FDM/FOQA Integration

Aviation SMS and FDM/FOQA Integration

“Data based decision making is one of the most important facets of any management system” ICAO Safety Management Manual (Doc9859) 3rd Ed, Chapter 2

We recognize that within the aviation industry there are many different IT suppliers that provide systems to manage the day to day running of the organization.  While we offer compliance safety and quality software, there are also other IT suppliers that have synergies that allow a SMS Data Management solution to effectively manage the data integrated from these systems to manage both quality and safety.  Through integration, our approach is to create a holistic view of safety and in turn allow the organization to have a full understanding of areas of concerns which can be identified for improvement.

FDM integration provides a two-way interface between Flight Data Monitoring (FDM) solutions and the Safety Management System (SMS), which in turn streamlines the incident investigation process. Flight safety data can be centralized and at the same time improve visibility and accessibility throughout an organization.

FDM Integration encourages the reporting and subsequent investigation of events where operational parameters have been exceeded.  Through the incidents being reported and investigated, corrective or preventative action can be taken to mitigate risks and in turn improve safety levels

The FDM data is instantly accessible from the SMS, allowing quick access to events related to an investigation, which in turn saves time and promotes corrective actions to be implemented more quickly

FDM Integration allows full analysis of related incidents and in turn can provide a review of associated incidents and enable the identification of trends, leading to improved safety levels and increased efficiency performance.
Some  FDM solution suppliers are:

We are constantly working with other vendors to increase the scope of FDM Integration
