Maintenance Error Decision Aid (MEDA) Training Course & Workshop – 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. This training takes the understanding of the entire MEDA process to a deeper level so that following the training the Delegate will be able to:

a) Develop comprehensive understandings of the MEDA process

b) Understand effective techniques for training your own employees in the implementation of MEDA systems.

c) Undertake Case Study analysis and practice completion of the MEDA Results form and Interview Process
