EASA Part 145 Rotary Aviation Production Planning – 4 Days

Introduction

This unique course focuses on a deep understanding of the roles and responsibilities of the Rotary Production Planner, the Stakeholders, hazards and risks that challenge this mandated function within Rotorcraft Maintenance.

Whilst the responsibility for delivery of an effective Maintenance Planning process falls on the Operator the delivery of an effective Production Planning function sits firmly with the Maintenance Organization to ensure a safe, efficient and well managed Maintenance input.

The role of the Production Planner is significant and varied and can contribute to significant savings within an Organisation, if accomplished effectively.

Production Planning helps facilitate cost effective production and plays a part in delivering savings. The challenge is to identify efficient business processes that can be used to gather the data, analyze and measure the opportunities and implement and encourage continual improvement.

The need for successful project managing of every maintenance input should be considered as a requirement not just to increase profitability and safety but to enhance the reputation of the Maintenance Organisation. Developing the best Procedures and processes within Production planning that interface with Operators, Airworthiness Organisations and departments and Staff within the Maintenance Organisation can help ensure Aircraft return to Operators and Clients on time.

The importance of Managing and developing Competencies is considered as well as understanding the Quality Control and Assurance Process’s in Production Planning.

The course will focus on ensuring Staff and Nominated personnel are aware of best practice and how best to develop existing processes in Production Planning
