following are suggested:  Rationalization of taxes / customs duties: The high tax regime in India is a major deterrent. This makes aircraft servicing about 50% more expensive in India than internationally. Servicing an aircraft in India would entail service tax of 12.36% (there is no such service tax overseas). Importing spares involves customs duties of 25.40%. This unfavourable tax regime makes it cheaper for airlines to undertake MRO checks out of the country. Customs duties and tariffs need to be at par with the Airliners for spares, rotables, special tooling and test equipment which are an integral part of any third party dedicated MRO facility. Manpower: There is a perceived shortage of institutions which can produce skilled/technical manpower required to handle MRO operations and this should be duly addressed. Infrastructure Status: In order to ensure economic viability and cost competitiveness, it is essential that the MRO segment is given the ―infrastructure status‖ with its accompanying fiscal benefits and incentives.    Deemed Export Status: It is also essential for the MRO business to get the status of ―deemed export‖. Support Infrastructure: Infrastructural constraints have acted as a major deterrent towards development of MROs. Government needs......

...certain property and equipment, including aircraft purchase deposits, is capitalized as an additional cost of the asset or as a leasehold improvement if the asset is leased. Interest capitalized for the years ended December 31, 2011, 2010 and 2009 was $8 million, $4 million and $10 million, respectively. Property and equipment is depreciated and amortized to residual values over the estimated useful lives or the lease term, whichever is less, using the straight-line method. Costs of major improvements that enhance the usefulness of the asset are capitalized and depreciated over the estimated useful life of the asset or the modifications, whichever is less. The estimated useful lives of owned aircraft, jet engines, other flight equipment and rotable parts range from five to 30 years. Leasehold improvements relating to flight equipment and other property on operating leases are amortized over the life of the lease or the life of the asset or improvement, whichever is shorter, on a straight-line basis. The estimated useful lives for other owned property and equipment range from three to 12 years and range from 18 to 30 years for training equipment and buildings. The Company records impairment losses on long-lived assets used in operations when events and circumstances indicate that the assets might be impaired.

Although Ryanair seeks to maintain its fleet in a cost-effective manner, management does not seek to extend Ryanair’s low cost operating strategy to the areas of safety, maintenance, training or quality assurance. Routine aircraft maintenance and repair services are performed at Dublin, London (Stansted), Glasgow (Prestwick), Shannon and Milan (Bergamo) by Ryanair and, at other airports, by maintenance contractors approved under the terms of Part 145/JAR 145, the European airline industry standard for maintenance. Ryanair currently contracts heavy airframe maintenance, engine overhaul services and rotable repairs to contractors. These contractors also provide similar services to a number of other airlines, including British Airways and Aer Lingus.

Inventory Reporting for Airlines

...classifications are expendable parts and rotable parts. They are defined by the codification, FASB, ASC 908-330-20 “Expendable Parts: Parts that are ordinarily used up (consumed) and replaced with new parts, as opposed to those parts that are capable of being used over and over after being refurbished (rotable flight equipment). Rotable Parts: Rotable parts are normally repaired and reused, as opposed to those parts that are consumed in the operations (expendable parts).” According to FASB, ASC 908-330-05-2, “The inventories in an airline operation (that is, carrier services for passengers and/or cargo) are for internal consumption and not for sale; they therefore differ substantially from the classical definition (see Topic 330). Inventories in an airline operation comprise primarily expendable (spare) parts and materials and supplies used in the airline's operation.” This means that rotable parts should not be treated as inventory. These are major parts of the aircraft, like engines that will be repaired and maintained. They should be treated as fixed assets according to FASB, ASC 908-360-45-1 “Rotable parts and assemblies of significant value are classified along with flight equipment as fixed assets.” Expendable parts include things such as nuts and bolts and are parts that are used up and must be replaced. They do not represent large components of the aircraft, but can be used in the maintenance of fixed assets. For instance the maintenance of the rotable parts will......

Although the IRS has continued to assert its position in audits for the years 1995 through 2000 with respect to maintenance costs for jet engines and rotable aircraft parts, we believe this ruling should also apply to future tax years. As a result of this ruling, we recognized a one-time benefit in 2004 of $26 million, net of tax, primarily related to the reduction of accruals related to this matter and the recognition of interest earned on the amount we paid in 2001. These adjustments affected both net interest expense ($30 million pretax) and income tax expense ($7 million). Future periods are not expected to be materially affected by the resolution of this matter. On November 19, 2003, the IRS appealed this ruling to the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals.
