H (AWP)-Space used to display VIDS/ MAFs for equipment and/or components that are in awaiting parts status.
I (COMPLETED)-Space used to temporarily store copy 3 of the VIDS/MAF from the time a work center reports an item RFI or BCM until copy 1 of the VIDS/MAF is returned to production control. Copy 3 is then removed and stored in another temporary location until the return of copy 1 from DSF. This column is optional.
SE Production Control Board
The SE production control board (fig. 4-15) provides a graphic display of information on SE end items and components being repaired. Refer to figure 4-15 as you read this section for the location of the spaces referred to below.
A (EQUIP)-Space used to list equipment alphabetically by noun nomenclature. Each specific type of equipment is listed alphanumerically by model and/or part number under the proper nomenclature. The number of pockets required for each model/part number is based upon inventory quantity.
B (AWM)-Space used to display VIDS/MAFs for equipment and/or components that are in a backlog or pending status.
C (IN WORK)-Space used to show VID/MAFS for equipment and/or components that are currently being processed.
D (AWAITING PARTS)-Space used to display VIDS/MAFs for equipment and/or components that are in an awaiting parts status.
For purposes of standardization and to ensure that the minimum information is displayed on VIDS boards, the following information should be included when setting up an organizational maintenance VIDS board:
Number of aircraft assigned and projected flights
Work center load and work center manning
Aircraft current discrepancy status
Aircraft airframe/engine component time
Before setting up the VIDS board, maintenance control personnel must decide what method to use to show types of discrepancies and/or maintenance actions. Should color fillers within the pockets be used? Should NMC/PMC signs be used? Or, should another locally desired method be used? Depending upon the method or methods
