Reducing aircraft downtime thanks to Critical Chain Project Management



While being already competitive, ABS Jets wants to further reduce the aircraft downtimes in its Prague's maintenance center for business jets.



  • Critical Chain deployment for a dynamic scheduling of the mechanics' work throughout the maintenance visit.

  • Creation of work packages to group relevent task cards.

  • Daily update of the schedule.

  • Monitoring with the Fever Chart, the main KPI to track project progress.


  • Reduction by 30% of aircraft downtime. A Check C maintenance executed in 4.5 weeks instead of 7 weeks.

  • Elimination of the stressfull work environment.

  • Clarity and stability of the priorities given by the management.

  • Durations garanteed by a "project buffer".
