Dr Ip-Shing Fan

Dr Ip-Shing Fan is a Senior Lecturer in Enterprise Systems at Cranfield University, leading Digital MRO in DARTeC, supporting aviation transformation in operations and maintenance. He is leading the Digital MRO and Hangar laboratories in the Cranfield DARTeC Initiative. The complex is a realistic representation of airport ramp and hangar environment to study the interactions between aircraft, engineers, airport and hangar facilities, ground vehicles and drones. The digital infrastructure support aircraft digital twins work to maintain the accurate configuration in the information world of airworthiness, as the engineering health status of the aircraft structure and systems to predict and prevent failures.
