Gulfstream Aerospace has released three new enhancements to, its computerized aircraft maintenance tracking program. They are a new work order module, inventory purchase order module and smart cards designed to facilitate, capture and report day-to-day aircraft maintenance activities.

The work order module tracks day-to-day hangar floor activities and helps operators manage costs. Designed around the specific needs of Part 135 management companies and Part 91 operators who employ their own maintenance staff, the work order module simplifies the tracking process, says Gulfstream.

The inventory/purchase order module fully integrates inventory and parts management with purchasing, resulting in efficient, cost-sensitive inventory levels.
A secure, Web-based system, the inventory/ purchase order module is designed for fleets ranging from single-model to mixed.

According to the company, smart cards were designed to save customers time by replacing the traditional hand-written CMP task card with an electronic version. The smart card allows customers to enter compliance information electronically from any personal computer and, with a keystroke, update the aircraft record while attaching an electronic version of the task card for future reference.
