The EAGLE Logistics Product Data, or LPD, tool is a logistics system using a central database repository for the development of fully compliant logistics products for a variety of military specifications, including GEIA-STD-0007 (Rev A & B), MIL-STD-13888-2B, and DEF STAN 00-60 (all Issues) with DEF(AUST)5692 on the horizon.
EAGLE utilizes an indentured parts list/bill of material loader to generate a spec-compliant breakdown and can backfill LSA data as well as an ad hoc table interface for bulk loading and editing. A featured interface allows for tailoring information by way of cloning, referencing, or adding & editing records individually by functional area. Entire branches can be moved in a breakdown view of the project and entire breakdowns can be mapped to particular variants in a matrix view of the complete system.
EAGLE automatically builds all standardize logistics reports, exchange files, and integrates with the EAGLE Publishing System, or EPS, to flow LSA data into technical publications on a single database instance which meet the requirements of ASD S1000D and MIL-STD-40051.
EAGLE Ad Hoc is a powerful reporting tool that allows users to easily create simple or complex SQL-based reports that can be tailored to extract data from EAGLE, EPS or MMIS. After an Ad Hoc query is executed, data can be updated on the fly, and new rows can be imported by cutting and pasting directly from Microsoft Excel. This feature allows you to cut and paste 1000s of rows into the database with a couple of clicks. Ad Hoc queries can also be stored in the database for future use.
EAGLE Breakdown Navigation is an intuitive tree-based application that gives users the ability to visualize a functional or physical product breakdown structure of the end items and systems that reside in the EAGLE LPD repository. Output can be viewed as an LCN breakdown, or Part Number breakdown and can also be filtered by Usable On Code (UOC). This feature is a must for programs that have several product variants. From the EAGLE Breakdown navigator, users can easily jump from any item in the tree to Provisioning, RAM, Task Analysis, Transportation, as well as documents and drawings.
EAGLE Task Analysis gives users the ability to easily create and update all LPD-related task data in one module. Users can enter new task codes, add task frequencies, support equipment, provisioned items, mean man hours, annual operating requirements, facilities requirements, training requirements, subtask data, subtask narrative, work area codes, personnel, and much more.
Additionally, if your program has LPD and S1000D or MIL-STD-40051 requirements, task data entered into the EAGLE system can be transformed into work pages or data modules with the click of a button. This feature allows for tremendous savings and excellent data quality and consistency because the task data developed for your LPD will now match your Tech Manuals.
Bill of Materials Importer
Creating your initial LCN structure can be complicated and time consuming, particularly if you are new to the concept of LCNs. The EAGLE Bill of Materials importer allows EAGLE users to easily transform indentured parts lists from Microsoft Excel into GEIA-STD-0007 or other LPD formats. Users can specify the LCN structure, format, and gaps, then preview what the LCN breakdown structure will look like before updating the EAGLE LDP database. Users can also select what LDP tables and columns to backfill, and are provided with a report that highlights any potential data quality issues so that they can be corrected.
If you have a new LPD requirement, and an indentured parts list, the EAGLE BOM importer is the way to go.
Reliability and Maintainability
The EAGLE Reliability and Maintainability module allows users to manage all system reliability LPD information in one centralized system. Users can enter RAM data such as wear out life, logistics considerations, failure rates, maintenance and support concepts, item function information, system accessibility and training considerations, and mean time between failure information.
Additional product attributes such as failure and damage mode indicators and failure mode ratios can be documented and Reliability Centered Maintenance results can be performed and stored in the database for use in maintenance task analysis related activities.
After RCM analysis is performed, failure modes can be linked with maintenance tasks, along with maintenance intervals, task types, and measurement bases for use in Task Frequency and Maintenance Repair rate calculations.
