Gulfstream Enhances Maintenance Tracking Program
Gulfstream last week said it is introducing three new enhancements to its computerized maintenance tracking program, CMP.net. The new enhancements involve the work order module, inventory purchase order module and smart cards, which are designed to facilitate, capture and report day-to-day aircraft maintenance activities. "More than 40 years ago, Gulfstream was the first business-jet manufacturer to offer a maintenance tracking system," Larry Flynn, president of Gulfstream Product Support, said. "Since then, we've continuously improved and refined this service, keeping pace with advances in technology, to ensure our customers have the best tools available when it comes to tracking maintenance, whether for a single aircraft or a fleet of aircraft." Gulfstream's CMP.net is a Web-based maintenance tracking tool offered to operators of Gulfstream aircraft that tracks both Gulfstream and non-Gulfstream aircraft.
The CMP.net work order module tracks day-to-day hangar-floor activities and helps operators manage costs, according to Gulfstream. It's designed around the specific needs of Part 135 management companies and Part 91 operators who employ their own maintenance staff. The inventory/purchase order module, which is designed for single-model fleets to large, mixed fleets and everything in between, fully integrates inventory and parts management with purchasing. The results, says Gulfstream, include optimized inventory levels and reduced costs associated with excess inventory. Smart cards were designed to save customers time by replacing the traditional handwritten task card with an electronic version.
