This article describes the strategies used by Quantum MX Synchronizers to keep Quantum MX in sync with the FLY Online Tools Greenfolder Scheduling and Operations system.
If you operate a flight line that is using the Greenfolder Scheduler and an A&P shop that is using the Quantum MX product, you can easily maintain current aircraft status between your flight and maintenance departments.
As aircraft are scheduled and flown, Greenfolder maintains a usage log of every flight (which causes a hobbs and tach time update.) Greenfolder includes a maintenance reminders module that tracks the status of any scheduled maintenance item as the aircraft hobbs and tach times are updated.
Quantum MX also includes a maintenance reminders module so that maintenance shops may be notified of up coming annual inspections. Typically a maintenance shop does not know the current aircraft hobbs/tach of all of their customer aircraft.
Quantum MX by FLY Online Tools includes Synchronizers which pull aircraft hobbs/tach information from Greenfolder to automatically update the aircraft data in Quantum MX. As aircraft are flown, the hobbs/tach times and maintenance reminders will be synchronized across both servers, allowing maintainers and flight departments to see real-time aircraft and maintenance status.
Synchronizer Use Case
You have a large flight line and an A&P shop. Flight ops and maintenance ops need to keep track of scheduled maintenance status for the entire fleet.
tach option is selected for a synchronizer, the synchronizer will
PULL aircraft tach times from Greenfolder and update the aircraft tach times in Quantum MX.
reminders option is selected for a synchronizer, the synchronizer will
PULL reminders between Greenfolder and Quantum MX to keep both systems in sync.
When reminders are synchronized, the following fields will not be updated between the systems:
yellow limit ,
red limit. This allows Quantum MX users and Greenfolder users to separately configure the reminder display alerting parameters.
New Reminder Created in Quantum MX
When a new maintenance reminder is created in Quantum MX, the reminder will be
CREATED in Greenfolder and attached to the
Airframe component for the assigned aircraft.
Greenfolder has a sense of the various aircraft components: airframe, engine, propeller, and allows reminders to be placed on the specific components. If you require an engine based reminder, it must be created first in Greenfolder. Reference: Greenfolder Maintenance Reminders
