CY. Example: 1-91, 2-91, 3-91, etc. On the first ETR of each year, report the last CY ETR, Example: 1-91 LAST CY ETR 154-90 DTG 312200Z DEC 90. The number of reports that can be submitted in any given CY are limitless.
In addition to the number assigned to the ETR, each transaction reported (fig. 7-10) must be serialized. For example, if the first ETR submitted by a reporting custodian contains four transactions, the first transaction would be 001, the second transaction 002, and the third transaction 003, etc. These ETR report numbers are reported in data element field 0 on all transaction reports. Transaction serial numbers commence with 001 for the first transaction reported for the CY, and will increase sequentially for each transaction reported throughout the CY to a maximum of 999. If an activity exceeds 999 transactions within any given CY, numbering will begin again with 001.
Each horizontal line (where possible) in a message-type ETR details one engine transaction. They are submitted in this format to facilitate the direct key entry to an on-line data processing system used by controlling custodians to transmit engine data to the Naval Air Systems Command Headquarters. The data in each column should be aligned with a straight margin on the left. An ETR should contain only information directly concerned with engine management. OPNAV X-RAY reports and ETR reports WILL NOT be submitted as a combined report.
Reporting custodians may use different reporting formats, but the data reported under the various fields is practically identical. If you understand the use of status codes, STAR codes, and data elements, you should have little difficulty preparing ETRs, no matter where you are assigned.
Upon determination that an error has been made in the submission of an ETR, a correction report should be sent immediately. Correction reports are normally submitted as a two-line report for each correction being submitted. These reports are prepared in the same basic format as regular reports. Correction reports submitted independently should refer only to data reported in the original report and should include the same action/information addressees as the original. Correction reports submitted at the direction of higher authority should include the reference directing the resubmission.
Correction reports are not assigned the next sequential ETR number since they are correcting previously submitted ETRs. The first line of the message text repeats the information previously reported in error, with the exception of adding the word delete at the end of the transaction line. The second line of the report contains the corrected information and the word correct at the end of the transaction line. For example, if a unit had previously submitted an ETR incorrectly reporting the Bureau Number (BUNO) of an aircraft, the text of the correction ETR would be as shown in figure 7-11. The reporting custodian identifies the report being corrected by date-time group, and ETR number/date. The complete erroneous ETR line will appear on the correction message, identified by the transaction serial/line number of the original transaction.
Correction reports should not be considered as a reflection on the reporting capabilities of an activity. These reports are submitted for the singular purpose of correcting the controlling custodian's engine file.
Engine reporting custodians submit an EOQ report of installed engines. This report includes data up to 2400 on the last day of the quarter. The type of engine reported determines the reporting quarters. All type M, O, R, and T (except T56) engines are reported as of 2400 on 31 January, 30 April, 31 July, and 31 October. All type T56 turboshaft engines are reported as of 2400 on 28/29 February, 31 May, 31 August, and 30 November. All turbojet/turbofan engines, types F, J, and TF, are reported 31 March, 30 June, 30 September, and 31 December.
This report includes all engines in an installed status regardless of location. Therefore, engines in the reporting custodian's aircraft that are in pools, SDLM, and commercial facilities must be included. It is the responsibility of the reporting custodian to contact activities having physical custody of the aircraft engines to determine the correct number of hours to be reported.
The EOQ report is to be submitted via naval message not later than 2400 hours on the third working day following the end of the calendar month in which the engine is to be reported; this will allow for data entry into the AEMS data base by the fifth working day. Reporting custodians with access to on-line AEMS terminals will enter reports not later than 5 working days following the end of the reporting month. An example ofContinue Reading
