MPC 3 Product Features
An MSG-3 compliant maintenance program creator designed for the aerospace industry, ReliaSoft's MPC 3 automates, manages and controls the entire Maintenance Review Board (MRB) process from the initiation of the analysis to the automated creation of final report documents, with built-in features for the management and control of data and documents for multiple projects.
MPC 3 has been designed to assist engineering teams to accurately and efficiently complete MSG-3 aircraft systems and powerplant analysis in accordance with the recommendations of the Airlines for America’s (formerly known as the Air Transport Association [ATA]) MSG-3: Operator/Manufacturer Scheduled Maintenance Development publication. The MSG-3 is a guideline accepted by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for the development of Maintenance Review Board (MRB) reports.
MPC 3 was designed with special emphasis on MSG-3 analysis performed in both working group environments and/or by teams or single individuals.
MPC 3 Supports the Entire MSG-3 Process...
From the identification of maintenance significant items (MSIs) through the analysis of functions, failures, effects, causes and tasks, to the generation of the final report document, ReliaSoft's MPC 3 software guides you through the entire MSG-3 process for aircraft systems and powerplant analysis.
Identify Maintenance Significant Items (MSIs)
The MPC 3 interface makes it easy to define and manage the systems, subsystems, subsubsystems and parts to be included in your analysis. The software contains the complete list of ATA system and subsystem numbers and descriptions for you to select from and also provides quick and easy utilities for defining subsubsystems and parts. The intuitive hierarchical structure makes it easy to manage and display this information. The software contains built-in logic (based on the ATA MSG-3 guidelines) to help you determine which components represent maintenance significant items (MSIs) in the analysis.
Defining Functions, Failures, Effects and Causes
For each MSI, you can easily define and modify the related functions, failures, effects and causes. This information is also displayed in an intuitive hierarchy that is easy to navigate.
Categorizing Effects and Selecting Maintenance Tasks
MPC 3 includes built-in logic for determining the failure effect category and selecting the appropriate maintenance tasks. The software allows you to categorize effects as Evident Safety (5), Evident Operations (6), Evident Economic (7), Hidden Safety (8) and Hidden Non-Safety (9). MPC 3 also guides you through the steps to select and assign Lubrication/Servicing, Inspection/Functional Check, Operation/Visual Check, Restoration, Discard or other maintenance tasks.
Automatic Report Generation in Microsoft Word
After guiding you through the process to complete the MSG-3 analysis, MPC 3 will automatically generate the complete maintenance program report document in Microsoft Word®. This report can be generated automatically in a fraction of the time required to manually prepare a report and includes all analysis results and attached "Description and Operation" (D&O) documents in a format that has been accepted by the FAA for Maintenance Review Board (MRB) reports.
Teamwork and Project Management
MPC 3 has been designed to allow multiple users and/or groups of users to work cooperatively on their MSG-3 analyses. This includes check-in/check-out document control capabilities.
The software also facilitates the ability to reuse sections from other analyses, when applicable, by providing extensive import/export, copy/paste and "select existing" functionality.
