Wiring Practice & Standardization Solution #1 • Continue to develop cabin standards: • via Arinc 628 (CEI) • implement new IACC committee under Arinc • get more industry support (esp. seats & airlines) • Target: end of year for new IACC operational • Focal: Dan Martinec and Rich Salter
New IACC committee Arinc Board of Directors AEEC IACC Others The CEI subcommittee needs to move to report to the new IACC (Int’l Airlines Cabin Comm.) CEI
Wiring Practice & Standardization Solution #2 • Create a top level overview of Arinc 628 to provide to industry (Parts 1-8) • To educate industry of what standards exist & point out future needs • And as a tool for airlines to gain support of IACC • Target: Draft by March 30 (complete), Final provided June 30 at Arinc CEI meeting for review and acceptance. • Focal: Rob Hofmann & Han Gim

Wiring Practice & Standardization Solution #3 • Seat inspection/review personnel inconsistency was discussed at length. This inconsistency between the various personnel has been a source of difficulty during the seat inspection. It was mentioned that the current guidelines allow for too much subjective opinion. Arinc 628, Part 5, needs to be adopted as the industry standard and inspection/review personnel need to become familiar with and use this document to reduce subjective inspection results.
Wiring Practice & Standardization Solution #4 • Concentrate on standardization of invisible parts • e.g., Seat box, cables, brackets, shrouds, items not desired to be seen by pax. • Target: Immediately after this meeting via email request from seat suppliers. • Focal: Dan M. (getting specs to seat suppliers) • Target: Ongoing (see solution #1) • Focal: CEI (via Arinc 628 doc.)
Wiring Practice & Standardization Solution #5 • All seat suppliers are to produce their seat assembly and wiring installation drawings with a level of detail that assures manufacturing repeatability and ultimately inspection result repeatability.
Wiring Practice & Standardization Solution #6 • Earl Nicks, from Arinc, once again offered to provide Arinc 628 documents to the various seat suppliers one time free of cost. He also mentioned that Part 5 draft, is available from the Arinc web site. The task of contacting the various seat suppliers to review and comment on Arinc 628, Part 5, was agreed to by all present. The seat supplier responses are to be returned to Earl and Sheryl at firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com by July 28, 2000. These responses will be reviewed for inclusion into Arinc 628, Part 5. Suggestion was made to meet again during the Aug. 29-31, 2000 Working Group meeting being held at Boeing Recreational Facility in Everett, WA to discuss the changes.
Wiring Practice & Standardization Solution #7 • Seat suppliers concerned about IFE cable length tolerance and available harness length increments. The current range of in-seat harness lengths is from exact length to 4 and 6 inch increments.
