Utilizing “Element Assessment Word Pictures” (shown on the next page by arrow i), assess each of the elements. When assessing each element, consider the Repair Station Data Package (Refer to step 1) and issues identified as a result of that review, the PI knowledge of the repair station and system design which includes operating environment, configuration and design of the repair station. It should be noted that the following three elements may not be applicable to all certificate holders: 3606/5606 work away from station, 3663/5363 Contract Maintenance, and 3618/5618 Air Carrier requirements. As such, a Not Applicable (N/A) is placed for these items in the element assessment column.
As a result of the assessment above the PI may elect to modify the surveillance plan by adding additional inspections. These inspections will be only be “Planned” items. Note higher number of “P” items should be planned for elements of concern.
Then number for “Total Surveillance” is obtained by adding the “Number of Inspections Required” (substep c above) and “Add Surveillance” (substep e above). This represents the total number of surveillance for each of the elements.
NOTE: A higher number of total inspections should be planned for elements of concern.
For issues of high concern, a Risk Management Worksheet (RMW) can be created. If an RMW is to be created, the PI will write “Yes” in this column and follow the “Risk Management Process Work Instructions” for further detailed instruction on the completion of RMW.
NOTE: Once the PI completes a RMW, the worksheet must be processed and cannot be ignored or dismissed without following the risk management process to completion.
The final step involves the PI assigning an overall assessment of the repair station by utilizing the “Overall Assessment Word Pictures” (shown on the next page by arrow j). When assessing the repair station, consider the Repair Station Data Package (Refer to step 1), the individual element assessments and system design which includes operating environment, configuration and design of the repair station.
NOTE: The results of the element and overall assessments will be valuable during the next iteration of RSAT and for prioritization among repair stations.
