Statistical Analysis for AMP & Reliability Engineers – 1 Day


Per AMC4 CAMO.A.305(g) – “Personnel Requirements Subpara (d), Personnel involved in developing and amending/reviewing the AMP, in assessing its effectiveness and/or working on reliability programme, should have knowledge of or be trained on statistical analysis and reliability method and the applicable methodology used in developing, as part of the instructions for continuing airworthiness (ICA), the manufacturer recommended maintenance programme (such as maintenance steering group logic).”

As per the requirement, the effective statistical analysis provides the fundamental mechanism to proactively seek, identify and quantify aircraft maintenance relabiity trends by utilising failure mode and failure rate data. Not least ascertain the effectiveness of the aircraft maintenance programme.

This highly interactive 1-day workshop delivers a practical understanding of the statistical mathematics behind aircraft maintenance reliabiity analysis, not least provides the basis for demonstrable compliance with AMC4 CAMO.A.305(g)

During the workshop delegates will consider mathematical problems and interpret the data with a view to key decisions regarding maintenance programme effectiveness, individual task development and component reliability.

Who is the course for?

It is for persons who are actively involved in the management or Interaction of the organizations Reliability Management System including Aircraft or Component Maintenance Planners, Maintenance Programme Engineers, Aircraft Maintenance Reliability Engineers & managers.

What is the Benefit of this training? What will I learn?

State that Reliability is a function of mathematical probability an apply probability laws correctly

Delegates will be able to demonstrate statistical mathematics methodology & apply probability laws effectively.

Ensuring the correct interpretation of reliability data with a view to ascertaining the effectiveness of the Aircraft Maintenance Programme.

When to alert, when to watch and when no action is necessary or when to clear from the alert.

Provide & deliver effective reporting solutions that are immediately understood by personnel not familiar with reliability & statistical Analysis.

Why Should I Choose SAS for the training?

Sofema Aviation Services a Regulatory training and consulting company with 45 years of commercial aviation experience and 12 years of operational experience. Since we started we have provided certificates to approx 25,000 delegates we have grown for 2 primary reasons!
The first is that we are professional and we listen to our customers. Please visit our download area as an example of how we engage with our customers.

The second is not only the fact that our prices are far more cost-effective than our competitors it is that our discount program leaves all the others way behind – please do not take our word for it check it out!

What makes SAS Reliability Mathematics: Statistical Analysis for AMP & Reliability Engineers – 1 Day different?

Our courses are written by people who have lived through the development of aircraft maintenance and reliability programmes.

At Sofema Aviation Services our focus is only on the development of reliability systems, processes and procedures as a matter of compliance with regulations, but going further to ensure that delegates who are new to the subject are presented with all of the information, insight and advice necessary to return to their desks and ‘hit-the-ground-running’ and to satisfy National Aviation Authorities that those in volved with AMP effectiveness and reliability possess the correct knowledge level as a part of the oversight of competence.

Detailed Content / Topics:

1. Mathematical Probability & its’ relationship with the Aviation Reliability construct;
2. The Basics of Distribution (Normal & Poisson) and it’s application to maintenance forecasting;
3. Upper Control Limits – Calculating and setting Standard & Alert Levels for ATA Chapters;
4. Data Display & Aircraft Maintenance Reliability Reporting Guidelines.

Target Groups:

By the end of this workshop, the delegate will:
• Explain the reliability concept;
• Apply the laws of mathematical probability;
• Utilise statistical formulae found in typical spreadsheet software;
• Forecast failure rate or Failure probability using distribution curves;
• Explain Standard Deviation, set and manage Upper Control Limits;
• Describe graphical and tabular reporting, which to use and when.


A background understanding related to continuing airworthiness management subjects, together with aviation reliability is an advantage, however, specific reliability and statistical mathematics competencies are not essential.

Learning Objectives:

Understand and apply the basic skills and knowledge to utilise statistical mathematics in terms of process for the correct analysis, interpretation and reporting of reliability data.
