MTU Aero Engines Integrates Knowledge Management with IntraFind

With IntraFind and the integration of the iFinder, MTU has implemented a knowledge management platform. Numerous data sources (PLM, technical literature, intranet based on TYPO3, glossary) are accessible for the MTU employees by using the search, taking into account the existing complex structure of user permissions
"The new search solution delivers the desired hits quickly, easily and reliably - the result: Valuable time savings and satisfied users thanks to IntraFind.“

Project Overview

Industry: Manufacturing

Challenge: Introduction of an enterprise search

Solution: iFinder


The Callenge

As a manufacturer of aircraft engines, MTU Aero Engines is responsible for aviation safety in the civil and military aviation. All documentation on the company‘s projects and products is subject to very high quality standards and the obligation to store these documents up to 50 years and more. Thus, an extensive, continually growing pool of knowledge, documents and information that are stored in different systems, has developed in the course of the company‘s history.

Therefore the wish for a clear and intuitive usable search solution arose that provides uniform access to MTU‘s internal data sources. The handling should be as easy for the user as a search on the internet.

Our Solution

MTU decided to use the Enterprise Search product iFinder in combination with the qualitative expansion modules Linguistics and Similarity Search.

The result is a technically powerful and highly scalable, but at the same time easy-to-use, user-friendly system that allows users to search the full text of documents as well as the database fields (metadata). Central point of entry for starting the search is the MTU intranet.
