  1. Manual for ESA dmpl tool Version 2012 ESA DMPL Tool manual

  2. Setup for DMPL Tool • Resposibility of Prime contractor • The prime sets up the users/password relationships in the tool • The prime inserts the subssystem and equipment data • The prime distributes the subs and subprime databases. • Resposibility of subprime • Identical to the ones of the prime • Resposibility of subcontractors • Populating the database with MMPP data • Sending the database back to subprime/prime ESA DMPL Tool manual

  3. Content • Setup for DMPL Tool • Password system • Starting the DMPL tool • Updating DMPL database • Communication with servers • Layouts of screens • Approval system • Associated DML’s • Printing • Exporting • Filemanagement (for prime only) • Subcontractors screens • Compact and Repair • Help screens • Import of data ESA DMPL Tool manual

  4. Users/password system Prime password Customer password Subcontr.1 password Subcontr.2 password SubPrime1 password Subcontr.3 password Subcontr.4 password SubPrime2 password Subcontr.6 password Subcontr.5 password ESA DMPL Tool manual

  5. Opening screen This is the opening screen. It shows four buttons: about, Close, check for update and communication connection and a documentation area. The first action is the enter the project name Give project name ESA DMPL Tool manual

  8. Enter project name The project name is an important parameter in the ESA dmpl tool. It determines the directory visible in the WebDav server and it is the entry point for the password check. ESA DMPL Tool manual

  9. Ini file check and open database Check for ini file After entering the project name, a check is made if a dmpl.ini file exists on the start-up directory. If no ini file exists a new one is created with the correct project entry. If an ini file is present a check is made for the project entry. The ini file contains a project entry, the contractor shortname and a flag for the absence/presence of a mech. parts list. Select database ESA DMPL Tool manual

  10. Select database Select database After pressing the select database from disk button, a selection screen opens (same directory as the ESA Tool programme) and one can select a database. Change directory as required. Press OPEN to open the database. Open button ESA DMPL Tool manual
