AeroStrategy estimates that total current airline inventory is valued at around $45B, and about 15-17% of total inventory as "excess". That means about $7B worth of assets are not being utilized in an industry where the number one focus is cost and the bottom line.

Aviation Week's Inventory & Engine Asset Management Forum is the only event of its kind to look at total asset management with a focus on rotable inventory and engines.

This Forum will deliver:
- Insight into the growing trend towards Integrated Global Supply Chain Solutions (be it with airlines, MROs or OEMs) and educate the audience on:
- judging current systems against new technology and methods
- pooling/total holistic solution, how do you decide the value of each strategy
setting up these incredibly complex and holistic structures both financially & operationally
- Methodologies for managing the aircraft asset as a whole different options for measuring appraisal/ depreciation
- Financial strategies for evaluating current assets and acquisition of necessary assets and operational strategies for optimum asset availability
- Best in class system information
- Case studies – highlighting success but also identifying the risks and challenges
- Actionable strategies to take back to your organization
