What We Do
Root cause analysis
- Classification, analysis & processing of service reports such as Aircraft Malfunction Report (AMR), Defect Investigation Report (DIR), etc.
- Identification of unsafe condition linked to reported defect, failure or malfunction
- Data integration into system for collecting, investigating and analysing reports related to failures, malfunctions, defects or other occurrences (e.g. FRACAS)
- Maintenance of database integrity / coherence / harmonization & integration of smart tools
- Determination of the level of hazard resulting from an occurrence
- Proposal of appropriate Corrective Actions and analysis of its sufficiency
- Redaction of Airworthiness Directives
- Support for interactions with EASA or corresponding certification agency
On determination of an unsafe condition, a Corrective Action (CA) must be proposed to the agency. For catastrophic failure conditions, the establishment of a rectification campaign to remedy the discovered defect is expected as per EASA Part 21.A.3B.
- Establishment of a rectification campaign to remedy a discovered defect associated to a catastrophic failure condition
- Identification of short-term alleviating actions
- Identification of fleet exposed to residual risk after alleviating actions
- Calculation of the likely catastrophic rate for each aircraft in fleets
- Assessment that the aggregated risk for the rectification campaign is within limits
- Deployment plan for rectification campaigns:
- Propose ICA modifications (AMM, Maintenance Instructions, etc.)
- Iterate modifications to reliability parameters with supplier
- Adapt maintenance, procurement or quality procedures
- Interface with suppliers to request Corrective Actions based on computed MTBF and their provided GMTBF (Guaranteed MTBF)
Beyond the activities strictly related to engineering, we offer management support in technical decision making:
- Non-advocate report on the sufficiency of proposed Corrective Actions
- Business case for corrective actions: comparison of cost of action to risk cost
- Planning and project management of rectification campaigns

Failure Reporting and Corrective Actions System provides a platform for analysing failures, and planning activities in response to those failures.
Master Maintenance Plan
The MMP is an organized process to harmonize the scheduling of the maintenance plan for every product of the customer’s fleet.
Certification plan and expert support
The process guarantees that only the products that comply with one of the regulatory bodies are able to fly.
