I'm new to ATP and putting in data for my aircraft. In the tutorials it shows to start building a data base using the maintenance tab going through all the AD's & SB's. Then on the Profile tab you can do the same thing but with more input detail and different format. In a few cases some of the data transferred over but not all. When updating aircraft times on the one tab, it did not update the times on the other tab. Maybe I don't understand the purpose of each of the tabs. Why would you need to go through all the AD's and SB's twice?
The idea is you would only use one of the features. The Profile & Compliance tool has been around for years and is a nice compliance tracking tool but does not provide much in the way of forecasting future requirements. ATP Maintenance is a new feature added this year that is targeted to forecasting. If you are starting fresh I would just use ATP Maintenance so you have compliance tracking and forecasting.
Hope this helps. Feel free to give us a call for more information.
