The Requirement

From IFS all-rounders to niche module specialists, it’s our job as IFS recruitment experts to know the right people. What makes us different? It’s our unique vantage point that makes us different. With in-depth insight into the IFS market, our positioning allows us to recognise opportunities that might otherwise go amiss. Our proactivity is how we provided one client with a solution to a niche resource problem. 

In the thick of an APPs 10 Aurena implementation, this business in the Aerospace and Defence industry had reached a critical stage where the project was overdue specialist manufacturing resource. Having tried finding a suitable candidate for nearly 6 weeks, the in-house recruitment department along with their internal resource partner hadn’t managed to source a consultant who could specialise solely in MRP (Material Resource Planning). That’s when we approached them, offering them the support they needed.

Main Objectives

  • Go live with apps 10 Aurena within the UK and in one other country abroad.
  • Processes within the manufacturing areas of the business work optimally.
  • Clear communication with key project (solution architect and PM) ensuring all project leads were on task and working to project timelines.

Project Progress

MRP Specialist

What was the client looking for? The business needed a certified IFS Manufacturing consultant who not only specialised in IFS Material Resource Planning (MRP) but had had implementation experience on APPs 10 / Aurena. When IT Works stepped in, we tapped into our network of specialists built over 20 years and sourced 5 qualified candidates who were interested in the role. Happy with the options provided, the client then shortlisted 3 profiles to take to interview. At the interview stage, the client decided who would be the best fit regarding location, experience, and skillset.

Eventually, the client narrowed their preference down to just one and offered the role to a contractor who has been in the IFS market for 16 years (APPS 7 through to IFS Cloud).

MRP Support

Embedding themselves in the team, the IFS MRP Consultant hit the ground running. Providing specialist MRP support, the manufacturing expert hired helped calculate requirements for parts that used information from master scheduling, manufacturing structures, and inventory data. With the rollout happening across multiple sites globally, having an experienced MRP consultant ensured project deadlines were pulled back in line with initial plans and other potential setbacks mitigated.

Hiring Talent



The Result

Having specialist resource in place, the business was able to save the project with go-live deadlines to be hit without any delays. By partnering with IT Works Recruitment, the interview to onboarding process only took a week. In total, we saved our client 6 weeks’ worth of time conducting interviews, sifting through CVs, and time spent off the project. With the right person onboard, the project year planned was completed within a 6-month period. 

Having successfully implemented IFS APPs 10 across multiple sites, the contractor has now been extended from their initial 6-month period and has been kept on board for the next phase of the IFS Cloud implementation project.
