Tier 3: Structure Builder
Tier 3 takes the Tier 2 model one step further by allowing for actual indentured structures to be loaded as well as the incorporation of case management. Moreover, Tier 3 can be purchased as a turn key solution if the end user prefers for AVCOM’s staff to perform the entry process.
Structure Builder is designed to allow a user to upload a list of parts to obtain part status and identify potential solutions for groups of parts. This Tier allows a user to upload a flat file parts list or an indentured parts list with unlimited levels of indenture. Tier 3 is available in both an executable or web based version.
Each user can manage their own independent parts list and working area called a “sandbox.” Each user within a configuration or customer group can perform read-only viewing of the other users sandboxes to allow for sharing of data, notes and information. Users will not be able to view information outside of their own customer group. BAE Systems strictly manages all user groups and users within each customer group. Login and usage information metrics are monitored and tracked by BAE Systems Software Engineering, Product Development, and Program Management.
In addition to Tier 1 and Tier 2 features, Tier 3 allows users to upload an unlimited indentured structured BoM using the BoM Builder and Analysis Import Wizard. Indentured BoMs allow for advanced impact analysis capability to identify items locations per Technical Order Figure/Index data. Tier 3 also includes Case Management tools to track your obsolescence issues to closure.
