Aircraft Reliability Improvement and Maintenance Cost Optimization

25 - 29 January 2016, Singapore
This course is focused on aircraft reliability programs as part of the operators maintenance program, with emphasis on
issues related to maintenance cost analysis. Asset Management Concept as applied to Aircraft, its structure and components will be discussed in detail. Maintenance strategy and various concepts may reduce cost, but they need to be
integrated to ensure high reliability levels. Continued compliance with the regulatory requirements, while fulfilling the
challenges of cost reductions and effective maintenance programs, is of paramount importance. Regulatory Authorities
and Operators should be on the same level of understanding.
Within a 5-day period you will be provided with guidance for the implementation of RCM based Reliability Programs
and you will focus on the monitoring task and the relevance of the efficiency of the Maintenance Program, in order to
fulfill the regulatory requirements and to avoid unnecessary maintenance cost. Case studies with practical examples will
complement this course.
Continuing airworthiness is to be delivered by the aircraft Manufacturer for the establishment of an approved aircraft
operators aircraft maintenance program and must contain the necessary details, including frequencies, of all maintenance required to be carried out for a safe and economical aircraft operation. Implementation of such aircraft maintenance program requires the preparation and planning of the maintenance tasks. These tasks are normally based upon
the Maintenance Review Board Report and the Manufacturers Maintenance Planning Recommendation as detailed in
the Maintenance Planning Document (MPD). In order to establish an operators maintenance program, the tasks and
periods (interval/ frequencies) at which each part of the aircraft, engines, APUs, components, accessories, equipment,
instruments, electrical and communication apparatus, and associated systems and installations should be inspected.
Such implementation includes the periods at which items as appropriate should be checked, cleaned, lubricated, replenished, adjusted and tested as well.
This course will be focused on RCM based approach, integration of Heavy Maintenance of airframe , Engines and
LRUs / components. Practical exercises on individual critical components will supplement the course.
Training Methodology
The training will be facilitated using modern techniques supported by case studies from real aviation environment. The
operator reliability program development and implementation will be discussed in detail. The Analysis tools application
to maintenance, reliability and failure analysis of aircraft, its systems, components and structures will be exercised with
mini workshop within the sessions. The audiences are requested to bring their laptops to exercise analysis softwares with
their own Aircraft / Engine data. In addition Aircraft Maintenance cost trends / breakdowns will be discussed in detail.
