Abstract

A method is shown of separating soft-copy text from soft-copy Maintenance Analysis Procedures (MAPs). This allows usage of soft-copy MAPs for diagnostics in limited display and/or storage environments. The text, which is normally presented in a soft-copy format, is presented in a hard-copy format referred to as a hard-/soft-copy MAP. The display contains a minimal number of variable fields to direct the Customer Engineer (CE) to the appropriate text and accept input from the CE.
