AirAsia to implement Airbus managed inventory service

The AMI service provides for automatic replenishment of inventory to ensures the continuous replenishment of high-usage and non-repairable parts at the airlines’ facilities. By capturing material consumption information in real-time and automatically triggering replenishment orders within the agreed inventory levels, the service guarantees high on-shelf part availability while decreasing the overall inventory stock level.
