Maintenance Error Management System & MEDA Essentials for Executives – 1 Day


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:

Develop comprehensive understandings of the MEDA process.

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

Maintenance Error Management System & MEDA Essentials for Executives a 1 day industry specific training aimed at Executives and Business Leaders who require an overview and awareness of MEMS Systems.

Who is the Course for?

It is for anyone with an interest to understand as an executive overview of Maintenance Error Management System (MEMS) and to achieve a deeper understanding of Maintenance Error Decision Aid within a 145 Maintenance Organisation

Consider that understanding the MEDA process is the starting point – The real advantage is use MEDA as a Tool to provide “Data” to the SMS and to enable the optimisation of the business in the best way whilst remaining fully compliant with EASA Part 145 requirements.

What is the Benefit of this Training – What will I learn?

a)Awareness of the structure composition and impact of 145 Maintenance Error on the Organisation

b) Understand the forces driving 145 Maintenance Errors to focus your business decision process on improved engagement with employees

c) Confidence in a detailed knowledge of the key components of MEMS
