FedEx Streamlines Maintenance

Sept. 18, 2008
The new solution will help FedEx increase the efficiency and consistency of aircraft maintenance and repair and overhaul (MRO) shops.

FedEx recently announced its selection of Enigma's 3C Platform to streamline maintenance and service operations for its entire fleet of aircraft. With more than 800 aircraft in its global fleet, FedEx is the largest airline in the world. The solution will serve over 7,000 internal end-users and thousands of third party maintainers worldwide.

The solution will help FedEx increase the efficiency and consistency of aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) shops and assist line maintenance technicians. The first phase of the project provides custom job card generation and distribution for scheduled and unscheduled maintenance. The second phase will focus on managing OEM maintenance revisions and publish service information for the entire FedEx fleet. By using Enigma's services oriented architecture (SOA), FedEx will be able to integrate maintenance information with other systems such as inventory, scheduling, configuration management, onboard diagnostics and editing systems.

"FedEx has the largest and most diverse aircraft fleet in the world, with a very strong IT and engineering organization to support it," said Jonathan Yaron, CEO of Enigma, a provider of aftermarket service and support technology

Proper maintenance of the growing FedEx aircraft fleet is critical to the company's core mission of providing on-time deliveries. The Enigma implementation will accelerate MRO activities, increasing the number of aircraft that are in service, and will provide an open architecture that fully integrates the maintenance and engineering department with the rest of the company.
