The IFS solution, to be deployed in the cloud, will provide long range planners with the unified information insights they need to quickly develop and share regulatory-compliant fleet maintenance plans that best support aircraft availability, task yield, and hangar utilisation for nearly 200 aircraft.

The IFS fleet planning solution replaces a JAL Engineering Co., Ltd. legacy fleet maintenance planning process that required extensive manual intervention. The IFS solution will allow the engineering team to manage more aircraft with reduced human intervention due to an efficient user experience, reduction in manual processes, real-time alerts and automated processes.

Deployed in the cloud, IFS's planning and maintenance solution will improve visibility across the organisation by providing real time planning updates. JAL Engineering Co., Ltd. staff will now be able to effectively examine the impact of key strategic decisions in the organisation - such as modifying aircraft induction/retirement, adjusting resource levels or changing utilisation levels - while also comparing key performance indicators.

IFS continues to grow its footprint in the Asia-Pacific commercial aviation and maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) market, adding JAL Engineering Co., Ltd. alongside China Airlines, Qantas, TAE Aerospace and more.

"After an extensive market review, JAL Engineering Co., Ltd. selected IFS for its experience in the industry, strong existing reference customers and its complementary fit with our long-term MRO strategy," explained Ryo Tamura, President, JAL Engineering Co., Ltd. "With IFS fleet maintenance planning software JAL Engineering Co., Ltd.  can automate processes that were previously manual and labor intensive, improve team collaboration by allowing planners to work on a single plan simultaneously and ultimately decrease aircraft downtime and maximise task yield."

Gerry Fosnick, President, IFS Japan, added "This latest selection affirms the fact that IFS is trusted by some of the world's leading airlines and MRO providers to support fleet-wide maintenance planning and operations. We look forward to working with JAL Engineering Co., Ltd. to better manage its long-range fleet maintenance plans now and into the future."
