    Document Structure

    1. General Information

    See schema 1. General Information.

    2. Function of the System to be Maintained

    The overall function is described with regard to SWMM tasks. The descriptions from the development documents have to be used as a source.

    3. Diagnosis Environment

    3. 1. Required Software Tools

    3. 2. Required Computers and Devices

    3. 3. Other Equipment and Tools

    3. 4. Provisioning the Environment

    This describes how the named software tools, computers, devices, and equipment for the diagnosis environment have to be combined. While doing so, the interfaces to the System (or to parts thereof) must be considered. If necessary, references to the appropriate manuals have to be included.

    3. 5. Operation of the Environment

    Notes about the general operation of the environment (resources, data media, general handling of devices and tools, etc.) are given. This does not yet include the realization of the actual diagnosis activities.

    4. Diagnosis

    4. 1. Diagnostic Possibilities

    The tools to be used to diagnose situations, errors and defects must be listed in a clearly defined way. It is also necessary to state when a diagnosis is not possible or when it would not be very successful.

    4. 2. Diagnosis Tools

    If a large number of diagnosis tools is available they have to be collected in the form of an overview.

    4. 2. t. Tool (t)

    The individual tools available (computers, testbench, software, etc.) are described on the basis of their application fields and goals.

    Note: "t" is used for consecutive numbers of diagnosis tools from 4.2.1 to 4.2.n and as place holder for the tool identifier.

    To realize a diagnosis, the following items have to be described:

    For the evaluation of the diagnosis, the following items have to be described:

    4. 3. Errors during Operation

    In addition to the User Manual where error messages are described from the user's point of view and with regard to the assistance of a user, the diagnosis manual describes error messages in much greater detail and from maintenance aspects in order to better support the system operation.

    4. 3. e. Error Message (e)

    The exact wording of the error message or the warning/error signals to the operator have to be listed in the form of an overview.

    Note: "e" is used for consecutive numbers of the error messages from 4.3.1 to 4.3.n and as place holder for the name of the error.

    The following information must be listed for each error message:

    4. 4. Reference to the User Manual

    In the case of errors that usually result from operating errors, references should be made to the corresponding passages in the User Manual.

    5. Other General Information

    This is where further relevant information can be found. Particularly the information on how to handle and support off-the-shelf-products and how to process SWMM (in submodel CM) are very important.
