Emirates selects IFS Applications to manage new engine overhaul facility
IFS, the global enterprise applications company, reported that Emirates has selected IFS Applications 8 to manage its new engine overhaul facility in Dubai, UAE. The solution will support all business processes including maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO), and corporate performance management (CPM). The contract includes licenses and services worth in excess of US$6m. In 2011, Emirates announced the construction of Asia’s most technically sophisticated engine overhaul facility in Dubai. The facility will cover 90,000 m² and will serve as Emirates’ in-house engine overhaul facility. IFS Applications will support all operations at the overhaul facility, which, when fully operational, will service up to 300 engines per year. The solution includes IFS’s Complex Assembly MRO feature, which has previously been delivered to Finnair and Alitalia Maintenance Systems. The solution also offers advanced CPM capabilities and integrated support for finance and HR.
