Escape to victory

In a move that builds upon the success of its prior deployments, digital solutions provider PTC has announced the expansion of the use of its Servigistics® Service Parts Management SaaS solution by the United States Air Force (USAF) for its supply chain modernization program, ESCAPE

The expansion is a five-year definitive contract consisting of a one-year base period and four one-year options that are worth up to $95 million.

The USAF is leveraging Servigistics as the sole-source provider to plan and optimise its $76 billion service parts supply chain tuned to asset availability. For its part, Servigistics supports ESCAPE’s effort to modernize planning and forecasting, increase aircraft availability and improve mission support functions while investing taxpayer funding in optimal parts inventory.

Leslie Paulson, General Manager, Servigistics Business Unit, PTC said: “By embracing digital solutions like Servigistics, the USAF is transforming its service parts supply chain to optimise planning and logistics with its OEM network and strengthening the digital thread.”
