Statistical Analysis for AMP & Reliability Engineers – 1 Day


Per AMC4 CAMO.A.305(g) – “Personnel Requirements Subpart (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 reliability 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 reliability 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.

Detailed Content / Topics:

  • Mathematical Probability & its’ relationship with the Aviation Reliability construct.
  • The Basics of Distribution (Normal & Poisson) and it’s application to maintenance forecasting.
  • Upper Control Limits – Calculating and setting Standard & Alert Levels for ATA Chapters.
  • 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.

Certificate Wording

Mathematical Probability & Aviation Reliability, The Reliability Concept, Using Distribution Curves for Forecasting Maintenance & Reliability, Standard Deviation & its’ importance, How & where to use Alert Level Deviation, Descriptive Statistics – Presenting Intuitive & Meaningful Reliability Report, The unicorn Airline – Reliability Report Demonstration.
