MEPC selects IFS to run MRO operations
MEPC to improve management of maintenance services and business operations with IFS
Middle East Propulsion Company (MEPC) has selected IFS Applications to help manage key business operations at its Riyadh facility.
The IFS solutions will cover operations including MRO (maintenance, repair and operations), finance, supply chain, document management, HR, and payroll, to provide a unified set of solutions to enhance efficiency.
MEPC provides MRO services for the jet engines that power the Royal Saudi Air Force's (RSAF) fleet of F-15 fighter aircraft, from its facility King Khalid International Airport.
The IFS solution will allow MEPC to execute all aspects of its MRO operations, from hangar entry to exit, with integrated support for finance and HR. End-to-end visibility will extend across personal areas of responsibility, ensuring focus is kept on what is strategically important. Business intelligence is built into IFS Applications, enabling operators to analyze key performance indicators using predictive analytics to show the full impact of processes on overall MRO performance, as well as the effect a decision has on operations in real time.
"Rather than continuing to use a combination of different business systems, we required a single, integrated solution to manage our complete business operations at the critically important Riyadh facility," said Abdullah Al Omari, chief executive officer at MEPC. "The 360-degree visibility provided by IFS Applications allows us to maximize maintenance efficiency and react quickly to potential performance issues, which is important in the fast-paced military support environment."
Luis Ortega, managing director for Middle East, Africa & South Asia at IFS added: "The selection of IFS Applications to support the MEPC facility, which is integral to military operations in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, demonstrates the strength of the engine MRO capability in IFS Applications. The RSAF is one of the most advanced fighting forces in the world, and we are delighted to be supporting MEPC with our market-leading engine MRO solution to keep its aircraft available and operational around the clock."
