This thesis is focused on problem areas when implementing PumaX for developing the maintenance plan for the Gripen fighter. Experience with PumaX as a tool exists and these have been analyzed to define specific problem areas. Because of too great extent four items were selected – customization, faulty data, quality assurance and serial status. Through examination of previous experiences theoretical solution suggestions has been developed. Schematics for corrective actions and a separate application were done to take care of the customization. In the application it was revealed that possible faulty data could also be corrected.

After an analysis of how the serial status concept could be implemented it was revealed that not all functions in PumaX could be used when applying the serial status.
