Fixing Field Service Problems: Improving Service Technician Efficiency and Productivity
Improving field service performance is a matter of making the right information available, whenever and wherever it’s needed. Giving the field service team updated parts and service information not only enables them to perform maintenance and repairs more quickly and effectively, it also reduces field service operations costs. Download this white paper to learn how Enigma InService EPC makes it easy to deliver parts and service information to "the last mile," where the field service technicians work, in a depot or on-site.

The InService MRO 5.0 Suite for Automated Content Distribution
Aircraft, locomotives and other complex equipment rely on sophisticated processes to deliver accurate information to the maintenance/repair location. These practices must support large quantities of data, manage a variety of document structures and formats, reflect current inventory and equipment configurations, and help ensure safety and regulatory compliance. An automated approach that reduces human intervention is required.

The Technology Behind Enigma
The Enigma Platform readily integrates content from multiple existing back-office information systems to create a unified and coherent view of a product’s installation, operation, maintenance and repair information. Enigma solutions combine easy navigation of maintenance information with real-time access to configuration and inventory information, providing users with a fully integrated as-maintained product encyclopedia.

Seven Steps to Put Parts and Service Information Online
Manufacturers aim to ensure that customers can quickly find and order the right part, procedure or service bulletin online. Putting technical content online can be relatively easy (with the right parts catalog technology). However, OEMs seeking a meaningful improvement in customer satisfaction must prepare (clean and organize) parts and service information before it is placed on the Web. This allows the OEM to provide accurate parts and service data, drive additional revenue and, ultimately, fully integrate part sales and logistics.
This white paper helps OEMs understand and overcome the challenges of data cleansing. It also suggests an approach for structuring parts and service information so that it can be quickly delivered to the Web and easily understood by customers.

An Integrated Maintenance Logistics Solution for Defense
Traditionally defense agencies have relied on interactive electronic technical manuals (IETMs) to conduct maintenance and engineering tasks. However, Enigma has a new solution that exceeds the capability of a Class V IETM: the Integrated Maintenance/Logistics (E-IML) application. E-IML provides a single electronic interface, allowing the maintainer to access all maintenance, logistics and operational information for multiple weapons systems or platforms, from diagnostic alerts to part orders.
