Aircraft definition, the ACE way

Inherently complex and multi-faceted, the configuration of aircraft and passenger cabins is a massive undertaking, not only because of the sheer number of available options and the highly consequential decisions required at every turn. The process also involves different work tribes with different professional cultures, which must find some common ground to collaborate efficiently.

Pacelab ACE is a comprehensive digital environment, which helps aircraft buyers, manufacturers and suppliers to efficiently navigate the elaborate aircraft configuration process in a single, clearly structured workflow. It combines server-based business logic, web-based client applications and industry-proven configuration capabilities with the latest communication and collaboration technologies to create a modern digital user experience on tablets, smartphones and other mobile devices.

Single data source for all solution components


Server-based business logic

Pacelab ACE's business logic is server-based and provides a native multi-platform network to support collaboration within the extended enterprise but also with external stakeholders. All solution components draw on a single, shared data source, ensuring that everyone involved in the aircraft definition process works with the same, up-to-date configuration and project data.

Seamless integration

Pacelab ACE’s open architecture enables our software to seamlessly integrate into your existing IT environment. We initialize the digital thread in your organization and continuously add to it by pushing configuration data into your design and manufacturing systems, by feeding enterprise data lakes and by integrating with your PDM systems in both directions.

Connect mobile work teams all over the world

Web-based configuration

Pacelab ACE delivers a continuous digital user experience on tablets, smartphones and other mobile devices, which provides full access to configuration and customer data from anywhere in the world. This makes it much easier for geographically dispersed teams to communicate and align on configuration details in real time.

Custom-branded electronic catalogs

Intuitive, easy-to-browse digital catalogs help buyers select their preferred aircraft and cabin options and combine them interactively to find the configuration that best reflects their brand and commercial strategy. Providing airlines with access to browser-based configuration tools significantly increases customer engagement and generates business analytics which can be used to optimized future sales & marketing initiatives.

Create customer experiences that last - and generate sales

We are part of Microsoft's Mixed Reality Partner Program (MRPP), which supports innovative HoloLens application and content providers from all across the globe.

Supported by Microsoft MR experts and engineers, we're exploring how HoloLens headsets can be used to give airline buyers a better understanding of the appearance and spatial quality of the cabin, moving customers from merely seeing to fully experiencing aircraft configurations and assessing the impacts of their selections in real time.

We can leverage your existing Pacelab ACE 3D assets with Pacelab WEAVR, our in-house AR/VR/MR authoring, management and publishing platform.

Tying the digital thread

The digital transformation of the aircraft configuration process is not only about digitizing paper-based workflows, it’s about enabling aircraft manufacturers and suppliers to re-invent their business operations and take their relationship with airline customers to the next level.
