  4. 4. SaSiMS I am a Technician Maintenance and Engineering working in The Maintenance Module contains five sub-modules; Line/base • Work Orders • Work Cards Maintenance - • Component Maintenance How can SaSiMS • Maintenance Programmes make my life • Component Template easier? It is the main facility for the specification of both aircraft and component maintenance programmes. It allows the user to manage multiple maintenance programmes with an unlimited number of tasks. Tailoring of the maintenance programme to satisfy the requirements of various aircraft or component types/variants is also achieved in this module. It is also through the Maintenance module that the generation, scheduling, control and The system is accomplishment of work cards and work orders is carried out. The designed with maintenance module connects with the component, inventory and staff modules to allow the specification of material requirements and sign-off details simplicity in mind. of work cards and work orders. The maintenance module also provides the A configurable user with a comprehensive and total accomplishment history of all work orders, work cards, maintenance tasks (scheduled and out-of-phase), and screen ensures you aircraft inspection/checks.

This reduced menu Aircraft Configuration option leads to increased efficiency. The aircraft module is used to record all details of the aircraft which are This philosophy operated/leased/maintained. The module allows entry of information such as manufacturer and model/variant details, aircraft date of manufacture and applies throughout provides the user with a method of viewing the current aircraft flight times and SaSiMS. slings/hoists (if applicable). The user can also specify if special equipment such as an APU, on-board engine registration device or freon air conditioning is installed. The creation of an aircraft is facilitated by setting up templates. Templates are created showing the aircraft, assemblies (including sub-assemblies and sub- sub-assemblies), components and associated maintenance requirements. Once the template has been defined and a new aircraft has been registered in the Aircraft module, the template items (i.e. components, assemblies, maintenance requirements, etc) are copied from the template set-up screen to the new aircraft set-up screen. Through the Component and Log-Book modules, the aircraft set-up can be completed by specifying component details and automatically updating component life information. This feature greatly reduces the time required to complete the set-up of a new aircraft in SaSiMS. Component Maintenance For users doing component maintenance in-house. Easy to create and manage maintenance program for components. Component Work Orders can be attached to aircraft Work Orders and the labour and parts cost can be printed on the aircraft invoice attachment. Component Inspection List/Sheet for the Component Work Order is also printed from this module. Component Work Orders can be connected to a specific customer and that way facilitate component maintenance for external customers. Accomplished Component Work Orders will transfer the work done to the individual component and gives the user a complete accurate maintenance log for the component.
  5. 5. SaSiMS As Materials Manager Inventory Module myfunction revolves The inventory module provides a comprehensive tool for the sourcing and around having the distribution of all inventories, from expendable and consumable to rotable. The recording of general information for each specific part (including preferred correct parts in and alternative suppliers) is contained within this module. the correct place when they are Sub-modules included range from RFQ, PO, Quotes, Sales Orders to Delivery Notes as well as a dedicated Customer / Supplier Management section. needed and all within a confined budget. A hand-in facility for the receipt of ordered parts is included. The module will record pricing information relating to each batch, price discounts, warranty details, and also allows the creation of price lists for individual suppliers/ customers. Other features of the module include a stock-taking function specific to each parts-holding location, a Technician parts out-take section which allows the technician to withdraw required parts from stock, a Parts Requests section allowing entry of parts requests for work cards and work orders. SaSiMS has many This module liaises with the maintenance module for work card and work features to assist in order material requirements and also with the Component module. the smooth A Quarantine section to record details of parts which have been quarantined management of your following removal from an aircraft, return from a workshop or hand-in in stores. The Quarantine section also contains a feature for the automatic logistics and addition of quarantined components to open repair orders. inventory.

Such the next components may be quarantined, in the workshop or currently held in stock. The user has full control and can manipulate all component movements AOG situation. between, aircraft, shops or assemblies. The module liaises with the log-book to record and automatically update the appropriate component, and provides accurate forecasts of overhaul requirements, service life limitations and modification requirements specified in the SB/AD module. It is also possible to specify individual maintenance requirements or to connect maintenance tasks from the Maintenance programme to each component. The Component module History section provides a full life and maintenance history for each component. Through the Component module Miscellaneous section the user can specify owner details, maintenance reference documents and can also enter component financial details such as core/overhauled/residual values and depreciation rates. On entry of new component an automatic check is carried out with the SB/AD module for similar part-numbers.
  6. 6. SaSiMS My Financial Director SB/AD Control will have only one The SB/AD module is the means used to track all airworthiness directives, question: service bulletins, or any OEM documents. Control and monitoring of the requirements of an SB/AD against the fleet, component (installed or “How much will it cost otherwise) and/or spare parts holding is catered for. and have I carried out a cost benefit The module allows the specification of generic SB/AD limits, the automatic connection of effective aircraft/components and the automatic updating of analysis?” individual effective aircraft/component limits from the entry of generic SB/AD limits. All open SB/ADs can be tracked through the aircraft status and forecast reports to provide accurate forecasting of when the SB/ADs are due for accomplishment. As one of the most Tool Management cost A dedicated tools module caters for a comprehensive list of all tools available. effective software Through this module you can enter tool serial numbers, specify their current systems available on location, status and determine their calibration details and requirements.

It also tracks their incorporation in a particular manual where applicable and highlights the date of their supersedance and the superseding cost savings not only manual or revision number. initially but also long Staff Recording into the future. Through the staff module creation of company records for each employee is achieved. This section is used for all staff in Engineering and Operations which feeds the various other modules. Included can be training records (both complete and outstanding), medical records, authorisation levels which are used in the sign-off of work cards and work orders in the Maintenance module, etc. The module also contains the records such as Approval Certificates and License numbers, log-in details, and contact details. This module can also be used to customise the various warnings which an employee may be authorised or need to see. The Log Book It is through the Log Book that you have the facility to enter all required information relating to aircraft flights and individual journey legs of flights for the fleet. The information which can be entered ranges from flight numbers and routes, aircraft, flight and cabin crew details, passenger numbers, and flight times (scheduled and actual) all the way to technical information such as fuel loads, hydraulic and engine oil uplifts, engine cycles and anti-ice requirements. The log-book automatically totals the flight times following each leg/flight and updates the aircraft and component times and maintenance forecasts accordingly. All flight logs entered in the Log-Book module are also used to automatically update the aircraft flight times in all other modules of SaSiMS including Operations Planning.
