Release Notes - FuelsManager Aviation Version 7.1 Service Pack 4

Release Date - 12.12

Overview

The enhancements delivered in this release include the following:

  • Arrival Wing to Wing Balance feature for Delta Mainline aircraft
  • DCU digital output permissive for GSE operations

In addition to these enhancements, this release includes several bug fixes along with improved DCU communication fixes for both the IntoPlane Client and the Varec Wireless DCU.


Enhancements


Accounting

  • Resolved an issue in Accounting application where the Fuel_CP value in the IntoPlane/Accounting export file was always being set to zero.
  • Resolved an issue in Accounting ExSTARS plugin where the processing of transfer transactions caused a SQL syntax error related to the ACCT_TX13.TO_OWNER field.

Dispatch

  • The Dispatch system has been updated to resolve an issue where the processing of arrival flight messages from Delta causes the FTZ indicator to be set to false.

IntoPlane

  • Enhancement to the IntoPlane client to allow for wing to wing arrival fuel balance validation. The calculations are performed on the IntoPlane client, and all thresholds are configurable by aircraft type. If a threshold is exceeded the user has the option to select a reason code to associate with the transaction. This code is eventually sent to Delta Airlines for processing via the eFSR validation process. Because this feature is only required by Delta Airlines, the logic is only invoked for Delta Mainline flights.
  • Enhancement to the IntoPlane client to allow users to perform net volume calculations using a corrected gravity value associated with the product used in the transaction. This feature can be enabled or disabled and is used as a secondary option to the standard gravity configuration in the INI file.
  • Enhancement to the IntoPlane client to send a permissive command to the WDCU when performing GSE transactions. The permissive command in turn causes the DCU to send a digital output signal.  Users may use the digital signal for any purpose they choose. Along with the permissive command, the IntoPlane client also sends a maximum volume throughput value along with a permissive timeout value. These values are stored in the DCU upon configuration of the DCU. If these values are ever exceeded the DCU will disable the digital output signal.
  • Enhancement to the Aviation Configuration tool to allow users to specify the wing to wing arrival balance tolerance and also specify the lateral orientation of each tank with respect to the planes centerline. 
  • Enhancement to the Aviation Configuration tool to allow users to add, modify, or delete reason codes for arrival imbalance. These reason codes are synchronized with all IntoPlane clients using the existing reference data update process.
  • Enhancement to the Aviation Configuration tool  to allow users to specify the corrected gravity for any product configured in the system. The corrected gravity value is then synchronized with the product reference data on the IntoPlane client so that the IntoPlane client may perform net volume calculations at the wing.

Issues Addressed


IntoPlane

  • Resolved an issue in IntoPlane client where the Meter Start value was been lost after restarting the application.
  • Resolved an issue in IntoPlane client where the Destination field is populated with the same value over and over when the "Destination Check" INI setting is configured with the value of 3.
  • Resolved an issue in Accounting Export where the incorrect ìMeter Nameî value is placed in the file.
  • Resolved an issue in IntoPlane client where the meter start values for a GSE Transaction was not properly populated with the totalizer value from the DCU.
  • Resolved an issue in IntoPlane client where the client was causing the WDCU to reset multiple times during a fueling operation.
  • Resolved an issue in IntoPlane client where the pop-up keyboard was not accepting entries from the numeric keypad on the keyboard.
  • Resolved an issue in IntoPlane client where rotating pop-up messages continued to appear if a user remained on the finish fueling screen.
  • Resolved an issue in IntoPlane client and server where the connection verification process was causing the operating system to deplete the number of source and destination TCP ports allocations. This issue caused several other services like SQL server, or any other network related service, to experience communication timeouts.
  • Resolved an issue in IntoPlane client and WDCU to provide much more reliable communications when within Bluetooth communication range.
  • Resolved an issue in IntoPlane client to ensure that all DCU registered meter movements (particularly those less than one gallon) are captured.
  • Resolved an issue in IntoPlane client to ensure that the last meter value is always properly captured when finishing a GSE transaction.
  • Resolved an issue in IntoPlane client to ensure that the Net Volume indicator in the FSR is unset when the temperature is invalid.
  • Resolved an issue in IntoPlane client to ensure that a window control has proper focus after completing a GSE equipment configuration entry.
  • Resolved an issue in IntoPlane client to ensure that the default values for the folder locations in the INI file are correct for the target device.
  • Resolved an issue in IntoPlane client to the ensure that the default value for the shutdown key sequence is CTRL-ALT-SHIFT-J.

Delta Airlines Custom Interfaces

  • The FuelsManager/Delta Turn Tracking FSR Validation Snap-in Interface has been updated to resolve an issue related to an error generated by an improper string formatting of the meter values stored in the FSR.  Since the meter values are now stored as floating point values, the interface now properly formats the meter values as floating point values rather than integer values.
  • The FuelsManager/Delta OSS FSR Validation Snap-in Interface has been updated to resolve an issue related to an error generated by an improper string formatting of the meter values stored in the FSR.  Since the meter values are now stored as floating point values, the interface now properly formats the meter values as floating point values rather than integer values.
  • The FuelsManager/Delta FEDS ACARS FSR Validation Snap-in Interface has been updated to resolve an issue related to an error generated by an improper string formatting of the meter values stored in the FSR.  Since the meter values are now stored as floating point values, the interface now properly formats the meter values as floating point values rather than integer values.

Installation

  • Resolved an issue in the installation image with the latest version of the Sentinel Hardware Key drivers to support Windows 7 OS configured systems.
  • Resolved an issue in the installation image that includes registry merge files that support the Windows 7 64 bit registry hive.
