Case Study – Australian Aerospace
Australian Aerospace is the only helicopter producer in Australia and New Zealand and a subsidiary of the Eurocopter, which is a wholly-owned subsidiary of EADS, the largest aerospace and Defence Company in Europe.
The company assembles, supplies and maintains military and civil aircraft for the Australian and export markets.
ADEC Preview was approached to undertake the scanning of the Engineering work packs and administration files in order to reduce the hardcopy boxes as the storage area was filling up fast.
As commented by Australian Aerospace, "We had built up a large archive of engineering work packs over the years and the storage and handling of them was beginning to become an issue. We decided to digitise the packs so that we could access them via our electronic archiving system; we needed to find a scanning bureau that could offer us the desired quality".
The department was moving across to an electronic archiving system and at the end of the project ADEC Preview provided the digital images in a format that could easily be imported into the system for viewing.
Australian Aerospace now regularly sends hard copy documents for scanning to integrate with their electronic document management solution.
