Organization of Maintenance in Airline Industry Airlines will have one facility for doing the major maintenance work and aircraft modifications and it will be known as the maintenance base. Aircrafts will be parked overnight at smaller maintenance facilities at an airline's hubs or at primary airports. Such facilities will be known as the major maintenance stations and the routine maintenance and stocking of a large supply of spare parts are performed there. Maintenance stations at airports form the third level of inspection and repair. The maintenance tasks carried out on an aircraft are of 5 categories: line/transit, A, B, C and D. Line/ Transit check – It is performed daily at the gate and may last for one hour.
The individual and, 3. The company and how they impact people’s safety-related behaviour. Theories of Human Factors As stated by James Reason of the University of Manchester, the human error problem can be viewed in two ways: 1. the person approach and 2. The
Problem of staff. In this case study, I found out there had human errors on staff. Human error is “A failure of a planned action to achieve a desired outcome” (Human error, n. d.). From the beginning part of the statement, we knew that the untrained anesthesiologist had make a wrong decision to accept the oxygen tank for the intention of saving Michael’s life. The human error made by medical worker In the human error classification, Reason (1990) said “Greater understanding of the why of human error is provided by a popular approach based, in part, on the distinction between whether the inappropriate action was intended or not”.
The organizational failures may not stand out to untrained bystanders. These organizational failures must be identified because, even though they may not be easily recognized, the failures of an organization’s oversite can lead to other human errors. When human factors and organizational failures happen at the same time, these types of events are likely to occur. This study will review these failures, and present recommendations by the National Transportation Safety
Because of its nature, aviation is extremely sensitive to any disruption. It is the crew who mainly guarantees the aircraft flight safety. Interfering with the crew's duties by unruly behaviour can therefore cause serious disturbance in the operation of the
Mechanical Error. The second most common cause of plane crashes is mechanical errors which accounts for about 22% of all aviation accidents. Mechanical error differs from pilot error, because when a critical system fails, the pilot may be at the mercy of the plane. Some mechanical errors occur because of a flaw in the plane’s design. For example, in 1974 a Turkish Airlines flight to France crashed because of
However, what’s amazing though is the size of errors that lead to those accidents in most cases. Maritime accidents that occur due to natural factors such as a ships being caught in an unexpected storm, unfavorable tides, strong winds etc. are totally beyond human control and also make up rather small part of the causes for maritime accidents. The reason why human errors play such a vital role in marine industry despite of excessive mechanization and technical advancement is that even with everything, marine industry remains a people’s industry. There are machines running on software programmed into a computer but you need a person on that computer to be looking into it.
The definition of maintenance objectives can be viewed as a max / min principle - maximizing the output of maintenance that meets the technical accuracy of the equipment, minimizing inputs for maintenance in terms of the number of employees, financial resources and costs in general. The most important thing is that all input factors interact with each other, considering that relatively small changes in any of the input factors can significantly affect the output or the working ability of the equipment. There are many concepts of maintenance and improvement strategies such as: TPM - total productive maintenance, RCM - reliability centred maintenance, RBI - risk based inspection, LCC – life cycle costing, CMMS - computerized maintenance management software, maintenance management, spare parts management etc. Problems arise when organizations use more than one concept simultaneously and start a new project in the middle of unfinished work, leading to the dissatisfaction of all participants in the project. The situation becomes even more complicated if the organization changed targets to improve maintenance from using increasing equipment effectiveness (reliability and availability) to reduce costs and vice
And that accident shows us communication is the most important emergency for air aviation. Because, inefficient communication is not kind of that can be fixed by pilot problem. At one pist there is not only one aircraft and huge accidents occured because of collision between two aircrafts. Thus, the pilot did not know the useful information means seeing events by a unaware pilot eyes everyting is alright. Some problems reasonable from communication, create huge and damaged
Pilots must navigate through dangerous weather, respond to mechanical issues and execute a safe takeoff and landing. Some plane accidents are caused when the pilots misread equipment, misjudge weather conditions or fail to recognize mechanical errors until it’s too late. Sometimes too, plane crashes happen when pilots become incapacitated during critical points of a flight. In 2005, a Helios Airways flight to Greece crashed because the flight cabin depressurized, incapacitating the entire flight crew. In 1976, a South African AW flight crashed when the captain suffered a heart attack and his first officer couldn’t
