  • Alan Butterfield: wow!
    Posted by Lee Ann Tegtmeier 9:32 AM on Sep 21, 2012

    Alan Butterfield, Air Canada's VP maintenance and engineering, just gave a rousing and incredibly useful talk (keynote address actually) on how his organization transformed to a Spec 2000 driven MRO IT organization. In a nutshell, Trax is the repository of all the data and suppliers all must funnel data into it.

    So, if you work for a supplier or service provider that doesn't deliver Spec 2000 data, don't call Air Canada with a business proposal. It won't work, guaranteed.

    As Alan said, "we jumped off the cliff" and are not going back. Kudos Air Canada and thank you Alan for such an inspiring talk!
