The Customer

Dubai Aerospace Enterprise (DAE)

About The Customer
Dubai Aerospace Enterprise (DAE) is a global aviation corporation specializing in aircraft leasing and engineering services. It leases its $16B USD fleet of 425 advanced Boeing, ATR, and Airbus aircraft to more than 108 operators in 52 countries. DAE is committed to driving efficiency throughout the asset lifecycle and reducing its carbon footprint through a comprehensive decommissioning strategy for older aircraft. The company also places a high emphasis on operational efficiency and waste reduction as part of its environmental strategy.
The Challenge
Dubai Aerospace Enterprise (DAE) was faced with the challenge of managing over 2 million records related to its $16B USD fleet of 425 advanced Boeing, ATR, and Airbus aircraft leased to more than 108 operators in 52 countries. The sheer volume of maintenance documentation, compliance, inspection audits, and lease transfers with airline customers was overwhelming. The data was siloed across multiple systems or locations, creating bottlenecks and inefficiencies, which impacted the delivery of information to customers. DAE had digitized part of its information, but the platform was outdated and discontinued in terms of future development and support. This meant more time and effort required to respond to customers with accurate information. Additionally, the security of hundreds of thousands of paper records was at risk in the event of a disaster such as a flood or fire.
The Solution
DAE selected GE Digital’s Asset Transfer System (ATS) to manage its records and project management requirements. The ATS software, part of GE Digital's Asset Records portfolio, is designed to digitize, index, and archive aircraft maintenance records with a cloud-based solution. This system supports the latest international regulatory standards for transmitting documents between lessors and operators. It provides users with quick, efficient access to documents spanning many years. The fully integrated Records and Project Management modules allow for digital auditing, storage, and document search during the lease period while optimizing the exchange and review of asset records at the end of the lease period. Powered by Microsoft Azure, it operates with minimal additional IT infrastructure, allowing organizations to connect through secure web-based access.
Operational Impact
  • The implementation of GE Digital’s Asset Transfer System (ATS) has streamlined DAE's processes and improved customer service. The system has been used to maintain checklists, manage permissions, search and retrieve documents, and share and transfer large packages of documents. Project management functions have been streamlined for every kind of asset transition. For the sales and trading team members, pre-configured checklists make opening a new project fast and easy. The status of an active job can be easily checked, with details about asset returns, stakeholder information, and overall project progress available in a concise view. Once all documentation is captured, the records package is transferred securely and seamlessly to DAE customers. The team is also digitizing archival data around previously owned aircraft for insurers and audit purposes.
Quantitative Benefit
  • 18 aircraft transitions completed in the first 6 months using ATS
  • Over 2 million records digitized
  • More than 1.8 million DAE documents migrated into the ATS application
