NOTE: This release of the enhance oversight system is Phase I, Phase II will be completed during the next 12 months, and Phase III sometimes after that. Building blocks of any system are important, automation is a critical component of an effective system and it’s application. The enhanced oversight system automation is in development in Phase I. AFS 300 is aware that the documentation of this new system during this first year is going to be laborious. Every effort is being made to bring the automation on line as soon as possible. AFS 300 believes the program in Phase I will provide value to the workforce with risk-based tools even without automation, and the significance it’s implementation at the beginning of the FY06 is increased safety. This monumental task took time to build and the same must be said for the system automation.
A. Organizational Units Impacted (Customers). The primary users of the FAA enhanced PTRS will be the Flight Standards ASIs and other authorized individuals and organizations within the FAA. The data and record retention recipient of this system will be AFS-600.
B. Improvements Safety Performance Analysis System (SPAS). The Air Operator Profile now includes an expanded table for contract maintenance in the Facilities tab. This table lists the repair stations in the profiled air operator’s operation specification (OpSpec) D091 of OPSS as well as those designators (typically repair stations) at which there have been applicable PTRS Surveillance or ATOS records within the date range. If you click on an individual contractor from the displayed list, SPAS displays profile information for the contractor. Here are the fields in the table:
(1) PTRS Surveillance- shows the number of surveillances for the operator where there is an entry in the field “Affiliated Designator.”
(2) Favorable- shows favorable surveillances.
(3) Unfavorable- shows unfavorable surveillances.
(4) ATOS Activities- shows the completed ATOS activities for the operator where there is an entry in the “Repair Station” field. These columns are shown only for ATOS Operators.
(5) Yes- shows the number of ATOS activities where at least one question was answered “Yes”, plus all DORs, which are considered to be inherently negative.
(6) No- shows the number of ATOS activities where all questions were answered “No.”
(7) RSAM Score- is the RSAM Overall Value for the most recent month for active repair stations. “Inactive” indicates an inactive repair station, and “Not CFR 145” indicates that the contractor is not a repair station.
(8) Last surveillance by inspectors- is the date of the last PTRS surveillance or ATOS activity for the profiled operator and the given contractor.
