February / March / April 2008


Qantas Defence Services (QDS) brings together all defence related maintenance, repair and overhaul activities carried out by Qantas and continues the long history of Qantas successfully supporting the Australian Defence Forces. At the Richmond RAAF Base in New South Wales, Qantas Defence Services is currently using FileMaker Pro 9 as its principle database management tool to manage a fleet of 24 C130 Hercules transport aircraft through their deep maintenance cycle.

FileMaker Pro 9 works as one of the elements of the company's broader sophisticated aircraft maintenance management system-VIPER-developed by Fallon Project Management. VIPER integrates the prudential processes needed to ensure every aircraft servicing is 100% complete with an effective scheduling and management control system built around the integrated ACOS +1 project management tool.

Gerry Roberts, Business Unit Manager - C130 Program Manager, Qantas Defence Services commented, "The most recent version of VIPER has delivered a key benefit with the creation of an Earned Value Management Tool; made possible by the closely coupled FileMaker database and the project management component: ACOS, developed by German company Thekrasoft GmbH. This is unique in Australia and allows us to control our costs and schedule accurately, confident that we have an objective measure of actual work achieved based on the integration of cost, schedule, technology and performance."
