IFS Applications and Software has won a $3.5 billion Lockheed Martin contract for 2,600 user licenses of IFS Applications modules for supply chain management, warehouse management, purchasing and other functionality.
The contract includes sustenance of more than 300,000 fielded Training Aids, Devices, Simulators and Simulations (TADSS), including live-fire ranges and instrumentation systems in support of the US Army TADSS Maintenance Program (ATMP) contract, IFS said in a statement Thursday.
IFS Applications will be used to ensure that materials, parts and resources are available to sustain these assets. As part of a subsequent phase, IFS will provide scheduling capabilities for mobile technicians servicing the assets.
"As a recognized leader in aerospace and defense software, IFS Applications will provide the logistics and supply chain functionality to support this contract," said Scott Helmer, President, Aerospace and Defense Business Unit at IFS.
"This solution will then be extended with IFS planning and scheduling optimization software, which will enable Lockheed Martin to rely on artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms to automate the real time management of mobile technicians according to shifting demands and priorities," he added.
