Viewing the Parts Dashboard
- Click the green Parts Pending card on the home screen to view the Parts Dashboard.
- The dashboard will be displayed showing the parts kits for all open work orders.
Filtering the Data
The parts data may be filtered based on the status of the part to help you identify parts that require action. Click the filter categories near the top of the screen to filter the parts kit listing for parts that fit the category.
The progress dial displays the total number of parts within the category in the center of the circle. The value of the dial indicates the percentage of the total number of pending parts. In this example, ten (10) parts need to be ordered which constitute about 25% of the total number of pending parts.
Parts may be identified as
not ordered or
not received or
in inventory or
picked from inventory. Clicking a status badge will change the status of the part.
Distinguishing Estimates and Quotes
Parts are commonly not purchased when performing estimates and quotes. These parts may be distinguished on the parts kit dashboard by using two methods:
1. Work Orders that contain work entries will be shown with a wrench icon. (i.e. Estimates do not contain work performed / work entries.)
1. The work flow action label may be used to further distinguish work orders in the parts kit listing.
In-Place Editing of Data Fields
order number, and
source fields are editable by clicking on the field.
As you place your parts orders, change the status to
ordered and enter the order number and tracking URL to capture the shipping information.
When parts that have been ordered arrive, change the status to
received. You may use the
notes field to enter extra information about the part for example: "Part is located in cabinet A5"
Picking Inventory Parts
After inventory parts are picked for use on the aircraft, change the status to
picked. When an inventory part is picked or returned to inventory, the inventory status in Quantum MX will automatically be updated.
Assigning Parts to Work Entries
Parts may be assigned to work entries directly from the Parts Dashboard. Use the Add to Work Entry link to assign the part to a work entry on the associated work order.
Parts Being Removed for Repair or Overhaul
The As removed filter will show only parts that are statused as
removed from an work order. This filter allows you to identify items that are intended to be sent out for repair or overhaul.
Filtering Parts Requests

unit (aircraft or component),
approval flag. To filter the results, select the desired filter option, then click the Apply button. Click Clear Filters to reset all filters to show all results.
