Abstract: This paper is to develop an integrated information platform of aircraft maintenance management (AMM) for optimisation of scheduling planning and control management in aircraft maintenance plant of an aircraft manufacturer. The AMM is offering the environments which maintenance resources are shared and improve the production control, and as a result enhance the competitiveness of the whole aircraft production and maintenance management. The scheduling problems adopt an iterated greedy algorithm to solve the problem and find an optimised solution. Aircraft maintenance management information system with all updated electronisation maintenance records, and the application of logistic engineering analysis also improves the efficiency of the whole aircraft production and maintenance management. The beneficial effect on striving for fleet management and maintenance business will be founded in the future for aircraft maintenance plant. In this paper, we provided the applications of the AMM and the advantages are presented in the conclusions.
