What is Reliability and Maintenance Programme Management?

Reliability and Maintenance Programme Management refers to the systematic and strategic approach to ensuring the reliability, availability, and optimal performance of assets or systems within an aviation organisation. It involves the coordination of various activities, processes, and resources to maximise asset reliability and minimise downtime, thereby optimising maintenance practices and improving overall operational efficiency.

Course Overview

The course provides delegates with an insight in the development, approval and practical oversight of Aircraft Maintenance and Reliability Programmes. It highlights the significance of the interactions between design requirements, maintenance programme development, maintenance standards and inspection standards.

  • This course is suitable for individuals working in, or with oversight of the continuing Airworthiness Management of all aircraft types. It is equally suitable for both commercial and non-commercial owners and operators.
  • National Aviation Authorities: In particular, staff members having duties and responsibilities in line with the scope of this course.

This training course will include the following topics:

  • ICAO and EU regulations on Maintenance Programmes (MPs) and Reliability Programmes
  • The Type Certificate Holder processes, MRB process relating to developing A/C maintenance programmes (AMP)
  • Airworthiness Limitations, design requirements relating to scheduled maintenance
  • What is MSG? How does MSG 3 compare with MSG2/MSG1?
  • Safety Assessment of Systems
  • Regulations which will affect the approval, management and development of MPs such as:
  • Ageing structures / zonal inspections
  • Fuel system safety (CDCCL)
  • High intensity radiated frequency (HIRF)/Lightning HIRF
  • Electrical wire interconnect systems (EWIS)
  • Reliability Programmes and Reports
  • The processes associated with operator management of maintenance programmes including escalation and optimisation, engine and component off-wing programmes, alignment/bridging checks

By the end of this course, delegates will demonstrate understanding of the Maintenance and Reliability Programmes with the use of practical exercises, review of case studies, and group discussions. The main objective is also to reinforce the participants’ knowledge and understanding of the regulatory requirements and practical oversight of Aircraft Maintenance Programmes and Reliability Programmes.
