Attaching Reserved Parts to Handling Units
Hello everyone, I’m facing a error when attaching reserved parts to Handling Units.On a CAMRO process, when we do the disposition we are not being allowed to choose an Handling Unit if we didn’t choose it previously on the disassembly side. Even after putting the Part into stock, giving him a disposition code, since the part is automatically reserved for the assembly side, we still can’t attach it to an Handling Unit.Does anyone have a solution for this ? Many Thanks,Bruno Martins

Batch, part-number based task completions
SWA has noted that you cannot find BATCH part-number based tasks while using the Task Search function. We see that if a task has been completed that you should be able to find it via the Task Search. We were able to see the task completions while reviewing the parent Requirement and Inventory details history. Do any other operators have a better way to search for BATCH, P/N based requirement tasks?
workpackage Assigned Tasks Tab
Hi All,Wondering if there is a way we can hide the assigned tasks tab of a work package from specific user groups. Reason: we are seeing an organisational impact with maintenance exection teams attempting to justify deferring maintenance as they can see the remaining compliance limits. This control is not in their jurisdiction to interrogate.Wondering if other Airlines have seen/heard similar. Thanks,
Getting left mouse click to open a link in a lobby widget when the link is using a relative URL
In IFS Aurena, I have a lobby element that has a list of links, over 50+.A small sample of my link listWhen I left click on the link, I get a 404 error page but if I right click and select “open in new tab”, the link works.My question is, how can I get the left mouse click to open the link correctly and not get the 404 error message?Here is how my links are set up. I’m using a relative URL so I don’t need to hard code the domain when I transfer it to the client’s server.
Finding a way to administrate Fault Definition (FD) in MTX
Increased use of FD get more frequent FD need to be removed.A FD cannot be obsoleted or deleted from the CS it was created.Today the FD are renamed starting by "OBSOLETED" which is not correct for end user in the GUI. Potential solution identified are :RSTAT2 the FD? Move the FD into an unused organisation? Any other solution?
Fault Definition use of Failure Category and Failure Type Field?
Failure Category & Fault Priority Field, are BASELINE defined by Fault Definition and not modifiable on ACTUALSFault Type field, is BASELINE & ACTUAL modifiableCan IFS advise is a Parent / Child relation between Failure Category & Failure type exist ? How IFS would recommend tio uses those type of fields with Fault Definition?And finalys how to set up Fault Priority to have them reflecting a priority according to the Fault Definition?
Continued use of MXI 8.1 sp3
Hi - We would like to keep using MXI v 8.1 sp3 until the end of 2027. The plan is to request new license keys yearly in Jan 2024, Jan 2025 and Jan 2026. Is there any issue with continuing to use version 8.1 sp3 until then? Would there be any additional fees that we would be charged to keep using this version and get yearly license keys?
Why does Maintenix use use terms that are not industry standard? Two examples come immediately to mind: The term “record oil uptake” should be “record oil service” and using the term “inventory” when ATA codes are the industry standard.Granted both are minor issues but it illustrates a point. That point is there seeming no consulting the people that actually use Maintenix. The people that use Maintenix in high stress environments such as turning aircraft under time constraints.
Initialize as not applicable in Ref Doc limitation.
When engineering users flag N/A more than 20 A/C at same time on INITIALIZE REF DOC page generates "error message", which is in fact a "message built by IFS due to technical limitations "URL exeeded the maximum lenght".Please see attached docDoes other airlines have the same experience?If Yes, an IDEA could be raised to support a system improvement for Large fleet administration.
Hyperlink to Maintenix Reference Document or Requirement
Hello, We have the possibility to go to a Barcode with an hyperlink with the following format:http://mtx.afklmdomain.com/maintenix/servlet/ScanBarcode?aBarcodeScan=TRFX123456789&aReturnToPage=/Do you have similar hyperlink definition to go directly to a document in the baseline?like a Refdoc, a Requirement code…? by definition the baseline documents do not have Barcodes. Thanks
Price Type Field Modification
The Repair Order Price Type field needs to retain the type selected by the Component Repair Analyst and not change to “Confirmed” when the order is received. Once the CRA validates the service with the vendor that matches the price paid these should remain on the order and not automatically be changed by the system. The field currently changes to confirmed on receipt. Need to validate the Price Type field is a text field Need to expand the Price Type field to include all services: Test, Inspect, Calibration, Minor Repair, Std Repair, Major Repair, Overhaul, Modification, RAI
Where do I find the planned release schedule for IFS Maintenix?
I was trying to find the Release Schedule for IFS Maintenix but couldn’t find it.I found the master article for release schedule that is tagged as a related topic. However, this article didn’t contain any information regarding when SP6 and SP7 is planned to be released.
Access to Maintenix for 3rd party
Can someone please inform us how they are providing access to their Maintenix system to third parties i.e. MRO / Line stations ? Do you use citrix, vpn, or some other technology, or are your servers on the internet? We are trying to plan our configuration and are looking to find out how others have theirs configured.
Service Condition - Order Information Retention
On a repair order, the service condition should not change to the current condition of the unit. Today, a unit will be received back from a vendor in SVC condition. At this point the order should lock the condition as it’s the condition we received the unit from the vendor and is also the condition for our price. Our current system will change these order conditions to whatever the current condition is of the unit. For example, the below Closed order shows the service condition as installed on an aircraft. When it’s removed this condition will change again to unserviceable. We need to get this condition locked to the condition of the unit at time of receipt and not to keep changing with the current condition of the unit.
Basic Data Setup for Flight Line Maintenance
Is there any documentation how to setup IFS Cloud - Flight Line Maintenance? I have been trying to sandbox out the Functionality so I know how it all works and what it can and can’t do. The content in IFS Academy just provides and introduction of the functionality and little demo, but not much information on the basic data setup.What I am looking at is the level of dependencies it has on other IFS Modules and Products.The big questions I am looking at are;Is it pretty standalone or do I need Maintenix and/or ATCM to make it work.What levels of AV Structure needs to captured, and can you build ad-hoc structures on the fly as opposed needing the data prepositioned as you do with Maintenix. I am also looking at Part Request and want to understand where parts are Issued from? Could this be Warehouse (Distribution) or does in need to Maintenix Inventory?
Release date for IFS Maintenix 8.3 SP6
My understanding is that IFS Maintenix 8.3 SP6 was planned to be released at 07-APR-2022 (GA).I have searched the product bulletins on the community and did not find one for making SP6 GA. My conclusion is that SP6 has been delayed.Is there a new release date for IFS Maintenix 8.3 SP6?
Can't move aircraft from one hangar bay to another bay with multiple In-Work package
HiMaintenix allow user to move Workpackage (WP) from one TRACK to another when there is only one WP with status IN-WORK. But if there are more then one WP with status IN-WORK then the system doesn’t allow it, why not ?This happen quite often for us when C-check is coming to an end that the aircraft is moved between Hangar (track) slots.
