Logistics Product Data Reports Handbook

2015-10-21
WIP
TAHB0007_1A
This document describes a set of standardized reports that can be generated using the logistics product data elements contained in GEIA-STD-0007-B. Each report is defined by selection options, processing, format, report sequence, and data sources. The selection options paragraph identifies recommended mandatory and optional selections that can be made by the user to tailor the report content. The processing paragraph identifies qualifying criteria for report data, report calculations, and specific instructions regarding how the data should be presented on the report. Each report has a sample report showing its format. Report sequences specify the sort criteria for a given report, and each Part/Section within a report. There is an attached listing of data sources for the elements that are on a report. The listing provides the report header for each element; and its GEIA-STD-0007-B data element/attribute along with the appropriate entity.

REDUCING DOWNTIME THROUGH THE USE OF PREDICTIVE ANALYTICS AND TECHNICAL TRAINING ADVANCEMENTS

2018-01-05
WP-0007
The exponential increase in the number of aircraft and air travelers has triggered new innovations aimed to make airline services more reliable and consumer friendly. Quick and efficient maintenance actions with minimum downtime are the need of the hour. Another major challenge is ensuring maintenance personnel are trained effectively; technology like augmented reality and Virtual Maintenance Trainers (VMTs) may provide safe and efficient training in lieu of live, instructor-led arrangements. And while traditional User/Maintenance Manuals provide useful information when dealing with simple machines, when dealing with complex systems of systems and miniaturized technologies, like unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), new technologies like augmented reality can rapidly and effectively support the maintenance operations.
