Currently, when an asset is loaded in PA, it is assigned to one Mx Activity by Maint Grp Id via the Maint Mgmt Assign. This means that all assets assigned to a specific UIC can only be pointed toward one specific Mx Activity only. However, we need the capability to have assets assigned to one main UIC but have the option to point to several different Mx Activities when mission dictates.
Recommend adding a feature to point assets to a specific Mx Activity at the asset level. There are many AF units that are responsible for their assets on one property book (UIC) however, the assets are often spread across several different bases. This creates a situation where we are forced to give bases access to several Mx Activities or have bases manually pass work order information to the base that the asset officially resides on.
This is mission critical. Having the work order maintenance history on all assets directly affects the assets life cycle, vital to projecting asset replacements.
This change will vastly reduce time as it relates to work order reporting and accurately depict the assets operation and maintenance costs needed for projecting an assets end of life.
The entire Air Force component as well as other services will benefit from accurate Mx Activity assignment.
