IFS Maintenix Operator Edition

The seamless operation of an aviation organization depends on maintaining the synchronization of multiple inputs in support of a single goal: an airworthy asset. The right aviation maintenance management software solution helps aviation organizations ensure asset availability and ongoing quality, while at the same time providing you with the tools and data you need to achieve long-term performance objectives and track current maintenance projects.

IFS Maintenix Operator Edition offers aircraft operators an integrated system for real-time data visibility to enable improved decision-making, quick response to change, and assured compliance on asset release:

  • Enable rapid return to service
  • Eliminate material delays
  • Maintain fleet airworthiness in real time
  • Maximize availability and reduce cost through better planning
  • Drive continuous improvement in your maintenance operation

Solution intégrée de gestion de la maintenance pour l'aviation

Le fonctionnement fluide d'une organisation aéronautique dépend de la bonne synchronisation de multiples données au service d'un seul objectif : un actif en parfait état de navigation. Une solution de gestion de la maintenance efficace doit aider les organisations aéronautiques à assurer la disponibilité des actifs et une qualité constante, tout en leur fournissant les outils et les données dont elles ont besoin pour atteindre leurs objectifs de performance à long terme.

IFS Maintenix Operator Edition fournit aux opérateurs d'aéronefs un système entièrement intégré qui assure une visibilité sur les données en temps réel, favorisant des prises de décision plus efficaces, une réponse plus rapide face aux changements et une conformité garantie lors de la remise en service des appareils :

  • Remise en service rapide - L’échange d’informations et la communication efficaces entre les différents départements impliqués dans la maintenance permettent de maximiser les heures de vol et de réduire les délais de maintenance, et donc de générer plus de chiffre d'affaires pour chaque appareil. 
  • Élimination des retards de pièces - Les stratégies d'automatisation du traitement des commandes de pièces permettent d'optimiser la réactivité de la chaîne d'approvisionnement et de répondre efficacement à des objectifs de service et de compétitivité toujours plus élevés.
  • Maintien de la navigabilité de la flotte - La planification et la gestion flexibles de la navigabilité de la flotte minimise l’impact sur les opérations de vol quotidiennes. 

IFS Maintenix Operator Edition comes complete with fully-integrated modular functionality that collectively spans the full spectrum of aviation maintenance management:

Maintenance Operations Control

  • Intuitive dashboard helps planners manage assigned aircraft’s serviceability throughout day of operations
  • Direct communications with line technicians provides real-time views of latest work assignments and status, helping simplify ad hoc decision-making and troubleshooting
  • Real-time work updates streamline shift handovers, with outstanding defects, latest requisitions, orders and shift notes available immediately for delivery to incoming technicians
  • Ability to automatically update records, including maintenance scheduling, when corrections are made to a past flight

Optimized Line & Heavy Maintenance

  • Work assignment matches aircraft with only those line technicians qualified for the tasks, ensuring accountability and compliance
  • Direct access into supply chain verifies correct parts and tools are available on location, minimizing delays that might ultimately lead to an aircraft on ground (AOG)
  • Anywhere/anytime access to valid configuration and maintenance history expedites work turnaround
  • Direct communications platform between technician and Maintenance Operations & Production Control for easier troubleshooting
  • Electronic signatures support, safeguarding accountability and data integrity

Advanced Maintenance Planning

  • Multi-horizon line, long-range and production planning delivers information relevant to the specific timelines in play
  • Ensures optimal use of parts and labor across all maintenance work, mitigating AOGs
  • Engineering updates are applied across all aircraft fleet and associated task deadlines, enabling managers to focus on planning work instead of determining what work needs to be planned
  • Task resource lists are automatically assembled from engineering definition or defect record, expediting plan build and ensuring effective execution
  • Ability to define weight and balance impacts of maintenance activities so that changes to the operating empty weight and balance can be reflected as soon as maintenance is completed

Integrated Materials Management

  • Auto-reservation feature evaluates parts demands with latest plans to ensure accurate parts fulfillment, enabling material planners to focus on managing exceptions
  • Alternate check feature identifies where alternate parts are available to expand fulfillment, in line with aircraft’s engineering definition, ensuring optimal inventory use

A Connected Workforce

  • Collaborative deferral management capability for fast, effective and recorded decision making
  • Real-time at-risk aircraft/AOG monitoring provides current status at a glance
  • Faster time to resolution by raising or closing faults and releasing aircraft
  • Reduce non-productive time by eliminating paper, double entry of tasks and the churn caused by transcription errors

Centralized Governance

  • Complete in-service asset configuration management, tracking and reporting enables improved data accuracy and full compliance traceability, from engineering through to execution
  • Creation and enforcement of engineering rules and policies across the entire maintenance organization makes it easier for planners, mechanics and materials personnel to understand and confidently follow specified procedures

Aviation Analytics

  • Perform comprehensive analysis on rich transactional data inside IFS Maintenix to identify trends and support fact-based decision making
  • Using built-in or third-party tools, analysts can explore data at different levels of granularity, drill down to a specific aircraft or component, and create dynamic visualizations for data exploration
