IFS Unveils Latest Version of IFS Maintenix Operator Edition for Airlines and Fleet Operators

New release addresses customers’ key business challenges and enables users to capitalise on greater operational efficiencies, better scalability and stronger security

July 31, 2018 - IFS, the global enterprise applications company, today announced the latest upgrade to its industry-leading aviation maintenance and engineering system, IFS Maintenix™ Operator Edition. The new release incorporates enhancements across all functional areas of maintenance management, including supply chain, engineering, maintenance execution, security and compliance.

Available immediately, the latest iteration of IFS Maintenix Operator Edition features:
  • Optimised parts management - IFS Maintenix Operator Edition now supports a more streamlined approach to transferring inventory between stores and work locations, enabling a faster and more efficient way of fulfilling parts requests to minimise maintenance delays
  • Automated follow-on maintenance - New “follow-on” task functionality helps engineering better manage the scheduling and planning of work orders initiated from a fault. Condition-based controls streamline and automate the process of managing complex deferrals and follow-on actions from structural repairs
  • Stronger work authorisation and compliance management - It is now possible to specify skill-level requirements for official sign-off of heavy maintenance job cards, as well as the independent inspection requirements for specific steps. These enhancements help ensure complex maintenance tasks are managed with a greater level of control and compliance
  • Improved system manageability - IFS has made significant investments in the underlying technology platform to drive greater scalability, stronger security and simplified deployment and ongoing support
  • Certified technology - In addition to updating its core technology to Java 8, IFS Maintenix Operator Edition has been certified on all currently-supported third-party software, ensuring customers are always running their mission-critical maintenance and engineering operations on latest technology standards
