As the team responsible for Human Factors

As the manager on the team responsible for Human Factors of Red Dragon Airways, I need to make sure requirements for servicing of Boeing 737 on a rolling basis. The hanger itself is available and can fit the B737 comfortably for size. For safety we have to ensure requirements must meet for servicing of these aircraft to go ahead. Aircraft maintenance has many features in similar with other industries. The physical facilities in which aircraft maintenance technicians work, in any case, are unique. This is the only industry that uses quite the combination of facilities, including exposed aprons, aircraft hangars, workshops, offices, inspection rooms, etc. Aircraft maintenance technicians work on aircraft As the manager on the team responsible for Human Factors of Red Dragon Airways, I need to make sure requirements for servicing of Boeing 737 on a rolling basis.

Aircraft maintenance has many features in similar with other industries. The physical facilities in which aircraft maintenance technicians work, in any case, are unique. This is the only industry that uses quite the combination of facilities, including exposed aprons, aircraft hangars, workshops, offices, inspection rooms, etc. Aircraft maintenance technicians work on aircraft and hangars are often needed to shelter aircraft and workers from the elements for certain maintenance activities. Airplane hangars contains a range of human factors issues which are generally quite large and are built so that most of the floor area is unobstructed by structural support members. This design allows an aircraft to be moved and parked in the building. Their large areas and high ceilings make hangars harder to light properly. Large and open doors are controlling temperature and humidity problematic. The use of extensive and elevated, multi-level access stages are similar due to the sizes of aircraft and the changing statures of segment areas. Individual workspaces tend to be clustered around certain areas of the aircraft, undercarriage bays and engines.

Lighting:

 

Lighting is one of the most essential work parameters in aircraft maintenance is lighting. It is exceptionally hard to give sufficient lighting to all parts of maintenance work including inspection and repair. Poor surrounding light of work regions has been distinguished as a huge lack amid the investigation of certain accidents.  colour differences are important.

 

 

 

 

Climate and Temperature:

 

Aircraft maintenance engineers can work within quite a wide range of temperatures and climatic conditions, however execution is unfavorably influenced at extremes, and is best inside a genuinely limit scope of conditions.  Although this content alludes basically to maintenance carried out in hangars, it is realised that some work must take place outside hangars, often in extreme heat, cold, wind, snow, rain or humidity.

It is hard to entirely control temperatures in hangars due to the large expanses of space to heat or cool, and the way that the hanger entryways should be opened and shut from time to time, to let aircraft and large equipment in and out of the hangar. (Air-Tech Bildung, EASA 66 CAT A/B1 Module 09 human Factors, 2012)

 

Space in Hanger:

 

One of the most important work parameters in aircraft maintenance is space in hanger. There are five types of spaces in hangar facilities:

Q  Hangar Area

Q  Shops Area

Q  Stockrooms Area

Q  Office/Administration and Specialty Areas

Q  Building Utilities Area

We have to ensure that we have all the area and enough space in Red Dragon Airways hangar. (Whole building design guide, n.d.) (Air-Tech Bildung, EASA 66 CAT A/B1 Module 09 human Factors, 2012) (Air-Tech Bildung, EASA 66 CAT A/B1 Module 09 human Factors, 2012)

 

 

 

 

 

Keep the floors clear:

 

Aircraft maintenance means tools, hoses, rollaway boxes, electrical cords and more all over Red Dragon Airways hangar floor. This may be cause of a serious hazard where someone can easily get injured, knock over toolboxes and even accidentally damage the aircraft. Utilize overhead retractable reels if conceivable and keep some other lines taped down safely. So need to make sure that floors are kept clear around the hangar for easy, safe movement.

 

Fire safety:

 

We have to make sure that areas around electrical work must be kept clean and clear at all times, and all flammable substances and debris of the hanger should be kept clear. We have to make sure to regularly check our electrical equipment for any wear and tear that may compromise its safe use.

 

Foreign Object Damage awareness: 

 

FOD is the main source of aircraft damage and can bargain personal safety as well as cost you a huge amount of money to repair the aircraft. Attempt to keep ramp and operation areas clean, follow an FAA tool control program and give assigned capacity and compartments to utilized equipment, parts, and refuse.

 

Check hangar doors:

 

We have to check that hangar doors are able to open and close smoothly as well as securely hold the hangar closed in unpleasant climate, so maintaining our doors is vital. Rust, electric malfunctions and mechanical issues can plague hangar doors, causing them to stick and turning into a security danger for anybody around them, so contact an experienced maintenance and repair service as soon as we become aware of any issues. (monmouthjetcenter, n.d.)

 

Tools:

 

Tools are very important for maintenance that’s why we have to check all the necessary tools are available in the hanger to maintain the B737 aircraft. Without specific tools we cannot repair this aircraft.

 

Specialized Staff:

 

Aircraft maintenance engineer are responsible for the safety of aircraft. Everybody is not familiar with B737 aircraft. Somebody will be specialized on B777 or Airbus or some others aircraft. For this reason, we have to select that engineers who are specialized or experienced on B737. They will familiar with B737 aircraft and feel comfortable to do their work.

 

 

 

As the manager on the team responsible for Human Factors of Red Dragon Airways, I need to make sure requirements all these thing for servicing of Boeing 737 on a rolling basis. I have to monitor all the side. I have to check lighting, hangar doors and temperature of hanger working properly, spaces are enough, floors are clean all the time, no risk of fire and everyone is aware about foreign Object Damage. If we see that everything is perfect, then we can service B737 on a rolling basis and go ahead the aircraft and Red Dragon Airways.
