Benefits Of Using A Traveler Tag Versus A Parts Tag On Removed Parts

The Thermal Control System (TCS) tracking system has been in use since 1989 under the Shuttle Processing Data Management System II (SPDMS2). It was enhanced in 1992 to support the first Orbiter Maintenance Downtime Period (OMDP) for the Shuttle Orbiter Discovery (OV-103) at KSC and reduced processing rates to 33 TCS blankets in 15 minutes, with a program savings estimated at $90K per flow. In 2006, a conversion from the original LSOC1 program to Oracle brought many more enhanced features. This system greatly enhanced processing of over 35,000 parts in the TCS inventory, both in the vehicles and in Logistics.
