Maintenance Error Decision Aid (MEDA) “Train the Trainer”- 3 Days

Introduction –

The Maintenance Error Decision Aid (MEDA) process was developed by Boeing and is a proven and effective tool, for not only investigating the various causal factors but in also developing mitigations.
The basic MEDA philosophy is based on an understanding that people do not intentionally make errors and that organizational factors play a significant and contributory role.

It is widely recognized that the majority of causal and contributory factors leading to an error can be managed.  In addition, developing root cause understandings leads to a wider and more effective mitigation process.
