“Using Maintenance Records and Guided Diagnostics to Improve Training”

CaseBank Technologies Inc., the leading provider of software for the identification of equipment performance and reliability defects, has announced that it will present a session at the World Aviation Training Conference and Tradeshow 2015, the world’s largest meeting of aviation training professional. The event will be held from April 21-23, 2015 at the Rosen Shingle Creek Resort in Orlando, FL. On April 21, Phil D’Eon, President and Chief Technology Officer at CaseBank, will be presenting on “Using Maintenance Records and Guided Diagnostics to Improve Training.”

“Fiscal pressures and a growing need to create more experienced maintenance personnel are key drivers to find new ways to adapt maintenance training for today’s airlines,” said D’Eon. “With ever-increasing equipment complexity, conventional training methods and single training courses cannot teach a technician everything that he/she needs to know. As a result, training gaps are inevitable, and maintenance organizations increasingly rely upon on-the-job training.  But technologies are now available to help identify key topics for classroom training, and for delivering refresher training on the job, when the need arises.”

CaseBank’s SpotLight® solution provides diagnostic guidance based on a knowledgebase of troubleshooting events and validated repair experience from one’s own organization and other operators around the world. The knowledgebase implicitly imparts training by offering a comprehensive view of maintenance and pilot reports that manufacturers and operators have experienced, and it can deliver refresher training directly related to the subject of the troubleshooting. “It’s an intelligent troubleshooting solution that draws upon the collective experience of the global aircraft maintenance team, so it’s the ideal channel for just-in-time delivery of training materials relevant to the current need,” said D’Eon.

ChronicX® for Aviation uses an innovative approach to analyze aircraft maintenance records and uncover hidden service trends such as 1) recurring problems on individual aircraft; 2) repeat defects/fixes that have occurred across multiple aircraft and/or repair stations; and 3) emerging failure modes that have not yet reached critical status. The technology evaluates aircraft maintenance histories to accurately identify valid repeats and reduce false alerts, helping maintenance teams recognize the most costly and critical problems.
