Press release date: January 21, 2014

San Diego, CA – EPCOR, a wholly owned AFI KLM E&M (Air France Industries KLM Engineering and Maintenance) subsidiary dedicated to total support of Auxiliary Power Units (APU) and Pneumatic Components, is driving LEAN MRO operations with the aviation industry's preferred software solution, Quantum Control™. EASA and FAR 145 accredited, EPCOR's engineering experts continuously work on APU and APU component development while also providing repair and overhaul for air cycle machines, environmental control system components, engine starters, leading edge flap drive units, and other pneumatic components, all supported by a worldwide logistics network.

EPCOR selected Quantum MRO & Logistics software to run its operations for several significant reasons:

• Component Control was very open to collaborating with EPCOR to develop the Quantum Shop Control module that is specifically made to comprehensively manage aircraft MRO of components and their associated quality control requirements.
• EPCOR could integrate all of their business software into Quantum to have a single repository of business data to quickly search and respond to business needs.
• Component Control's software improvement philosophy meant that Quantum would be a living software that adapted over time to encompass evolving industry best practices

Commented Joost Bosman, Quantum Program Manager at EPCOR, "With Quantum, EPCOR has operations software optimized specifically for running a LEAN aviation MRO environment. The ongoing successful use of Quantum at EPCOR has resulted in parent company AFI KLM E&M leveraging Quantum to automate surplus part sales and streamline corresponding background logistics."

Quantum Control™ is a fully integrated business software solution. Developed specifically for aviation MRO, Manufacturing and Logistics organisations, it promotes best practices and improves business processes with a single database integrated solution that can be flexibly deployed as a dedicated in-house system, or be hosted via a third-party cloud. Quantum Control's personalized configuration settings provide individual users with an intuitive interface which improves the bottom line through optimized productivity.

The Quantum Control MRO and Logistics solution installed at EPCOR operates on a highly scalable and secure Oracle™ database and includes a range of logistics and business modules.
