Rolls-Royce chooses IFS in order to exchange engine data

Rolls-Royce has chosen Maintenix from IFS for exchanging engine data with airlines operating Rolls-Royce Trent engines, including the Trent 1000, Trent XWB and Trent 7000.

The IFS Maintenix solution will help Rolls-Royce and its customers share data, the company says.

The IFS Maintenix Aviation Analytics capability enables the automated provision of field data, which ensures that Rolls-Royce receives timely and accurate information.

IFS Maintenix then acts as a gateway to automatically push maintenance programme changes from Rolls-Royce back to the airline operator.

It’s claimed that as a result, life-limited engine part maintenance deadlines can be updated based on actual operating conditions and life consumed by each engine in use.

Richard Goodhead, Rolls-Royce, SVP Marketing – Civil Aerospace, said: “Ease of data sharing is a key component in the Rolls-Royce IntelligentEngine vision, which sees a future in which our aero engines are increasingly connected, contextually aware, and even comprehending.

“Working with IFS Maintenix to ensure we receive accurate and timely engine life data will help us as we make further progress toward that objective by helping us deliver greater levels of reliability and efficiency to our operators.”
