How can an air carrier take advantage of the MSG-3 based aircraft maintenance programs? In the aircraft maintenance world, MSG-3 is the root of all inspection schedules in a process starting before an aircraft enters service. Here is a look at this fascinating process of how manufacturers and operators work to achieve the end result. This whitepaper examines the development of aircraft maintenance program logic and offers suggestions for realizing the full safety of those developments. What are the three broad processes introduced by MSG-1 to classify the scheduled aircraft maintenance requirements? What are the four basic objectives of an efficient airline maintenance program generated by MSG-3? What are the MSG-3 requirements and the mandatory maintenance requirements generated by compliance to FAR 25.571 that a new aircraft usually have? Download this informative whitepaper to make the first step in making that necessary culture change and achieving the economic benefits of MSG-3 maintenance program in an air carrier’s maintenance organization.
Accelerate Development: Pre-Integrated Systems Meet Expanding Defense System Needs
White Paper: Kontron
Choosing the right profile maximizes the value of pre-integrated systems, and provides a smart, streamlined design path for OEMs and developers. Pre-integrated systems based on COM Express Computer- on-Modules (COMe COMs) deliver a critical small form factor design advantage for a host of military and aerospace applications. By offering a slate of upgradable, rugged options in a ready-to-use small form factor platform, systems capitalize on carrier board attributes blended with the flexibility of mezzanine options, enabling a powerful competitive advantage in mil/aero system design. This informative whitepaper brings you the solutions to the always-present question of design vs. build and how to quickly and economically meet Proof of Concept (PoC) requirements. It also focuses on: Evaluating Build vs. Buy Dilemma Establishing Profiles Fuel Maximum Design Efficiency Storage Profile, Situational Awareness Profile and Server Profile Adding Flexible Value with XMC and mPCIe Mezzanines Smart Profile Choices Keeping Pace with Mil/Aero Initiatives Download this whitepaper to learn how the pre-integrated systems meet expanding military program application needs.

A Practical Guide to Selecting the Right Control Chart
White Paper: Cornerstone OnDemand
Control charts analysis is the key tool for quality control and figures prominently in lean manufacturing and Six Sigma efforts. Choosing the wrong type of control chart may result in “false positives” since the chart may not be sensitive enough for your process. So what are the major control charts types available? How can you select the Right Control Chart? Selecting the most appropriate type of control chart to use in your situations can be overwhelming. Implementing a simple decision tree to select the right control chart can improve manufacturing processes and product quality. This guide uses automated as well as manual sampling to present control charts in real time and alerts operators and quality engineers to take samples and initiate process improvements. This whitepaper analyzes and compares the benefits and weaknesses of each type of control charts, thereby helping you in determining the most appropriate type of control charts for your organization. Learn about: The processes implemented in the analysis of control charts. The factors affecting the efficiency of control charts. Download this whitepaper now to learn more about the applications of control charts and the methods to be followed when it comes to choosing a control chart.

New business practices and modern Continuing Analysis and Surveillance System (CASS)-based reliability programs and policies are needed to provide the means for operators to make significant and justified adjustments to scheduled maintenance task or check intervals. The airlines need to apply best business practices and a modern CASS-based reliability program to dynamically adjust their scheduled maintenance requirements in a professional, safe and realistic manner. Read this whitepaper on “Arbitrary Escalation Caps (AES),” that addresses the key questions including: What are the characteristics of an effective CASS based reliability program? What are the reasons that they may highlight a problem with air carrier CASS based reliability programs? What are the program elements and expected benefits associated with the CASS based reliability program?
