I'm following up on my own post -- sorry. When I read C. Marin Faure's words about the lower center display (the multifunction display - MFD) being used for maintenance, my brain automatically thought EICAS. EICAS messages are something that the Central Maintenance Computer (CMC) will try to correlate a faulty LRU to. After I hit the "post" button, I remembered that there are other maintenance pages available on the MFD (via a CDU button). These pages can show data for various airplane systems that may help in fault isolation. My original point was and still is that the MAT (and PMATS) is (are) used to connect to the CMCF (or ACMF). The MFD maintenance pages do not connect the user to the CMCF (or ACMF).
