PTC MSG-3 Software That Ensures System Reliability For Aircraft

Maintenance Steering Group-3 (MSG-3) software allows organizations to adhere to the strict requirements for aircraft reliability mandated by the ATA (Air Transport Authority). The MSG-3 standard outlines a highly structured analysis to help identify and schedule reliability-centered maintenance tasks – or, tasks that will maximize the reliability, cost-effectiveness, and safety of the aircraft and its related systems.

PTC Windchill MSG-3 offers a systematic, step-by-step methodology to identify and schedule reliability-centered maintenance tasks in accordance with the MSG-3 standard. Context-sensitive questions derived from the standard are delivered in clear, easy-to-use, logic-enforced diagrams to guide the analyst through MSI (Maintenance Significant Item), SSI (Structurally Significant Item), Zonal, and L/HIRF (Lightning / High Intensity Radiation Field) analysis, failure effect categorization, and maintenance task selection for every system in the aircraft.
