Online seminar Fremont, California United States
Event Listing
Summary:

Overview

Alternate Service Delivery as provided by industry in Canada offers various approaches to the provision of in service support for military aircraft ranging from total support to limited support for 3rd line requirements. The background to Canada’s approach that has been evolving for the past two decades is instructive as it started with one fleet and then was extended to others as it proved its worth as an efficient and effective method of supporting various types of aircraft.

The webinar will cover this background in detail and will then discuss the evolution of the concept using one aircraft type- CP140 Maritime Patrol aircraft (US P-3C) from early days to today. The webinar will then discuss the expansion of the program to other fleets and will discuss the different approaches applied to each fleet. The results achieved to date will then be discussed in general. Lessons learned will be considered as will the latest approaches to in service support associated with recent new equipment acquisitions.

Summary:

Overview

This webinar provides a detailed look at recent trends and outlook for construction spending, materials costs and employment, nationally and by state. Rather than treating construction as a single industry or a simple split between residential and nonresidential, the webinar delves into the sharply differing trends and future drivers for single- and multifamily residential construction, 10 categories of private nonresidential construction, and the leading public categories-highway & street and educational, both K-12 and higher.

The recent strong growth in construction employment and sharp drop in unemployment are examined, along with evidence of current and likely shortages of skilled labor in different occupations. National employment data are disaggregated to show which states are experiencing the strongest growth and which are lagging. Evidence is provided on how pricing of new construction projects compares with changes in labor and materials costs, along with an examination of costs for specific inputs.

Summary:

Overview

Nutrition is a topic of interest to most consumers. The consumption of healthy food is the goal of a large portion of the population. As the food industry has grown, methods of food production, processing, distribution, and preparation have changed and a portion of consumers have become concerned about processed foods, especially meats. Furthermore, skepticism over the nutritive value of fresh meat has increased. Major changes have included increased prepackaged meats,

partially or fully prepared bulk or pre-portioned servings, and centralized processing. This trend has caused additional concern about the nutritional value of meat.

The Value of Hourly Cost Maintenance Programs Webinar By Compliance4all
10/29/2014 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
Online seminar Fremont, California United States

Summary:

Why should you Attend:

A brand-new aircraft comes with a warranty that will cover the operator’s unscheduled maintenance costs. Warranty coverage intervals vary by aircraft sector (e.g., airframe, Engines, Avionics) and, over time, aircraft maintenance will account for as much as 35% of your aircraft’s annual operating budget. The cost to maintain an aircraft varies by make / model and age, and its maintenance program is based on three parameters: flight hours; landings (what is also referred to as cycles); and the passage of time (due to calendar-based maintenance events). Scheduled maintenance will include "cost spikes," such as major airframe maintenance, and engine or Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) overhaul. Additionally, scheduled maintenance costs become less predictable as an aircraft ages, and unscheduled maintenance events can occur at any time and be very expensive.

Who Will Benefit:

Aircraft Owners, Operators, Buyers, Sellers, Financiers, Appraisers, and Insurers.

Senior corporate executives involved in the aircraft acquisition, operation and/or disposition process.

Flight Department Managers, including Directors of Aviation and Chief Pilots.

Aircraft Maintenance Managers.

Personnel involved in aircraft financing, including Credit Officers, Risk Officers, and Asset Managers

Using Maintenance Information to Optimize an Aircrafts Value

Online seminar Fremont, California United States
Event Listing
Summary:

Overview

The days when an aircraft's maintenance quality was classified as "good" or "bad" based on the "mid-time / mid-life" flight hours and cycles of its major components has today been overshadowed by computing power that is able to process vast amounts of maintenance data, covering the entire aircraft, to deliver timely, quantifiable, actionable financial information.

Detailed maintenance analytics are not simple to derive, but they are not difficult to obtain and need not be expensive. In any transaction, such information is available to all interested parties, including the buyer, seller, financial services company, and even the insurer, along with impartial parties such as appraisers. Utilizing such information, along with detailed knowledge of market trends, an aircraft owner can create both a short and long-range strategy to optimize their investment's "value." Because you cannot manage what you cannot measure, any strategy designed to optimize asset value should be based on objective metrics and evaluate an aircraft on multiple levels. Additionally, maintenance analytics must be based on a standardized scale to permit a direct comparison between similar aircraft, as well as different make / model aircraft.
