Planning and Production is where all planned maintenance jobs are created, and the bulk of all maintenance activity is controlled. Maintenance in RAAS is based on 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 maintenance job both before and after-the-fact. A job card need not become a physical item; the job card number and its associated information may only ever exist in data form. The hard-copy job card, if produced, is used by the maintenance engineer to direct the accomplishment of a maintenance job. For more information about the job card numbering system - SEE Job Card Numbering.
