Safety Management System

With the expected growth in air transportation, there is a need to make greater efforts and adopt new measures to continue improving aviation safety.
The use of Safety Management Systems (SMS) can contribute to this effort by helping airlines detect and correct safety problems before they result in aircraft accidents or incidents.

Leading regulatory aviation agencies declared guidelines for the establishment of SMS at airports:

ICAO Annex 14:
"A systematic approach to managing safety, including the necessary organizational structures, accountabilities, policy and procedures"

FAA AC 150/5200-37:
"Formal business like approach to managing safety risk. It includes systematic procedures, practices and policies for the management of safety"

Main goals of a safety management process:

1. Identify possible hazards with significant risk of an accident, injury or damage
2. Select appropriate corrective action to eliminate this risk or to reduce it to acceptable levels
3. Monitor the corrective action taken and test its efficiency

Establishing a formal reporting procedure within the airline management is an important element of each SMS that allows monitoring the level of safety performance achieved throughout the organization, being aware of every possible threat or risk and taking appropriate corrective action to minimize those risks.

This requires the availability of operational data and means for analyzing this data.

Our FavoWeb FRACAS software product answers with the 4 basic requirements from SMS:

Collection and management of operational data
FavoWeb FRACAS functionality and configuration allows for uniform and easy data collection. Forms are flexible and allow identifing fields or data to be collected and tracked. FavoWeb FRACAS is user friendly and wherever possible can operate on "point and-click" options, so that data collection is easy and therefore accurate. This also facilitates analysis and reporting as "free-text" input is minimized.

Analysis of the data
FavoWeb FRACAS offers numerous reliability and statistics trending reports combined with the flexible query mechanism.

Risk Assessment
Our RAM Commander's Safety Assessment Software Module implements tasks of qualitative and quantitative safety assessment required during system development:
  • Generation and verification of safety requirements;
  • Identification of all relevant failure conditions;
  • Consideration of all significant combinations of failures causing failure conditions;
  • Generation of output reports starting from the stage of Functional Hazard Analysis (FHA/PHA) and ending by the System Safety Assessment (SSA) verifying that the design meets safety requirements.

Corrective Action Effectiveness Assessment
FavoWeb FRACAS Corrective Actions module provides full support of all corrective action activities: CA definition, implementation, verification and follow-up, documentation of the entire process and measuring the efficiency of the proposed CA with the help of special metrics.
This mechanism offers 2 options:

  • Existing corrective Action Mechanism: from CA identification, FRB/MRB decision making and follow-up to CA implementation
  • Modified CA mechanism tailored to the requirements
