Complex Military Maintenance Repair
and Overhaul & Asset Management Solutions
In large and disparate organizations it is common place to find a selection of commercial off the shelf (COTS) solutions integrated with purpose built home-grown business software. The success of a COTS application must be measured by its fit for purpose functionality, its ease of use, and its ability to be integrated with other solutions. In this fast changing world it also has to offer users’ a low risk means of keeping ahead of technology by having the minimum of technology ‘lock-in’ and the capability to reapply integration scenarios as business processes change and data connectivity and transfer requirements alter. Our COTS solution is designed to enable a seamless co-existence with your existing systems and environments within complex and geographically dispersed, and often fragmented user networks.
Military Maintenance Repair and Overhaul
IFS Applications is built using the same principles employed by successful manufacturers—the production and assembly of components. This allows change and evolution within a software component without impacting on other software components within the solution. IFS Service-Oriented Component Architecture™ delivers the agility and ease of use found in service-oriented architectures; and the proven benefits of components and object orientation are combined to create a powerful architecture. This granular component approach provides a low risk and more agile access to individual data elements, their interconnectivity and maintenance.
