Airline Maintenance Resource Management: Improving Communication R-192

This book is a primer about the leading-edge approach to maintenance operations known as Maintenance Resource Management (MRM) - a partnership of manager, doer and regulator. MRM programs at several leading carriers are reducing maintenance errors and improving the professional caliber of mechanics and managers.

Although communication and coordination issues have only recently been considered as important as technological advances in the aviation community, airlines have realized that a fix exists for maintenance communications problems. The "bottom-up" technique of MRM has successfully addressed these problems through more effective sharing of information among all employees.

In addition to describing the best practices now taking hold in the aviation industry, Taylor and Christensen look at what lies ahead and what the industry will need to do to match the high performance work systems in the best high-tech industries around the world.
