Maintenance planning and production in RAAS is coordinated through a Job Card system where each maintenance job is given a card number and that job card number is used to track the accomplishment of the job both before and after-the-fact. Routine/Planned maintenance job cards are created automatically when selected from a Maintenance Forecast while non-Routine or non-Planned job cards are created manually via the Job Card Listing.

A Job Card or Task Card is a printed document that contains a large amount of information pertaining to the maintenance job. Some of the more important information is the accomplishment instructions, trade and man-hours requirements, access panel list, graphic attachments, reference material and parts/materials list.


  1. Click on Planning and Production or Stores and select Job Card Listing from the pull-down and click Go.
  2. Select the applicable Aircraft or Company and Job Card Group.
  3. Click the Generate button.
  4. If the job card you want is not in the list; Click the Filter button to adjust the filter settings and click Save. Click the Generate button.
