Practical Application of Aircraft Reliability Mathematics for EASA Part CAMO

Part M

Brochure ButtonReliability programmes should be developed for aircraft maintenance programmes based upon maintenance steering group (MSG) logic or those that include condition monitored components or that do not contain overhaul time periods for all significant system components.

An Effective Aircraft Maintenance Reliability Programme is about identifying failure and failure-rate trends, but also an integral part of aircraft maintenance programme effectiveness, not least an indication of overall fleet health and most importantly exposure to safety risk as experienced by the entire business.

This highly interactive suite of training courses provides information and commentary, not only regarding the development of an effective reliability programme, but more importantly discusses reliability analysis and its’ application together with key requirements like engineering judgement, as well as delivering a practical demonstration of the statistical mathematics behind aircraft maintenance reliability analysis and reporting.


This course is designed for persons who need to have a deep understanding of the mathematics which are employed within an EASA compliant Reliability Program.
It is highly relevant to CAMO Management Engineering and Reliability Staff as well as CAMO Audit Staff as well as any person who needs an appreciation of the reliability process and how we employ mathematics to manage the DATA. For example, Aircraft or Component Maintenance Planners & Maintenance Programme Engineers.


a) A basic knowledge of statistical analysis, and how these principles are applied to reliability data.
b) Understand & be able to apply the mathematical calculations associated with aviation reliability.
c) To be able to interpret the data and findings drawn from calculated results.
d) Guidelines on how to use Standard & Alert Level Deviation principles to set Upper Control Limits.
