Info and Concepts

Lifespan Components can be transferred in the following 2 scenarios:

  • Transferring from aircraft to the component store
  • Transferring from the component store to an aircraft

The transfer can be for a single component or an assembly. If an assembly part this will be identified and the user warned that they are transferring an assembly. If you are transferring an assembly all components within the assembly will be moved with a single run of the wizard.

The transfer will take all lifespan, service information, and notes. Any related maintenance items (AD’s, SB/SL’s, Inspections) will be identified in the transfer wizard and reported in the transfer report. This document is extremely important since these maintenance items will need to be relinked to the new replacement component/s.

This transfer is achieved through the use of the transfer wizard. The wizard is 1-3 steps long depending on the complexity of the transfer.

1st Step – Identifies the component or assembly components being transferred.

2nd Step – Identifies any related maintenance items linked to any of the components being transferred. If there are no related items this step will be skipped.

3rd Step – If the transfer is to the component  store this step will allow you to nominate the batch information so as to automatically create the inventory movement for the transfer. If you are not transferring to the component store this step will be skipped.

At each stage of the wizard you can generate the transfer report which identifies the components being moved and related items to each of the components being moved. You will be warned before transferring components to make sure you are holding this report before transfer since it cannot be printed after the move. If you are transferring an assembly each component will have its own page of the report.

Note that after the transfer each item transferred will have history 2 records written. 1 for the aircraft moved from and 1 for the aircraft moved to.

You need to make sure that the current AF details of the destination schedule are correct before performing this task

Where

The component window in the ‘Lifespan Components’ tab panel in the maintenance scheduling section.

Walkthrough

  1. Select the component you wish to transfer by clicking its line in the table and open its window to edit the component.
  2. At the bottom of this window, click the button ‘transfer this component’.
  3. If you are transferring a part belonging to an assembly you will receive a dialog noting that all the components belonging to the assembly will be moved.
  4. You will receive a dialog asking whether you are transferring to the component store or to an aircraft.
  5. If to an aircraft you will receive another dialog asking for the rego you are transferring to.
  6. Step 1 of the wizard. In the wizard window that opens you will see a table showing details of the component/s being transferred.
  7. Step 2 of the wizard. This will identify any related maintenance items attached to any of the components being transferred.
  8. Step 3 of the wizard. If you are transferring the component to the component Store. You may want to return/repair this part to inventory (for example to be sent away for repair). The 3rd stage of the wizard allows you to nominate the GRN, Cost, Job, bin location etc. of the part when it is returned to stock. Complete this if needed and finish the wizard.
  9. Print the transfer report.
  10. Click the button ‘Transfer Component’
  11. If you have entered the details to return the part to stock in the last part of the transfer wizard please visit this job to ensure the lifespan component has been returned and you will see an entry for this item and a quantity of 1 entered in the ‘IN’ column of the parts page.

Tips

Always make sure you update the current AF details of the destination aircraft before transferring components.
