I’m studying for my Engineering class and don’t understand how to answer this. Can you help me study?
In this discussion activity, address the following:
- We have examined the organizational structure of a typical maintenance organization and have reviewed the trend of maintenance outsourcing. In your post, compare and contrast the typical maintenance structure for an airline with in-house heavy maintenance versus an airline that outsources heavy maintenance checks. You need to consider who is responsible for the quality of maintenance results.
- How is quality assured during and after the maintenance checks have been completed?
- What effect, if any, does outsourcing have on fleet size?
- From a maintenance management perspective, identify one strength and one weakness for the company outsourcing heavy maintenance.
- Use a comparison of two different airlines that are in operation today to support your rationale presented in your post.
