Middle East Propulsion Company (MEPC) has selected IFS Applications to support engine maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) at MEPC’s facility in Saudi Arabia.
IFS Application will help managing key operations such as MRO, finance, supply chain, document management, HR, and payroll at the facility which services aircraft engines for the Royal Saudi Air Force (RSAF), the companies announced in a joint statement Monday.
The MRO facility was opened in Riyadh. MEPC is the sole military engine shop in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and provides MRO support for the Pratt & Whitney F100 engines powering the Boeing F-15 fighter aircraft operated by the RSAF.
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.” Omari 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.” Luis Ortega, Managing Director for Middle East, Africa & South Asia at IFS said.
