Airbus customers receive information about the electrical systems of the aircraft through a customised set of wiring diagrams that provide the electrical definition for each aircraft. This information is stored inside the Wiring Diagram Manual (WDM). Even if the content of the WDM is exhaustive, its content is static and the access to complex electrical information is not adaptable to user needs.

The official Airbus browser to access all Technical Data is airnavX* which is accessible through AirbusWorld, the Airbus customer portal. GenEWIS is by nature fully embedded within airnavX, which allows efficient navigation between electrical data and all maintenance information such as maintenance tasks or fault isolation tasks.

With GenEWIS, technical data is moving from a static format (or digital 'books') to a digital on-line application generating interactive, on-demand diagrams enabling huge savings in time and effort. Technicians are able to simply launch an online request instead of having to manually search, consult and analyse the results from hundreds of design-to-print wiring diagrams.
This is the first on-demand application for technical data, paving the way for a digital technical data ecosystem with further on-demand developments planned in the future.
