Lufthansa Systems solution for Germanwings flight ops documentation
Germanwings has opted for the Lufthansa Systems IT solutions EFOM (Electronic Flight Operations Manuals) and DocSurf to enable it to access current electronic operations documentation at any time.
EFOM is designed to create, manage and publish operations manuals. The involved change from paper documents to electronic ones will enable extensive process optimisation. For example, EFOM automatically imports Airbus FCOMs (Flight Crew Operations Manuals) and detects changes to the documents. The software then supports and monitors the subsequent revision process and ensures the manuals are released according to specifications.
Germanwings will use the DocSurf solution on all of its pilot laptops to display the operations manuals. EFOM also stores metadata which makes it possible to set aircraft- or fleet-specific filters, navigate between documents for additional information, or view revisions to previous versions, so pilots can focus on the information relevant to their aircraft.
