IFS Maintenix Operator Edition

Integrated aviation maintenance management software

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

Engineering and compliance management

A high performing aircraft maintenance and engineering organization is built upon a solid foundation of Engineering and Compliance. The IFS Maintenix Operator Edition is built with these capabilities as its core.

This drives the following tangible outcomes for our customers:

  • 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
  • Perform comprehensive analysis on rich transactional data inside IFS Maintenix to identify trends and support fact-based decision making to drive continuous improvement in your maintenance program and maintenance practices

Line, heavy and shop maintenance

IFS Maintenix Operator Edition improves efficiency and predictability in all areas of aircraft maintenance. This is achieved through tailored planning and control capabilities for each maintenance environment, and by bringing the tools and information to the mechanics where they perform their work.

  • Direct communications between line technicians and maintenance control provides real-time views of latest work assignments and status, helping simplify ad hoc decision-making and troubleshooting
  • Collaborative deferral management capability for fast, effective and recorded decision making
  • Real time 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)
  • Visibility into the status of an entire heavy maintenance visit, with drill down to view and adjust the work to be performed on a shift, by a crew, or by a technician
  • Repair standards and automated shop routing to streamline the component repair process
  • Electronic signatures support, safeguarding accountability and data integrity

Advanced maintenance planning

Planning in aviation maintenance occurs over multiple different time horizons, with different planning outcomes sought, and different granularity of planning occurring over these time horizons. IFS Maintenix Operator Edition helps build the best plans by tailoring the user experience and building tools optimized to each of these planning horizons.

  • Long range planning tools allow for the scheduling of large maintenance visits to available slot capacity utilizing rules-based automation, while allowing for rapid what-if analysis and scenario evaluation
  • Day of operations and short-term planning are supported with planning in context of both the flight plan, and available capacity to perform maintenance
  • Advanced search and filter capabilities allow for the rapid assembly of a heavy maintenance workscope and the evaluation of fit to the available maintenance window
  • Updates made by engineering are automatically 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

Supply chain and warehouse management

The goal of aviation supply chain and warehouse management is to deliver parts on time, but critical to aviation is to ensure delivery of the right part on time at the lowest cost possible. Given the high cost of components and a global network of maintenance locations, advanced material planning and control capabilities are a must. IFS Maintenix Operator Edition delivers this through:

  • Auto-reservation evaluates parts demands with latest maintenance plans and associated priorities 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, for optimal inventory use
  • Extensible framework for material planning enables use of internal algorithms, or adoption of external supply chain optimization tools
  • Procurement automation and Spec2000 procurement APIs allow for automatic low cost, high volume purchasing, so procurement teams can focus on high value purchasing
  • Quality control inspection requirements automatically flagged and controlled during shipping and receiving to streamline the part induction process while maintaining regulatory compliance
  • Warehouse management tasks like picks, putaways and transfers are managed through the network of warehouses and airport locations across the supply network

Technology and integration

IFS Maintenix Operator Edition is constructed using best in class and modern commercial off-the-shelf technologies and is built as a best in breed solution targeted at aircraft maintenance and engineering. Our leading-edge technology ensures that our customers can easily integrate into their broader IT landscape and deliver the mission critical service levels that are required by your stakeholders.

  • Standard Integration Connection points ensure that connectivity within your IT landscape are simple and low cost
  • Performance and scalability are best in class, allowing the largest aircraft operators in the world to consolidate their entire fleets on a single instance, providing real time total asset visibility
  • Security is a key focus in our development, with regular external auditing against common industry standards
  • High availability options are readily available and commonly deployed among our customers
