In RAAS, an Applicable Installation is an aircraft model and can be selected for any part number.
As we know, everything in RAAS has the same data structure. That is, everything is assigned to an Item Type and has a part description, a part number, and a serial number. As such, inspections have part numbers just as engines, propellers, and components do.
It is at the part number level that routine maintenance requirements are defined. When a maintenance item is issued from a maintenace forecast for an aircraft, whether that maintenance item is component maintenace, a structural inspection, or a letter/hours check inspection, the item's applicable installation tells RAAS what information the resulting job card must be populated with.
A part number's applicable installation tells RAAS not only which aircraft model a part number is applicable to, but also to which aircraft serial numbers in that aircraft model fleet a part number is applicable to.
Once an applicable installation is selected for a part number, a Job Card Template can be defined for that part number. See Planning and Production - Job Card Templates. Job Card Templates can included parts lists, trade requirements and graphic attachments, as well as links to inspection tasks and/or groups defined in the Inspection Documents module.
When a letter/hours check inspection is issued from a maintenance forecast for an aircraft, RAAS looks for an applicable installation at the letter/hours check's part number and knows whether or not the inspection is applicable to the aircraft in question. If the inspection is applicable, RAAS will populate the resulting job card with the contents of the Job Card Template AND the contents of any Inspection Documents module taks or groups linked through the Job Card Template.
Due to the fact that a part number (an engine, propeller, component, part or inspection) can be applicable to multiple aircraft tpes and models, multiple applicable installations can be selected for a single part number.
To select an applicable installation for a part number, follow these steps:
Note: When using the Build function, it is highly recommended that an audit be carried out on all serial numbers created to ensure correctness of all data.
Once the applicable installation is defined, a Job Card Template (JCT) can be created for items with scheduled maintenance requirements/constraints. See also Planning and Production - Job Card Templates.
To create a Job Card Template from the part number Applic Inst tab, follow these steps:
Note: If the same JCT is required for multiple constraints and/or applicable installations, JCT details can be entered once and the details copied using the Copy Details function.
Note: File attachments are selected from the Document Library. See Planning and Production - Document Library.
