Using the MMIR software to complete SDRs and warranty claims
reduces workload tremendously. The program allows the person
entering the data to customize the data fields for future use,
thus decreasing the amount of time spent entering data. The
MMIR software stores key information about the aircraft and
engines maintained by the organization, which is available at
the touch of a key or the click of a mouse. The program has
numerous reporting capabilities, including multiple parameter
searches, part and model analysis reports, and inventory reports.
submitting reports, the completed electronic form is automatically
sent (via the Internet) to the MMIR server, where the data will
be electronically retrieved by the participating manufacturers
and the FAA, where appropriate. MMIR users can query the service
to see if problems of a similar nature have been reported by
other operators, and the corrective actions taken. The MMIR
service will not supply warranty information unless members
have indicated that they have no objections to the release of
statistical analysis of MMIR data is available from AlgoPlus.
Their value-added program, HeliSTAT,
is an automated system that can enhance MMIR reports to red
flag potential problems, track individual aircraft, and produce
trend analysis and graphic summaries.
and more companies are developing and using Quality Assurance
programs to monitor and continually improve the safety, efficiency,
and effectiveness of operations. Some companies are required
to do so because of the FARs under which they operate; some
do so because it's good for business. MMIR now offers a venue
that can be an effective tool to incorporate into or start a
QA, CASS, or other safety management program. MMIR offers an
Incident Report form. With this feature, your company can keep
track of the identification, investigation, and resolution of
any issues of your operation. All information in Incident Reports
stays within your company; it's not shared with external parties.
Only users that you authorize may look at Incident Reports.
Participating manufacturers are those who supply part number
lookup data (to reduce data entry time and errors) and accept
MMIR warranty claims electronically. Filing warranty claims
electronically reduces the need for manual data entry, creating
a reduction in workload and an increase in accuracy.
manufacturers may download MMIR data for their respective aircraft.

the program, and can be used to complement reliability engineering.
