Hello people,

Have any of you used the Boeing PMA system for accessing maintenance manuals, i.e, the AMM, FIM, IPC etc.

I dont use it myself to a great extent, I mainly manage the updates of it, however, we (my department) often get complaints from Engineers on how poor the application is, navigation wise, effectivity issues etc.

From my point of view, as long as it works, and the correct manauls are showing, Im happy, although its a 'pig' of an application to manage, errors often show without warning, basicly, Ive heard, its a 'badly' designed package.

Can any of you guys just out of intrest let me know your point of view with it, are you happy with using PMA, do you encounter porblems with it?

Thanks

PMA is a good idea but as the guys at your place are saying it is a very bad program. It gets itself confused very easily and somethimes won't let you go back to the previous page without going back to the menu and back in again.

On the plus side, the hyperlinks are great for jumping to different diagrams when you are trying to work though a wiring diagram though.

As far as I know Boeing does not continue all the functions of the PMA since a while. Now it acts just as a reader to open and manage the manuals which are simply .pdf-files.


This job sucks!!! I love this job!!!

Loading all the Manuals on the HDD of a Notebook will serve the purpose.

I've got a 40gb drive that fits in a shirt pocket. Plenty of room for a few IPC, SRM and AMM's, plus all the NAS, MS, AS, AN, etc specs and a few thousand Boeing drawings and I am good to go. Even room for lots of music and pictures for when I am on the road.

PMA is a good system for getting schematics for FIM tasks and AMM tasks. However, sometimes the links between documents do not work well. Printing out of PMA has been a challenge and does not occur quickly.

What do you mean by 'what fleet'?

If you mean what aircraft do we have. We have a fleet of 737-300, 737-500, 737-800, 757-200, 767-200 and 767-300 aircraft and I work on them all.
