Forward/Line Maintenance (FLM) ConfigurationΒΆ


The Forward/Line Maintenance (FLM) solution enables forward/line maintenance teams to perform maintenance activities from preparing for aircraft arrival, recording maintenance and deferring faults, to releasing an aircraft, via the IFS Cloud Web and IFS Cloud Mobile user interfaces.

In IFS Cloud 22R2 the FLM solution can only be deployed as non-integrated with Maintenix.

The Forward/Line Maintenance components in IFS Cloud are as follows:

  • ADCOM - This consists of web pages, used by administrators to manage basic data information related to Forward/Line Maintenance and to define settings related to the display of information for technicians.
  • ADMON - This consists of web pages used by administrators to monitor communication, notably the status of the synchronization of requests between the Forward/Line Maintenance applications and Maintenix, when an integration to Maintenix is supported.
  • FLMEXE - This consists of web pages used by line technicians and maintenance supervisors to carry out line maintenance activities.
  • FLM - This consists of pages on the Forward/Line Maintenance mobile application, which is used by technicians. For information related to the Forward/Line Maintenance mobile application see IFS Mobile Forward/Line Maintenance.
