AIS offers aircraft data migration, configuration and MPD revision update services both as part of an initial system implementation and on a go-forward basis.
Data migration and configuration is achieved using a combination of electronic and manual processes. The determination as to what process will be used for a given migration project is based on the source of data and the quality of the source data.
The RAAS system itself has export and import capabilities, and if the aircraft source data is from a RAAS customer then the import can be accomplished without any AIS intervention.
If the aircraft source data is from another aircraft maintenance data system then that data will be migrated into the RAAS standard import format prior to being imported into RAAS. If the source data is available in a data format that can be manipulated then the source data can be electronically migrated into the RAAS standard import format prior to being imported into RAAS. If the source data is paper-based, scanned or PDF-based then the source data will be manually migrated into the RAAS standard import format prior to being imported into RAAS. Regardless of the initial migration approach, manual audit of the data will be performed prior to any data being imported into the main RAAS databases.
As part of the aircraft data migration process AIS regularly advises on proper data configuration, to ensure RAAS customer data will gain the greatest possible advantage from RAAS data structures and RAAS features.
MPD source task data and revision updates are easily imported as well. In conjunction with this service inspection programs can be re-configured as necessary.
