RepairMaps.com is a web-based service that allows aircraft owners/operators/lessors to electronically store, manage, and report on their aircraft structural damage, alteration and repair data.
The system facilitates mapping the repair/damage items on visual overlays of the aircraft, along with all the data points relating to each item.
Data entry interfaces facilitate storing and managing data you can trust. Your aircraft's data is organized according to individual repair / damage items, with each item represented as a Tracked Item (TI). Each Tracked Item will itself be tied to a number of related data points, including:
- Attributes (length, width, location, description, approval basis, etc., etc.),
- Photos (we recommend including both locator/vicinity photos, as well as detailed close-ups)
- Documents (approval basis documents, inspection documents, etc.)
- Restrictions (ongoing inspection requirements to comply w/ the item's imposed regulatory burden)
- Visual mapping
Given aviation's regulatory environment, the data QC burden is necessarily high. RepairMaps helps you aim high and encourages high quality data via a 2-party Workflow model. The data entry process is invoked by the Tracked Item's Initiator. In queueing up the TI, the Initiator selects another user to be the TI's Reviewer. Before the Tracked Item can be Finalized (and thereby locked, for integrity purposes), both parties must review and agree to the data's accuracy and completeness. The RepairMaps system facilitates this with official status designations, work queues, and audit histories, and commenting tools for communication.
The heart of the RepairMaps system is the visual depiction of Tracked Items over 2-d overlays of various sections of your aircraft, allowing users to "pin" the TI's location against the appropriate graphic. The value proposition of this component can be measured in multiple ways:
- Seeing a broad array of repair/damage items and their proximity to each other and critical aircraft components can help you take your MRO regime to a new level.
- Such a visual depiction of historical TIs can help differentiate between new and historical items ("was that dent already there?").
- Noting the proximity of a number of damage items can help inform the repair process, potentially rendering it both more efficient and more effective.
RepairMaps' reporting system facilitates outputting an aircraft's Tracked Item data in a way that is useful for a variety of different purposes. Queries are depicted in a sortable tabular format, and can be exported to a print-friendly output or to MS Excel for further analysis.
- Report CPC Level 2 or Higher will give a list of all such items for consideration in program review or for reporting purposes.
- The Major Repairs report will give a list of Majors for a particular aircraft.
- The Items that are visible in Normal Configuration report aids in dot application in support of a dot program.
- Custom reports can be developed based on the customers needs.
