M7 Aerospace Chooses Cross-Site Manufacturing Software from IFS


Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
IFS
: 11 February, 2010  (Application Story)
With 7 Business Units, Maintenance and Aero Structures Manfufacturing, M7’s complex environment will be managed on a single database using IFS Applications
IFS has announced that M7 Aerospace LP, of San Antonio, Texas, has selected IFS Applications to support its aviation services organization, which is involved with aero structures manufacturing, aircraft maintenance repair and overhaul (MRO) and other aircraft product support services.


M7 Aerospace has a long history of supporting aircraft fleets for the United States Military, including the C-20, C23 and C-26 aircraft. These support efforts require the staffing and coordination of the materials that are stationed with the aircraft worldwide. In addition to the military support programs, M7 Aerospace - as the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) - supports the entire fleet of 700 Fairchild Metro & Merlin aircraft for both commercial and military customers.

M7 Aerospace will implement IFS Applications’ Financials, Distribution, Manufacturing, Engineering and Human Resources. IFS Applications will replace M7 Aerospace’s existing legacy system.

M7 Aerospace’s growth in recent years has outpaced its current enterprise systems and as M7 Aerospace continues to experience growth and wins additional contracts it will need a fully integrated solution for support. This is why they looked to IFS for a reliable streamlined solution.

“We chose IFS Applications because it was the only system that offered M7 Aerospace LP the opportunity for all seven business units to be supported by one application, in a single database, for an effective price,” M7 Aerospace CEO Kevin Brown said. “We believe M7 will gain efficiencies and increase productivity with IFS Applications, as well as have visibility over its seven business units. With IFS we can penetrate new markets and enhance our presence with existing customers.”

“IFS continues to gain momentum in the aerospace and Defence industry because we provide an industry-specific solution that can be relied upon to support critical government programs and CLS contracts,” IFS North America President and CEO Cindy Jaudon said.

Aerospace and defense is one of IFS’ targeted market segments. IFS Applications includes advanced standard functionality that meets the demanding requirements of the armed forces. IFS’ fully integrated MRO, performance-based logistics (PBL), project management, fleet management, supply chain management, and other IFS Applications components help to ensure asset visibility, sustainment, and availability—three key objectives in managing weapons systems for optimal combat readiness. IFS also provides an industry-specific solution for defence manufacturers that helps companies manage the design, manufacturing, and ongoing spare parts logistics and maintenance support of complex products throughout the product lifecycle.
