Bangkok--13 Aug--Spark Communications
Comprehensive ERP solution will improve accuracy of maintenance information available to engineers on the ground

IFS, the global enterprise applications company, announces that the Directorate of Aeronautical Engineering (DAE), Royal Thai Air Force has chosen to deploy IFS Applications™ to manage the maintenance of the Force's fleet of 25 F-5E/F fighter planes' jet engines.

The DAE required a solution with strong maintenance capabilities to manage its fleet of fighter planes that includes operating 47 J85-GE-21B/C jet engines. The organization chose IFS Applications to support its ongoing maintenance processes and to ensure availability of the aircraft at all times. The local consultancy support which IFS is able to provide also played a key role in the RTAF's decision.

The DAE has moved from a combination of legacy and paper-based systems to IFS Applications 8 with the further possibility of later taking advantage of increased mobility within the IFS solution. By eliminating the manual and paper-based processes, the DAE will significantly improve the accuracy of maintenance information available to engineers on the ground. IFS Applications will also assist the RTAF in managing processes with third party suppliers, and improving collaboration to ensure that the right part is available at the right time.

"We chose IFS Applications because it offered us a comprehensive and proven industry solution that could help standardize our maintenance processes across the entire fleet," the Directorate of Aeronautical Engineering commented. "We were particularly impressed with the user interface of IFS Applications, and the solution is also being delivered in local language which is a huge bonus for us in ensuring ease-of-use within the Air Force. IFS has a proven track record in the aerospace and defense industry and being the number one global provider of EAM solutions to this market, we had great confidence in selecting IFS as our preferred solution."

"IFS has seen positive double-digit growth across Thailand for the past five or six years, and this is a key region for future growth for the company. This is a key aerospace and defense organization in this region and is a testament to the company's global expertise in this industry," said Sridharan Arumugam, Vice President, IFS South-East Asia. "We are pleased to support the Royal Thai Air Force and look forward to a long and mutually rewarding relationship."

IFS expects the customer to go live with the first phase of implementation at the Engine Maintenance Division, DAE at Don Muang Air Force Base in January 2016. The solution will then be rolled out to Wing 21 in Ubon Ratchathani Royal Thai Air Force base, which is the home of F-5E/F fighter plane.
