IFS, the global enterprise applications company, has launched IFS Maintenix™ Fleet Planner and IFS Maintenix Line Planner, two Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions designed to help commercial operators of all sizes boost the efficiency of their long-range and line maintenance planning, make the most effective use of available maintenance resources, and drive greater aircraft operational availability.
The launch represents the first in a series of SaaS-based IFS Maintenix solutions geared specifically for the mission-critical maintenance and engineering needs of the global commercial aviation market.
Commercial aviation is witnessing an unprecedented growth in fleet sizes worldwide. Key to an operator’s success is delivering the best maintenance plans that align closely with operational performance objectives while adhering to critical safety requirements.
IFS Maintenix Fleet Planner is designed to help generate more effective long-range plans for heavy maintenance activities and reduce the manual effort of keeping them up-to-date. It quickly and automatically generates simple or complex fleet maintenance plans, and gives users the ability to compare plans against key performance indicators, model ‘what if’ scenarios, and publish to production. These efficiency gains ensure decision-makers have the time and insight to choose the best possible plan and quickly react to schedule changes.
IFS Maintenix Line Planner enables planners to efficiently create, maintain and communicate an executable line maintenance plan. The solution helps drive greater efficiencies by focusing attention on high priority items and identifying the cause of maintenance issues, such as lack of parts, labour or special tools. Through automated workflows, IFS Maintenix Line Planner empowers users to more readily react to last-minute schedule changes and maximise line operational capability, maintenance task yield, and network resources.
Both IFS Maintenix solutions work seamlessly with any maintenance and engineering software system, and are deployed in a SaaS environment, enabling organisations to quickly and cost-effectively capitalise on innovative solutions to meet the evolving business needs of their maintenance management operations, while easily scaling in lockstep with changes to organisational and aircraft fleet plans.Email Post to a Friend
