Save Paper- Save the Earth

Save Paper- Save the Earth

Sustainability Challenge

Flight test engineers create scripts containing large numbers of test conditions in word documents. The information in these documents is sourced from Test Summary Sheets documents (TSS). These documents are manually reviewed and approved by test management groups after which a Matrix is created using conditions from the script. Test Conditions Matrix (TCM), allows defining the test order resulting in a Microsoft Word based sequence document. A manual sequence document of test conditions is created by picking multiple test conditions from different sheets as specified in the TCM. This document guides and helps test pilots and engineers to test and certify the aircraft. The entire process requires high level of data accuracy. Not only do failures introduce a risk while flying the aircraft, paper-consumption is high in this process. 
 

Our Solution and Differentiator

HCLT delivered a work-flow based  solution to streamline, automate and expedite test planning and script generation process. The solution retained the essence of earlier manual process while identifying areas where paper can be conserved. An intelligent XML-based document was created with hidden XML Tags not visible to the end-user. The solution not only conserves paper but also generates sequence documents in minutes. Crystal reports are used for generating reports.
 

Business Benefits

The manual system incorporated printing and passing many sheets of paper for approval. Comments were written on hard copies and the updated copy was circulated again. This process continued back and forth till processes were approved. With HCLT’s solution, approvals, comments and updates are automated in a centralized repository. Prior versions are made available in the system for reference. Through this solution, our customer realized a significant savings in paper consumption.
