Airbus Commercial and Maana today reported Airbus Cognitive Platform ("AIRKOG") that is equipped for responding to any domain-explicit question.
Made via Airbus Commercial and fueled by Maana, AIRKOG encodes the topic aptitude of individuals, organizes a scope of instruments, and uses terabytes of information from numerous hotspots for the turn of events and arrangement of intelligent applications to address basic technical questions on A320, A330 and A350 aircraft models.
“As a transformational platform, AIRKOG is helping us to drive improvements at Airbus Commercial,” said Florent Bouix, AIRKOG Platform Manager for Big Data products service line at Airbus. “We provide solutions to thousands of employees with an increasing number of intelligent applications in engineering, procurement, logistics, quality, program management, as well as rapid analysis for plant and final assembly line improvements.”
Utilizing AIRKOG platform capacities, Airbus consolidates information from many various frameworks; distinguishes and builds up countless relations and correlations, carry out computations and run investigation across different operational domains; all on a solitary platform.
“Thanks to AIRKOG, we achieved multi-million Euro cost savings per year at various areas,” Mr. Bouix stated “for example:
Managing complex process related to new parts introduction due to aircraft changes for new Head of Version (involving engineering, sourcing, ordering, and manufacturing),
Supporting the margin reviews or costs reduction of some aircraft options,
Mastering electrical harnesses configuration changes and reallocation by providing multivariate analysis to avoid scrapping in a complex manufacturing organization with multiple plants.”
AIRKOG began in 2017 as a proof of concept for utilization of information chart innovation to lessen time spent via Airbus specialists and professionals looking for information. AIRKOG moved to steer stage in 2018, and into production in 2019. Following two years running in production at scale, Airbus Commercial and Maana broadened their organization for an additional three years for 2021-2023.
“AIRKOG is an intelligent platform, like its consumer-facing cousins Siri and Alexa,” said Babur Ozden, Founder and CEO of Maana. “However, it answers far more difficult questions regarding many complex aspects of making, maintaining, and repairing aircraft.”
“Thanks to AIRKOG platform and the computational knowledge graph at its core, we reduced costs by 20% - 30% and lead-time for analysis by 30% - 75% on our digitalization platform” said Marc Monties, WideBody digitalization plateau leader at Airbus.
