IFS Thought Leader Presentation: Notes from the Trenches: Airline and MRO Experience in IT System Modernization

Maintaining fleets of aircraft in a regulated environment is a complex function to which Information Technology (IT) systems have been applied for many decades.  Replacing these ageing systems offers the potential to improve outcomes by facilitating compliance and driving efficiencies in maintenance work planning and execution, all while reducing cost of ownership.  Given the large amounts of data involved and the number of maintenance and engineering staff impacted, great care is required in planning, preparation and system implementation.  In this session you will hear first-hand from airlines that have recently completed or are actively rolling out new digital MRO solutions.  Topics covered will include business case drivers, selection criteria, implementation challenges, early returns and lessons learned.

This session will be introduced by a host from IFS, which will be followed by two presentations by senior airline representatives. The session will end with a Q&A.

3:55 – 4:25pm:
