Abstract

This project outlines the development of a maintenance tracking tool for the Broach area in Lynn Plant 1 at General Electric Aircraft Engines. Using standard system development methodologies, a software tool was created by Microsoft Visual Studio 2003 and Access. This tool allows shop floor labor to input maintenance requests, tracks those requests for maintenance personnel, and generates reports to aid in management's scheduling of shop floor operations. This saves GE money by allowing them to efficiently schedule machine maintenance.
