Staying true to our roots
Schematic, Gannet looks like this:
1. Aircraft Basics
Before you can create an Aircraft you need to complete the data that is needed for the aircraft basis information.
- Manufacturer: TAB: Aircraft Manufacturers
- Aircraft Model: TAB: Aircraft Manufacturers
- Aircraft Variant: TAB: Aircraft Manufacturers
- Aircraft Owner: Generic Data - TAB: Operators and Owners
- Aircraft Operator: Generic Data - TAB: Operators and Owners
- Maintenance Class: Maintenance Data – TAB: Maintenance Program Class
- “Use margins” - Set the use margins if you want to specify margin (tolerance) on maintenance task intervals.
The scope of this module is to provide both information used in Maintenance Program module and report that shows the current revision of the publications used in the maintenance process.
3. Maintenance Data
A Maintenance Program Class is a basic definition for where you assign an Aircraft and a Maintenance Program to.
Maintenance Program Class
Zones, Panels and Positions are also defined for a Maintenance Program Class.
To use Margins in the Maintenance Program Tasks tolerances, the “Uses Margins?” must be set.
Margin / Margin escalation:
If you have a task with 100HR interval and 10HR margin.
Without margin escalation: If done at 105HR, the next due will be at 200HR.
With margin escalation: If done at 105HR, the next due will be 205HR
Zones and Panels are used in the Maintenance Program for defining the Zone to work in and the Panels to open/close to get access.
Positions defined in this module shall be used when you want to install a component on a certain position of the aircraft:
Minimum Equipment List
This module is designed to list all the rotable components which have ever been installed on an aircraft.You can also see the maintenance that has to be done for a certain S/N as well as S/N history.
5. Maintenance Program
This is the module where every scheduled maintenance task is imported.There is also the possibility to add repetitive AD’s / SB’s when printing the Maintenance Program for the local CAA.
This module contains every AD, SB, SIL, MOD etc. related to the customer fleet.
7. Journey Logs
We know there are operators out there who update a/c counters monthly. Or when they complete a task. But we know the best practice is to update the Journey Logs in real time or almost in real time.
The Forecast is the PART-M planning tool.
The Guesstimate is the Hangar planning tool.
Only Work Orders or Unscheduled Work Cards which have the status as open can be seen on the Guesstimate – as soon as a Work Order/WC or Unscheduled W/C has been accomplished it will disappear from the Guesstimate i.e. only Work Orders / Work Cards not accomplished will be seen here.
If for various reasons a task can not be accomplished on time, you can ask for an extension.
11. Requested Parts
Requested Parts is for requesting all kind of Parts – regardless of Work Cards.The person making the request may have approval rights for making requests – if not the request must be approved by a given person.
This is the tab where you create P/N’s. There are two types of P/N: rotable and consumable.Rotable is used for any item that is identifiable by a serial number. Consumable, is used for parts that will be used and discarded. Consumables have only a batch number.
There are several types of orders in Gannet, but basically they all fit into two main categories:
Order where you DO NOT send out a serial-number:
- Purchase order, based on P/N and quantity
- Forward exchange, for when you order rotables – and you will be required to return an unserviceable component “In Lieu”.
- Consumable Repair
- Warranty Consumable
Order where you DO send out a serial-number:
- Repair, you send out a specific component. Vendor might repair this component or might opt to send to another component as replacement.
- Exchange, to use when you want to exchange a component.
- Warranty claim, for sending component out claiming warranty repair or replacement.
- Loan order, when you send a s/n out for repair, overhaul etc and you receive a new s/n for the duration of the repair.
For every order you send, you can get one or more invoices.
The requested parts tab shows you an overview of all parts that have been requested.A request can be related to a WC, but there can also be “standalone” requests that might not have a connection to a WC.
Stocktaking is used to verify that the on stock quantities listed in Gannet are correct.
There are three basic scenarios where the stocktaking is used:
- (Normal) Correcting the quantity of a single batch if a discrepancy is detected.
- (Expired Parts) Zeroing out expired parts.
- (Normal) Doing the annual stocktaking.
- (Scrapped parts) Scrapping rotables that are on stock.
This module allows you to supervise your tools status related to recertification due date.
The following modules were not covered by this presentation:
CountersIn this module you define your (special) counters and assign them to the A/C
A/C Damage EditorIf you find external damages on fuselage or different components you can mark them on the schematics found in this module
ReliabilityThis modules gathers data from other various modules and converts this data into reliability reports for your fleet
UsersIn this module you define Gannet users and their respective rights
Staff infoThis module is used to set up staff competences, training requirements etc.
3rd Party MaintenanceSimilar to Workcards module but for clients
Assetsthe module used for incoming / outgoing invoices
TemplatesVery useful tool in managing the component assembly trees
CustomsThis module generates reports for components which are subject to the customs regulations
NotesAn in-Gannet system for warning and messaging
