Abstract: Environmental concerns have increasingly led companies to optimise their production processes. Thus, the search for greater efficiency has led to the desire to better integrate management tools. This has also been the case in the civil aviation industry, due to its stringent requirements, particularly regarding safety aspects. The objective of this article is to propose an integration of management tools, specifically including the value chain and product lifecycle management (PLM), with an emphasis on new product development (NPD), supply chain management (SCM) and maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) in the civil aviation sector. To better describe the relationship between PLM and the tools related to its best use within a value chain, a critical review of the literature was performed. The main result of this study suggests the integration of the SCM, MRO and PLM management tools.

Keywords: civil aviation industry; integration; product lifecycle management; PLM; maintenance, repair and overhaul; new product development; NPD; maintenance, repair and overhaul; MRO; supply chain management; SCM; management tools.
