The costs derived from the inefficiency of quality and compliance monitoring management within air operators represent one of the biggest problems in the aviation sector, as its consequences are translated into a waste of productivity, an issue that costs time and money, that distances the organisation from their established goals and harms it in terms of competitiveness and compliance with authority.
In fact, the inefficiency is an aspect of the business that the aviation sector should also avoid, especially regarding the following areas:
- Use of resources: This kind of inefficiencies generates a sort of costs that are way higher than what many companies calculate and that is why they should be avoided encouraging sustainability policies, labor flexibility, and responsible consumption.
- Systems and processes: Starting with strong leadership, the lack of efficiency should be solved in this area. The improvement of the organisation, the adequacy of the resources to the specific needs, and the optimization of the workload distribution are three ways to stop the problem.
- Use of time: Excessive latencies, downtime, interruptions, delays … Yes, time is a limited resource and it is necessary to avoid bad habits such as the lack of prioritization. Measures should be also taken to help optimize its use, avoiding the extra costs that delays in the delivery of projects or overtime generate in the organisation.
- Human potential: When you don’t know how you work you can not reach maximum levels of performance and business efficiency. Having access to data on the hours that are dedicated to productive and non-productive activities, the percentage of the working day dedicated to a certain application or the time spent in meetings is the first step to define improvement objectives to deal with inefficiency.
In the particular case of the aviation sector and legal compliance, the costs derived from the inefficiency of quality and compliance monitoring management within air operators can be simplified to two unfavorable aspects, that are:
- The considerable increase in non-compliance because there are a series of human errors in quality and compliance monitoring management that can also harm the organisation in keeping up with the requirements of the authority.
- The high number of staff hours dedicated to quality and compliance monitoring management, which implies a high cost for the organisations.
But the costs derived from the inefficiency of quality and compliance monitoring management within air operators is a thing of the past because now it is possible to obtain immediate results with the use of a quality and compliance monitoring control software, with which it is possible to establish a continuous improvement that guarantees the efficiency of the operations in the aviation sector.
For example, an average aviation organisation that has a maximum of 20 planes, can reduce up to 3.000 highly qualified staff working hours per year.
The SICOMO solution, that combines software with related services, allows this kind of automatization, which translates into a decrease of the workload related with the inefficiency of quality and compliance monitoring management, as well as the management of audit plans and its performance, the management of noncompliance, and the report’s generation among others.
