With the introduction of the new m/jobcontrol/engine WebService, Lufthansa Technik is creating a new system for time control of life limited engine and APU parts (LLPs). It will replace the former system of the Engine Lifetime Control and is designed to fit seamlessly into the internet-based Technical Operations WebSuite manage/m®. Furthermore m/jobcontrol/engine is the basis for a reliable engine and APU compliance reporting.

The new application comprises scheduled and supplementary maintenance and will provide an end-to-end reference of requirements documents such as engine manuals, ADs or SBs up to maintenance tasks. Moreover, it gives users information on engine configuration as well as a back-to-birth parts history and specific removal forecasts in relation to fleet and tail sign (MSN). Thanks to the “Master Parts List” m/jobcontrol/engine is able to support the engine assembly and build up the current parts list. Based on these data a flexible and customized reporting is available.

Finally, even if an aircraft does not have an automated recording system for flight hours and flight cycles or special counters, the manual entry via a user-friendly input mask is possible. Thus the operator has always up-to-date counter information accessible. Lufthansa Technik customers will benefit from this additional information and functionality once the customer data has been successfully migrated into the new system. Thereafter, the old system will be taken out of service.
