ASMS: Quality Assurance
The current aviation industry is experiencing a constant increase in the number of complex and diverse networks of government or business organizations in addition to an increase the advancement of equipment used for aircraft development. As a result of the change, the organizations are required to continually adapt to the meet the required relevance and viability. Collection and analysis of data in the aviation industry have a vital role to play. Airline companies are required to take advantage of the useful information generated by analysis of different forms of data in the reduction of equipment downtime and improvement of operational efficiencies.
Use of data collection, analysis and trending in program planning processing
Data collection and processing in the aviation industry is a very important tool for the companies in this industry to conduct the internal evaluation of the company’s Safety Management System (SMS). Through such evaluations, the company is able to determine whether SMS is in line with its expectations and objectives. The company should take into account the findings of the evaluations performed on a previous date. Furthermore, there is a need to use the data carefully to ensure that the safety criticality of the program under evaluation is put into account. A well guided data collection, processing and trending in the aviation industry can bring revolution in the evaluations defined in aviation companies (Vinshnu, 2014).
Aviation companies are now collecting data using sensors that gather information about the nearby environment as well as jet engines. The data collected about the surroundings may include air pressure, humidity and temperature. This data can be used by service providers in developing a process that can predict failure of different parts. Such plans allow the service providers to conduct tasks aimed at preventing accidents in this industry. This can be seen as a way of saving a lot of money since it is less expensive to have a soon-to-fail part replaced before it fails than having to replace the failed part during an important operation.
Collection, analysis and trending of departures/arrivals data in the aviation technology can be used to develop a plan that will lead to better services and customer satisfaction. These plans give the companies in the aviation industry a chance to reduce the number of canceled and delayed flights. Furthermore, congestion during plane boarding is reduced as a way of increasing security levels. It is important to note that the increase in customer satisfaction as a result of reduced delays can lead to improved customer royalty accompanied by an increase in the number of bookings. Data collection and analysis can allow the airline companies to come up with clear flying patterns of their customers. With a detail of these patterns, the companies can develop new routes as well as new services for...
