Remote monitoring plays a critical role in the infrastructure of running an airline. Both ThingWorx and Kepware have been integrated into Southwest’s Maintenance management system for automated work order generation. From one central location, SouthWest is able to track numerous aircrafts and their status all over the country. This includes average time spent at a dock, and extra fuel burn. In turn, tracking these metrics will allow for SouthWest to track important airport and aircraft metrics as well as trends. This will allow them to reduce down time and save money.
