Register to view this on-demand webinar (recorded 14th December 2023) to discover, via a full demo of the IFS Engine MRO solution, how the latest developments in cloud-based Engine MRO management software provide MROs, airlines, and operators with the digital tools, data and real-time functionality needed to control and simplify the end-to-end processes and complexities of an Engine Shop visit. As you will see, IFS Engine MRO is an industry tailored solution (designed around a gate approach for best practice methodology) that provides end-to-end support from shop visit work scoping to execution to inventory management through to re-delivery and all supporting processes. During the Webinar IFS Cloud experts will take you on a demo of the solution from the perspective of both a work package planner and shop floor engineer. You will see how the planner builds an optimum work package utilizing automation and outcome-based simulations to control the release of disassembly and assembly task cards, and manage scope of parts removed from the engine, the list of SBs and ADs to be applied during the shop visit and complex LLPs, plus managing and monitoring customer changes. Next you will see how the shop floor engineer can utilize the latest mobile technology to collaborate with and share faults in real-time with remote experts; plus, how the solution automates and provides the engineer with data driven answers to key questions such as: should a part repair be carried out in-house or be sent for an external repair? should a part be scrapped? what about LLPs and modifications? You will also see how automated repair-code mapping, built around historical data and OEM manuals, provides engineers with pro-active repair suggestions for previously complex procedures.
The Webinar is divided into 4 key sections:
- IFS Products Overview, plus IFS Engine MRO Solution; MRO Industry Challenges
The Webinar begins with a quick overview of IFS, before a more detailed look at IFS Engine MRO which, as you will see, covers the depth and breadth of the entire MRO process, from the opportunity management to Bidding & Quoting to Executing to Contract, and finally through Release, Invoicing, and Reporting. You will then learn about industry challenges facing MROs, and specifically labour shortages for qualified technicians. You will see how IFS Engine MRO provides MROs, airlines, and operators with the digital tools, data and functionality needed to control and simplify the end-to-end processes and complexities of an Engine Shop visit, thereby enhancing efficiency and mitigating labour shortages.
- IFS Engine MRO Demo 1: Shop Planner – Build a Work Package with Automation
The first demo you will see showcases how, with planning driven automation and outcome-based simulations, the Planner can build the optimum work packages. Traditional challenges for planners with setting up an Engine Shop Visit, have included multiple data sources arriving with the engine (Engine IPC, Engine Shop Manual, LLPs, Modifications, etc.), complex LLP removal, what modifications are needed (SB’s and AD’s), plus changes to the work scope from the customer, and tracking and monitoring the changes throughout the shop cycle. The demo will show how the solution guides the planner through the process, largely automating previously complex decisions such as selecting modifications and life limited parts to be removed which are added to the work order.
- IFS Engine MRO Demo 2: Shop Engineer – Auto Repair Mapping & Pro-Active Repair Suggestions
Next, the demo will move to the shop floor to see how an engineer utilizes advanced functionality, such as pro-active repair suggestions and automated repair-code mapping, to make maintenance execution more efficient. Traditionally, the engineer has faced complex decisions during the engine disassembly phase which can have impact further down the Engine repair chain, such as should a part repair be carried out in-house or be sent for an external repair? should a part be scrapped? what about LLPs and modifications?
You will also see how automated repair-code mapping, built around historical data and OEM manuals, provides engineers with pro-active repair suggestions to these questions and how automated work scopes are generated for internal and external repairs, plus how the system auto identifies the modification applicability regarding SBs and ADs and drives compliance.
- IFS Engine MRO Demo 3: Shop Engineer – Mobile Remote Collaboration with Experts
Finally, you will see how engineers can use mobile technology to remotely collaborate with experts from the point of work to further benefit execution, enabling reliable decisions. Traditionally, the conventional way when an engineer needs guidance is to write down the findings and take pictures to share in an email to the relevant technical services expert. The expert will then send a reply later or the next day, so the process can take a long time as well as generate human errors. During the Demo you will see the IFS remote assistance App, and how this can connect the engineer to the technical services expert in real-time. You will also see how the App shows historical data and calls.
About the Aircraft IT Webinar Series:
Every 2 weeks the Aircraft IT website hosts a different live Webinar, each Webinar hosted by a different IT Vendor. These sessions represent the perfect opportunity to learn about a software solution in a more informal manner and to quickly gain an in-depth knowledge of all the major systems on the market, all from the comfort of your own office or home with no sales pressure.
The IT vendor provides a live software demonstration/masterclass of their solution and explains how it can benefit airlines, MROs, Operators, OEMs, Leasing Companies. Once logged on, online delegates can ask questions via the interactive sections of the Webinar or simply sit back and watch and listen to the demonstration. There are two sessions during the day, each differently times to accommodate all time zones.
Each Webinar session is recorded, and an On-Demand version is then posted back to the Aircraft IT website a few days after the live session to allow you to view the content again with your colleagues. The library of On-Demand Webinar recordings provides an invaluable reference source of Flight Operations software demonstrations from the World’s leading Flight Operations IT Vendors.
