Implications of active and latent failures and the benefits of maintenance resource training MRM are further discussed.
This qualitative research used a grounded theory approach to explore the decision-making processes and actions taken by aircraft maintenance technicians when confronted with an aircraft problem not contained in the aircraft maintenance manuals.
This relationship between the adverse outcome and latent failure requires a systematic approach to research and to establish the principles and information that can direct the corrective actions, preventive interventions and implementing defenses for managing the maintenance errors and risks.
Surrounding this open atmosphere, there should have systems that share important data whereby the workforce are encouraged to make reports with trust and fairness. The classic metaphor begins when each failure penetrates through the holes in every single layer of successive barrier, and they are concentrically aligned that the window of opportunity will be ripe to happen.
Countermeasures include barriers, defences and safeguards are implanted against latent and active failures since it is impracticable to eliminate errors nor can it be risk free holistically.
Investigators cited the causal of this accident was the failure of maintenance personnel to find fatigue cracks in the fuselage skin. The elements of occurrences and incidents are triggered through a big collection of weaknesses influenced by factors such as organizational flaws, ineffective supervision, preconditions for errors and violations, and unsafe acts Reason, The sample population recruitment yielded 19 participants for eight focus group sessions to obtain opinions, perceptions, and experiences related to the study problem.
It makes sense as a continuum effort to manage aviation maintenance errors and risks to enhance safety and performance in the long term through identifying them and implanting vital defenses. Conclusions from this study suggest Aircraft Maintenance Technician decision-making were influenced by experience, gaps in the Aircraft Maintenance Manuals, reliance on others, realizing the impact of decisions concerning aircraft airworthiness, management pressures, and legal concerns related to decision-making.
Nonprobability purposeful sampling was used to obtain aircraft maintenance technicians with the experience sought in the study problem.
Aircraft accident investigators and researchers examined the factors that influence aircraft maintenance technician errors and categorized the types of errors in an attempt to prevent similar occurrences.
