Enigma Software Helps FedEx Streamline Aircraft Maintenance

Enigma will help manage OEM maintenance revisions and publish service information for the entire FedEx fleet.


BURLINGTON, Mass. - September 16, 2008 - Enigma Inc., the leader in aftermarket service and support technology, today announced that FedEx (NYSE: FDX) has selected the Enigma 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 Enigma solution is being deployed out of FedEx’s headquarters in Memphis, Tennessee, and will serve over 7,000 internal end-users and thousands of third party maintainers worldwide.

FedEx uses the Enigma solution to increase the efficiency and consistency of aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) shops and line maintenance technicians. The first phase of the project is in use, providing custom job card generation and distribution for scheduled and unscheduled maintenance. In the second phase, Enigma will help manage OEM maintenance revisions and publish service information for the entire FedEx fleet. With Enigma’s services oriented architecture (SOA), FedEx can integrate maintenance information with other systems such as inventory, scheduling, configuration management, onboard diagnostics and editing systems. FedEx also plans to use Enigma technology in various other applications.

“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. “Enigma’s selection by FedEx is a major milestone for expanding our solution within the aerospace and aviation industries, and a tremendous vote of confidence in our technology and product strategy.”

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.
