IFS Applications in Defense Industry

The products and services produced by defense industry companies are very complex due to the needs and quality levels of the sector and require high technology. At the same time, the products developed for the defense industry require many main or sub-industries to work together and therefore an effective coordination is required. Customers in the defense industry have defined criteria that cover the entire product life cycle from product development processes to product delivery and maintenance; They demand better quality / safer products, in a shorter time, in a more economical way, considering their post-production service and support needs. For defense industry companies, it is vital to ensure all these while maintaining competitive power and profitability. For this reason, the software developed for the management of the defense industry sector must be in a way to meet the needs and results of the mentioned complex systems.

Looking at the scope briefly summarized above, it will be easily seen that; On the one hand, closely following existing technologies and developing new technologies for needs, transforming these technologies into products, following the quality and reliability, which are indispensable criteria of Defense Industry, implementing regulations and regulations, product development, monitoring production processes and costs, putting the product into use Afterwards, due to factors such as logistics and service support, it can be clearly seen that more than one unit, organization, person and organization participated in the issue and extremely complex processes were passed. In the control and coordination of all these activities, new needs have arisen due to the fact that the human capacity is exceeded, the existing local and limited functions cannot be met with isolated information technologies, and in order to produce more economical and effective solutions to these needs, existing information technologies are integrated and New concepts and technologies such as Life Cycle Management (PLM), Systems Life Cycle Management (SLCM), which enable co-ordinated work, have been developed and used. In this context, NATO demonstrated the importance of the issue by determining the principles and objectives of using the Systems Life Cycle Management (SLCM) concept within NATO with a regulation that entered into force in 2006.

IFS Applications PLM (Project Lifecycle Management)

IFS, the leading software of the defense industry in the world and in our country, based on this concept and the systems developed for them, in any defense industry project or product development process; It is a business practice that provides an integrated, coordinated, effective and coordinated working environment for all activities from the concept stage to the end of life, ensuring optimum results in an error-free, timely and most economical manner.

In a typical life cycle, there are Management, R&D, Purchasing, Quality, Production, Service, Sales and their suppliers or subcontractors with whom these units are in contact with the relevant authority or customers. These activities can take place only within the organization of an organization, and will require co-ordinated work between organizations in different geographies as well as in international projects. IFS Applications can manage the Project Lifecycle Management method in a certain flow of all these components.

Engineering, Design and Document Management

Defense industry projects often have a complex structure in which mechanical, electronic and software systems must be included. Even if each of these systems is developed on a different platform, it is a necessity to securely share the data of these systems among the relevant individuals and units. IFS is able to meet this need by providing the necessary coordination with its Engineering solutions without causing any loss of time. With the Project Product Structure (PBS), each stage of the design is created in a defined / defined way in the system, and the entire product can be defined on a system basis. All required documents can be added to the PBS structure on a revision basis and managed. All documents can be accessed, approved and distributed according to the specified authorization sets.

Change and Configuration Management

All this design / engineering work includes change management. Changes that will occur during product development are inevitable, and all changes in the system are monitored on a revision basis and can be managed in an integrated manner with product supply and production processes. Updates made in Project Product Structures (PBS) are instantly communicated in the system by all design, production, service and support teams, and product configurations, which are systematically managed and their changes are monitored over time, are automatically updated. In this way, it is possible to reduce repetitive errors, synchronize engineering, production and service Bill of Materials, coordinate the contents of different engineering units and more advanced decision-making processes.

Series, Lot number, NATO stock number, product configuration number, etc. After many data are defined in the material definition process, they can be used in supply production quality and service processes. Again, this information is used in Integrated (Integrated) Logistics Support processes.

Integrated (Integrated) Logistics Support

Integrated Logistics Support (ELD) activities are carried out to ensure that all the supportability criteria that the system will need throughout its life cycle are carried out under a single roof, its operation is cost-effective and the design is directed accordingly. This subject is an important field of activity in defense industry projects. Integrated Logistics Support activities consist of Logistics Support Analysis (LDA), Logistics Support Analysis Records (LDAK) Reliability, Readiness and Sustainability (RAM: Reliability, Availability Maintainability) Analysis studies. The storage, analysis and reporting of the data subject to all these analyzes and studies are provided within IFS.

Project Management Procurement and Production

An effective planning and scheduling tool is needed for all these activities to be carried out in a planned and coordinated manner. IFS project management modules provide an ideal environment for this. Unlike conventional planning and scheduling software, the activities that make up the project; Since it is associated with supply items, work orders and documents, it enables more comprehensive and object-based planning. So every plan made; It works in direct connection with activities such as design, procurement and production and changes occurring in the plan are immediately reflected in the relevant purchasing and production orders and therefore in the relevant units. Project exceptions etc. With reporting tools, it is possible to analyze how delays in the plan relate to which materials and works on an activity basis. Similarly, it is possible to instantly see which activities will affect a delay in logistics, and thus, a pro-active project management is provided.

Again, project costs can be tracked on an activity basis, and project budgets can be followed instantly in the budget module.

IFS continues to provide fully integrated, timely and cost-effective management of companies with the projects it has developed based on the PLM approach in its solutions for defense industry companies.
