PLANO, Texas, 10 April 2007. Military Air Solutions, a business group of BAE Systems, has selected Teamcenter software from UGS Corp., a provider of product lifecycle management (PLM) software and services, as its enterprise knowledge management technology for specific aircraft platforms within its group.

Military Air Solutions will use UGS' Teamcenter to support its business model of providing enhanced post-production support for customers' aircraft. Teamcenter will serve as the foundation for Military Air Solutions' maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) solution and will manage all of the product configurations for an individual aircraft -- from design to disposal. It will also serve as a virtual knowledge manager, integrating data and functions associated with aircraft engineering and post-delivery service and support.

Military Air Solutions will use Teamcenter is to ensure the British Ministry of Defence (MoD) has its required aircraft fleet available for operational use at any given time. Using UGS' PLM technology, Military Air Solutions' in-service personnel will have global access to product data that will help predict maintenance activities and requirements for spare parts, thus reducing aircraft downtime.

"BAE Systems is moving toward greater involvement in the life support of its products by working in partnership with its principal customer," Graham Malley, BAE Systems' PLM Program manager, says. "With the lifespan of an aircraft typically expanding to more than 50 years, managing complex data needed to build, modify, repair and operate the aircraft is a challenging task."
