Paper Abstract

When a cockpit display is squawked by the pilot due to an observed problem, the normal maintenance action that follows is to replace the display. It is often found that the replaced display shows the same problem and the source of the problem is elsewhere in the system. This paper discusses a unique feature as part of the display architecture currently used by Astronautics, which uses the display to indicate to the maintenance technician, while on the aircraft, if there is a system problem. This greatly reduces maintenance times due to unnecessary display replacements.
