JAC decided to adopt WES 2009 installed BOX computer. Beginning in March 2014, approximately 70 computers have been installed. WES2009 is ideal for continuing the use of Windows XP systems and enables extended support up to January 8, 2019 (with product distribution up to January 8, 2024). What was the determining factor for adopting Contec's industrial computer for the current system shift besides this prolonging action?
"An important condition was to be able to prolong the life of the system to meet Japan Airlines group network regulations. Contec carefully listened to our requests and gave us a proposal, with a deep understanding of our needs. In the process of adopting, Contec lent us a computer for demonstration, and checked operation with us. They also carefully listened to our customization requests. Their fast response with good understanding was very reassuring. We found the Box Computer easy to use and customize efficiently that enables us to utilize white list security system and to customize Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) function (automatic OS update)(Mr. Iwamoto)
New benefits are also expected with BOX computers adoption.
"In the past, if we wanted to implement a new program, it would have to be installed individually into each terminal, so trips had to be made to each airport to install it in each terminal, In the future, the installation or changes to specifications can be done at Kagoshima (head office), and this is a huge advantage we look forward to.” (Mr. Iwamoto)
The compact A5 size is also very beneficial. The attractive fact is that it can be managed in a compact size for batch management similar to a server.
"The fact that the system change can be done comfortably is a huge advantage for our local workers. the system change created no work delays. This is a huge advantage, as the most important thing for operations is being able to continue use the system as usual without any hindrances." (Mr. Iwamoto
The J-MAC aircraft maintenance management system is at the heart of the JAC's aircraft maintenance
BX955 installed in the server room. The compact design saves space.
