Utilizing SPAS, obtain a Repair Station Data Package for the desired maintenance providers. NOTE: Since the Repair Station Data Package will not be available until Phase 2, use the SPAS Repair Station Profile in the meantime.
Perform a comprehensive review of the data package to determine the status of previous risks and to identify new potential issues of concern. Identify trends and concerns, taking into consideration your knowledge of the repair station and system design, which includes operating environment, configuration and design of the air carrier and repair station. It should be noted that the PI may also contact the certificate holders to obtain any additional pertinent information.
Complete a new OPT taking into consideration Step 2. Refer to the OPT on the next page. Notice the lettering below corresponds with lettering in the OPT worksheet.
Create the same number of columns as the number of desired maintenance providers that you want to review.
List the names of desired maintenance providers.
List the designator of the each desired maintenance providers.
Using “Word Pictures” (shown on page 5 by arrow g), assess each of the questions (question 3 through 20). When assessing each question, consider the Repair Station Data Package and issues identified as a result of that review, the PI knowledge of the repair station, and air carrier and system design which includes operating environment, configuration and design of the air carrier and repair station. It should be noted that the number zero can be used when a question does not apply to the particular provider.
Add all the scores for questions 3 through 20 for each column to obtain the overall score for each maintenance provider listed.
Prioritize surveillance by giving the vendor with the highest overall score the highest priority.
NOTE: Part 135 certificate management offices can create Risk Management Worksheet (RMW) for issues of high concern. Follow the “Risk Management Process Work Instructions” for further detailed instruction on the completion of RMW. Also, Once the PI completes an RMW, the worksheet must be processed and cannot be ignored or dismissed without following the risk management process to completion.
Part 121 certificate management offices can utilize the current risk management process available through ATOS and SEP for issues of high concern.
