ADVANTAGES OF DIGITAL WIRING DIAGRAMS
This new system provides an integrated view of flexible wiring diagrams and the data contained in traditional wiring reports. Data is provided in a format that is specific to a single airplane and can be updated more frequently than paper-based diagrams.
The wiring data is linked electronically to the 787 Fault Isolation Manual and 787 Airplane Maintenance Manual. Additional links to the Standard Wiring Practices Manual are planned.
eSWAT/IWS can also enhance productivity by providing users with customizable views of information. For example, airline maintenance teams can view a wiring diagram in one window and a list of parts associated with that view of the diagram in another window (see fig. 3). That enables the team to quickly locate required parts, facilitating faster maintenance turnarounds.
By streamlining access to a vast array of wiring information, this new tool has the potential to dramatically increase knowledge transfer while decreasing the possibility of maintenance errors.
The new Boeing eSWAT / IWS is designed to improve the flow time and quality of electrical system maintenance by enabling maintenance personnel to focus their efforts on making repairs, not searching for information. The system provides virtually instant access through MyBoeingFleet.com to detailed information about any copper or fiber-optic wiring on the 787, all in context to the specific airplane being repaired. This new approach to wiring diagrams is designed to increase the efficiency of maintenance and decrease maintenance costs for 787 operators.
