  • Always safety first – It’s all about data management and monitoring

    Safety is the key business foundation for every commercial aircraft operator, and data has become a central topic in the context of safety management. Nowadays, a lot of data is available to aviation organizations, and it is essential to manage it properly and efficiently.

    There are usually various individual data sources and collections in distinct areas, such as maintenance or flight and ground operations to keep track of safety risks - where analysts might detect rising or falling trends. The challenge is to carefully monitor all indicators, think of preventive measures for possibly rising issues, and minimize operational risks.

    With their advanced Safety Excellence solution, Lufthansa Consulting and zeroG offer a new way to combine all those data sources, including from multiple air operators (for a multi-operator group). By restructuring and scaling the data, the solution provides a risk score over time, allowing for the identification of drivers of increased risk.

    This new tool includes a series of dashboards and KPIs built on the industry best practices. In addition, it can be configured to address the operator’s current set of KPIs. Its dashboards enable the user to go to the next step towards the transparency of risks and compliance. Customized safety communication to all relevant stakeholders is ensured, from senior management to all involved departments. The key benefit of the in-house developed solution is to automate safety management processes and to offer a continuous overview of the safety performance at a glance. Inserting the operator’s data is an easy step to accomplish, which will provide a good safety overview of an organization.

    Further outstanding advantages:

    - It can be used as a stand-alone solution, but can also be integrated with/into existing safety tools.

    - Ability to be used in different industries, from the airline industry to the aviation operations of the oil and gas industry, given the customization characteristics of the tool.

    Safety is always your priority, so enhance your safety and quality management and contact us for more detailed information about our new automated Safety Excellence tool!
