Avianis offers interfaces with various Maintenance Tracking systems (CAMP, AvTrak, CMP and Flightdocs). Learn how to setup the integrations. This article provides an overview on how to manage inspection items, track times, create job cards and input discrepancies while integrating with a 3rd party maintenance tracking system. The interface with the 3rd party tracking systems allow operations to send times from Avianis and pull due items (inspection items) from the tracking system into Avianis. The purpose of the integration is to provide insight and transparency to operations regarding maintenance tracking.
Sending Times from Avianis to the Tracking System
The sending times feed is automatic. The information feeds to the tracking system daily. In My Company > Aircraft > Mx Module an operation can set on each aircraft profile whether the times need to be sent based on the verified leg status or if they need to send regardless of leg status.
- Go to Maintenance > Integrations
- Select the aircraft to see totals and logs. The values at the top are a combination of what has been base lined in the aircraft profile and what has been logged in Avianis. Those are the values that go over to the tracking system.
Helpful Hint: The APU and Hobbs values are the highest values from a flight log entry. These values do not have to be base lined in the aircraft profile.
Daily inspection items automatically pull from the tracking system into Avianis. The managing of the inspection item continues in the tracking system. That way when the auto pull occurs or if a manual pull is completed, the user manages in the tracking system which updates Avianis automatically.
Go to Maintenance > Inspections
The inspection page provides a list of inspection items pulled from the connected tracking systems. At the top, the last due list sync date and time is listed per integration. In between the daily pull, a user can manually pull a due list for a specific aircraft. Select the aircraft in the drop down and the integration will run.
The name of the item, aircraft, engine (if applicable) and frequencies come into Avianis. The warning and critical values are set in the Mx Module in the aircraft profile in Avianis. Furthermore, the warning and critical values are set to communicate to charter/dispatch in the Trip Snapshot > Aircraft section the status of the inspection item. There is an override option available on each inspection item. When set to yes and a date is entered, the item will not update again until the defined date. This is helpful when there is an item due based on the minimum tolerance; however, there is a maximum tolerance value and the minimum tolerance can be exceeded. Avianis considers the minimum value for status (warning, critical, overdue). The override feature allows a user to manually adjust the items details and designate when it needs to get updated from the tracking system again. Here is an example of an inspection item from CAMP that has been overridden.
The purpose in creating a job card in Avianis is to manage an aircraft offline event for the defined due item as well as note any discrepancies identified during the inspection item.
- Go to Maintenance > Inspections
- Click "Start" on the inspection item
- Enter the name of the Job Card. The aircraft and date will auto-select
- Enter any applicable information. To learn more on creating offline events, go to Put an Aircraft Down for Maintenance. The open job card is visible to the charter/dispatch team when quoting and building trips when either a discrepancy or offline event is part of the job card.
Note: The updating of inspection items in the tracking systems updates the inspection item in Avianis, not the job card.
The messages feature can be used to proactively communicate aircraft operational information to other users and/or groups in Avianis.
There are three places to create a discrepancy from. From within an open job card, on the main discrepancy page or from within a flight log (flight crew personnel are able to create in the flight log). The purpose in creating discrepancies in Avianis is to communicate to charter/dispatch open discrepancies that affect operations. To create a discrepancy from within the job follow these steps:
- Access the applicable job card.
- Click "Add New"
3. Enter the applicable information and "Save"
Restrictions can be added to discrepancies. To setup, go to Maintenance on the main menu, Configuration > Restrictions. Create a list of restrictions to associate to discrepancies. Restrictions display in the Trip Snapshot for charter/dispatch as well as on the calendar.
