eMRD

electronic Maintenance Requirements Determination

Overview

eMRD has been developed by Logistic Engineering Services (LES) to simplify the application of the Australian Defence Forces (ADF) Maintenance Requirements Determination (MRD) process.

eMRD can be installed as a Standalone application or installed to a network to allow multiple users. The eMRD application provides the ability to manage each user access rights to Administrator, Manager or User levels.

The primary difference between eMRD and other LSAR applications is the ability of the analyst to view an LCN/ALC by its Physical and Functional structure while simultaneously viewing its associated LSA configuration and data elements. The Tool enables the analyst to maintain a clear perspective of what he is looking at from a top down view.

eMRD is used to develop new or manage an existing LSAR. The development of a new LSAR can be accomplished by manually developing the LCN structure, or by electronically importing a text document. An existing MIL-STD-1388-2B LSAR can be freely imported and exported.

Functionality

Fully compatible electronic Import & Export functionality with:

  • MIL-STD-1388-2B DOD Requirements for a Logistic Support Analysis Record
  • DI(AF) AAP5102.003 MIL-STD-1388-1A/2B & ADF Unique Requirements
  • DEF(AUST)5692 Logistic Support Analysis Requirements for the Australian Defence Organisation

Note that while eMRD is fully compliant with the data interchange requirements of the above standards, the application has been optimised for the MRD process and therefore the user is not exposed to all data fields through the user interface.

While not officially certified by Commonwealth agencies, LES has on many occasions conducted import and export activities between OmegaPS and eMRD.

The work processes within eMRD conform to the following standards:

  • MIL-STD-1629 Failure Modes Effects & Criticality Analysis
  • MIL-STD-2173 Reliability Centred Maintenance
  • DI(AF) AAP7001.038 (AM1) Maintenance Requirements Determination Manual (incorporating DI(AF) AAP7001.031 Technical Maintenance Plan and DI(AF) AAP7001.064 Servicing Schedule Manual)

eMRD produces a range of standard ADF reports in addition to a number eMRD specific reports to assist with LSAR and data validation.

eMRD produces an ADF compatible Part 2, 3 & 4 of the Technical Maintenance Plan (TMP) and an individual or complete Planned Servicing Schedule (PSS). An additional function is the ability to produce or view an LCN or LCN and children specific TMP pages only to enable the analyst to verify the input of data or task changes.

Provides electronic sorting of the task library and supports task packaging by utilising a Drag & Drop functionality.

Capabilities

  • Compliant with the data interchange requirements of MIL-STD-1388-2B and DEF(AUST)5692 Issue 2.
  • Produces an ADF compatible Part 2, 3 & 4 of the Technical Maintenance Plan (TMP) and an individual or complete Planned Servicing Schedule (PSS).
  • Operates off either a SQL server or MS Access backend database.
  • Can be operated on a standalone PC or over a LAN/WAN environment
  • Export and Import from any other compliant export file. Exporting provides many options for EIAC only exports and DEF(AUST)5692 Issue 2 Features that can be switched off if required.
  • Full management of LCN structure including creation, moving and copying.
  • ADAASS Project Dataset functionality

Features

  • Familiar Windows based application graphical user interface.
  • Extensive data enquiry functionality including customised data extraction.
  • Rich task manipulation and enquiry functionality.
  • Very shallow window navigation minimising the number of mouse clicks to reach the desired destination.
  • Database copy, upsize and downsize from the user interface.
  • Main screen provides vast, context based LCN related information.
  • Use of trees and other hierarchical displays provide a great depth of information in a very compact way.
  • Export reports in a number of formats.
