Setting up a part is accomplished in the part’s serial number detail screen and can be carried out in the Item Management module after a part has been received or when manually creating a part, or in Purchasing when receiving the part.
Complete the following steps in order to set up a part.
- Follow the steps in
in order to locate the part requiring set up, or click the Set Up Part button on the final PO receipt window.
- In the serial number details screen, enter the part’s hours and landings, if known, on the Stats tab by clicking the HSN Known and LSN Known checkboxes and then clicking the HSN/LSN button at the bottom of the screen.
- If the part has one or more active constraints (Life, Initial, and/or Repeat), click the constraint tab in order to set the constraint status to pending and enter due values.
If HSN and LSN values are not known, the constraint status can be set to pending, but the due value will have to be in terms of airframe time once the part is installed onto an aircraft.
If there is an Initial constraint and a repeat constraint, only one of the constraints can be pending.
A trigger can be defined at the part number details screen in order to reset the constraint upon installation of the part. See Defining Triggers.
- If the part was received on a PO, the serial number details screen Requires Setup flag may be on. Once all part details have been setup, click the Requires Setup flag off.
A part cannot be installed onto an aircraft when the Requires Setup flag is on.
The Requires Setup flag is set based on the Options – Company Settings “Criteria for Setting Requires Setup at Receipt” options. The flag can be set for parts that track limits, parts that have part number configurations, and for non-consumable repairs.
If the part has one or more active constraints (Life, Initial, and/or Repeat), click the constraint tab in order to set the constraint status to pending and enter due values.
- Click Save.
