Middle East Propulsion Company (MEPC) selects IFS Applications for engine MRO support
IFS Applications will support engine maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) at MEPC’s facility in Riyadh, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, which services aircraft engines for the Royal Saudi Air Force
IFS, the global enterprise applications company, announces that Middle East Propulsion Company (MEPC) has selected IFS Applications™ to help manage key operations at its Riyadh facility such as MRO, finance, supply chain, document management, HR, and payroll.
In 2012, MEPC opened its state-of-the-art, 194,000 square-foot MRO facility in Riyadh, close to the city’s King Khalid International Airport. MEPC is the sole military engine shop in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and provides MRO support for the Pratt & Whitney F100 engines powering the Boeing F-15 fighter aircraft operated by the RSAF.
The IFS solution will allow MEPC to execute all aspects of its MRO operations, from hangar entry to exit—with integrated support for finance and HR. End-to-end visibility will extend across personal areas of responsibility, ensuring focus is kept on what is strategically important. Business intelligence is built into IFS Applications, enabling operators to analyze key performance indicators using predictive analytics to show the full impact of processes on overall MRO performance, as well as the effect a decision has on operations in real time.
“Rather than continuing to use a combination of different business systems, we required a single, integrated solution to manage our complete business operations at the critically important Riyadh facility,” said Abdullah Al Omari, Chief Executive Officer at MEPC. “The 360-degree visibility provided by IFS Applications allows us to maximize maintenance efficiency and react quickly to potential performance issues, which is important in the fast-paced military support environment.”
Luis Ortega, Managing Director for Middle East, Africa & South Asia at IFS added, “The selection of IFS Applications to support the MEPC facility, which is integral to military operations in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, demonstrates the strength of the engine MRO capability in IFS Applications. The RSAF is one of the most advanced fighting forces in the world, and we are delighted to be supporting MEPC with our market-leading engine MRO solution to keep its aircraft available and operational around the clock.”
