Key role in planning and scheduling, makes it heart of maintenance and engineering program Primarily responsible For planning and scheduling all aircraft maintenance activities within the airline.
Centralized- forecasting planning and control done with in the organization with liaison at work centers during actual work Decentralized forecasting and planning done by organization and control done by personal at work center Most companies decentralized Overseen by a manager and followed with maintenance planner and long range planner
In charge of planning department and it's functions. Must be able to work with other parts of companies Route airplane to maintenance base in timely manner Take appropriate and nessisary actions which may affect the airlines daily operations
May be assigned to different maintenance bases and tracks the babe and usually contact for planning schedule Primary function to develops all scheduled work and/or work scope needs for all line maintenance and hanger maintenance. Tracks completion of all planned work
Does both short term and long term planning and forecasting of aircraft maintenance ( C checks, main base visit checks, structural repair, painting, lease returns, retirement, and up coming airworthiness directive) Develops work plan, ascertained logistics availability, and picks out with facility can better do the maintenance
Function actually does forecasting planning and control Old saying in book that captures gist of PP&C “plan your work, and work your plan” Production planning does the plan, control works the plan.
Activities include establishing maintenance workload for existing fleet, creating business plans, and being aware of any changes in the forecasting period. Includes long-term, intermediate term, and short term forecast. Long-term is for 5-10 years and general in nature and subject to revision Intermediate is for 3-5 years for large companies Short is for 1-2 years and pays attention to detail and manpower.
Deals with day to day activities Involves scheduling upcoming maintenance, and includes scheduling details and timeframe requirements. Involves planning of all maintenance activities; daily, 48 hour, transit checks, letter checks, and modifications.
Some are daily, 48 hour, biweekly, or weekly checks. PP&C responsible for scheduling and assuring completion.
If 2 or more Checks are scheduled on same day Task card may require to do 2 different maintenance activities that are similar. To reduce time and make sure some things are done twice, task cards may be combined.
Checks may be broken into parts to reduce time and manpower. Broken down into zonal type maintenance. Depending on size of airline, may brake down “C” checks into intervals.
Usually routine May mix in less than “A” check maintenance and/or SB’s and SL’s that do not require parts or much time. Still give work packages to review a week before scheduled date of maintenance.
Done usually once a year. Require more planning for take long time. Consists of routine, variable routine, and nonroutine. Routine are task done at specified interval Variable routine are task that vary from one check to another Nonroutine are task required from accomplishing routine task.
Tracks the ongoing work of maintenance to help readjust for the better Function allows for adjustment of the plan and keeps track of schedule. If things go out of plan, then control tracks the problem and sees ways to better predict time for maintenance. Actual schedule is destined to deviate
Line maintance checks. Are all for safety including, inspection inside, service of engine oil, hydrolic oil service, oxygen check, brakes inspections, and fuselage inspections Planning is responsible for monitoring work performed and updating maintenance stations required.
Important to know how much time is needed the perform the task so accurately planned. More information known, better planning could be made Less time on the ground, more time making profit.
