MSG-3 maintenance program creator

ReliaSoft MPC is an MSG-3 compliant maintenance program creator for the aircraft/aerospace industry. The software has been designed to assist MSG-3 working groups to perform Systems and Powerplant Analysis, Structural Analysis and/or Zonal-L/HIRF Analysis in accordance with the MSG-3: Operator/Manufacturer Scheduled Maintenance Development guidelines.

MPC facilitates the analysis process, provides flexible data management capabilities and offers automated report generation in templates that have been accepted for submission to the aircraft industry maintenance review board.

  • MSG-3 compliant maintenance program creator.
  • Provides flexible data management capabilities.
  • Offers automated report generation exclusively for the aircraft/aerospace industry.
  • Supports the entire process for Systems and Powerplant Analysis.
  • Guides analysts through the process to implement the MSG-3 logic.
  • Provides centralized data storage that allows multiple users to cooperate on the analysis and makes it easy to reuse relevant information from prior analyses.
  • Automatically generates the complete maintenance program report document in Microsoft Word®. This report can be generated in a fraction of the time required to manually prepare report documents.

The software is available in two versions:

  • MPC Standard supports the entire process for Systems and Powerplant Analysis.

  • MPC Plus includes additional support for Structural Analysis and Zonal-L/HIRF Analysis.

MPC provides intelligent integration between reliability program activities and tools, while simultaneously facilitating effective information sharing and cooperation between engineering teams of any size. The software allows you to:

  • Easily import data from an MPC systems and powerplant analysis into XFMEARCM++ or RBI. This offers more options for data-driven system analyses. For example, you might want to transfer the system configuration, failure mode and maintenance strategy data to RCM++ in order to obtain system reliability, availability and cost estimates via simulation.
  • Drive improvements in future designs with Weibull++ based on your analysis results.

Product Features

Systems and powerplant analysis

From the identification of maintenance significant items (MSIs) to the generation of the final report document, MPC guides you through the entire MSG-3 process for aircraft systems and powerplant analysis.

  • Identify maintenance significant items (MSIs): In MPC's System Hierarchy interface, the intuitive tree structure makes it easy to define and manage the system configurations you wish to analyze. For systems and subsystems, you can select from the complete list of ATA chapters and sections defined in iSpec 2200: Aircraft Systems. Then you have the flexibility to define your own sub-subsystems and parts. MPC also provides built-in logic to help you identify maintenance significant items (MSIs) and flag them for more detailed analysis.
  • Functional failure analysis (F-F-E-C): For each MSI, you can easily define the related functions, failures, effects and causes in another intuitive hierarchy, add and edit analysis records, and task descriptions which are displayed directly in the hierarchy view. Thanks to Filtered View you can easily see only those records of a specific type (e.g., a list of effects sorted by FEC, or a list of maintenance tasks sorted by interval). You also have the option to import this data from Microsoft Excel® worksheets, if desired.
  • Categorizing effects and selecting maintenance tasks: MPC includes built-in logic diagrams to help the team determine and record the failure effect category (FEC) and select the scheduled maintenance tasks that will be applicable and effective. You can use the Check MSI Analysis window at any time to check the answers to the MSI selection questions against the FECs. When defining maintenance tasks, MPC has the option to use predefined time units for maintenance task intervals.
