Event Brief

Maintenance Steering Group – 3 (MSG-3) has been a key to ensure up-to-date engineering logic in aviation maintenance today. Compared to its predecessors, it’s top-down approach provides more benefits to derive the most appropriate scheduled maintenance task and interval for an aircraft’s major components and structure. MSG-3-based maintenance effectively delivers significant improvement of aircraft availability & operational safety nets while optimising costs of ownership.

With the latest content and information, this course aims to provide its participants a sound foundation on the MSG-3 process and developing MSG-3-based Maintenance Programmes.

This will be achieved by initially understanding MSG-3’s historical development and comparative advantages over MSG-2 and MSG-1. This will be followed by a discussion on reliability and failure characteristics theory to understand the MSG-3 logic, and then proceed to addressing the components of the MSG-3 methodology. There will also be focused sections on MSG-3 specifics (SSI, Zonal Maintenance, L/HIRF, etc.). Case studies, class exercises and workshops are also incorporated to effectively demonstrate the lessons and practical applications of the specific-subject matter.

Course Objective

This course will comprise of 3-day presentation, discussion and intensive training on the background, requirement, scope and applications of MSG-3 Analysis Methodology. It aims to help participants in: 

  • UNDERSTANDING the technical and management issues pertinent to MSG-3
  • ENABLING competence to understand, support and conduct MSG-3 analysis
  • DETERMINING sound information on the inherent safety and  reliability levels of equipment
  • APPLYING MSG-3 Analysis Recommendations to achieve optimal balance on maintenance/failures costs and availability & safety improvements

    Principal Consultant
    Aspîre Consulting Limited

    Gavin has proven track record in the field of MSG-3 and Reliability Centred Maintenance (RCM) which has been gained from within his RAF and Civilian aviation career. This is in addition to his related technical authoring experience and expertise, also gained within the air environment.

    This RCM / MSG-3 expertise is founded on his previous experience in aircraft maintenance as an engineering manager and technician in the UK Royal Air Force [RAF]; Gavin has also been an Integrated Logistic Support [ILS] and Logistic Support Analysis [LSA] Manager within the air and ground environments; he has both civil and military experience in these fields. 

    His experience includes the application of Failure Modes & Effects Analysis [FMEA], Failure Modes, Effects & Criticality Analysis [FMECA] and Maintenance Task Analysis [MTA]. He is conversant with the following standards; ASD S1000D, S2000M, MSG-3, JAP100C-22, JAP100C-20, Def Stan 00-60, Def Stan 00-45, Mil Std 1843, 1629A and 1388-2B, but it was his involvement within other projects and duties within his 23 Years Royal Air Force Service e.g. Quality, Logistics Information Technology Systems, which exposed him to the methodology and mechanisms by which schedules are derived.  As a direct result of this involvement he was posted to RAF Wyton in 2001 as an RCM/ MSG -3 analyst and team leader.

    Who Should Attend

    The course is designed to meet the needs of aviation personnel who require a comprehensive understanding of MSG-3.

    The course is designed principally to prepare the delegate for a role as a MSG-3 Analyst. It is aimed at aviation engineering organisations. The course will also benefit anyone working within an MSG-3 environment who needs a working understanding of the MSG-3 process in order to function effectively and efficiently.

    It would also serve as useful to other Supportability Engineering Managers and Practitioners who need a broad understanding of the key processes carried out as part of an integrated programme. Typically this may include Reliability, Safety, Technical Data, Supply Support and Human Factors Managers and personnel.

    Key Organisations:

  • Airline Operators / Technical Services Groups
  • Aviation MRO
  • Aviation Authorities
  • Air Forces
  • Aviation Defence Organisations
  • All industries & contractors interested in MSG-3 Analysis Methodology
