Overview

Within maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO), parts procurement processes are labor intensive and paper-based. The exchange of critical documents is needed to ensure prompt collaboration and supply chain efficiency.

SITA’s Community Messaging for Aircraft Parts Procurement offers browser-based solutions for Spec 2000 supply chain messages, as well as integration and communication solutions for Spec 2000 EDI messages.
