With trans-atlantic travel and na - asian travel at its all time high, airlines around the world are faced with increased demand for their aircraft. Will they be able to meet the demand keeping 100 % certain that the aircraft meet the quality requirements. Who will win the classic argument of production numbers Vs quality numbers? If production numbers win, then airline safety is not 100 % assured. Statistics proves that flying is more safer than driving.

My final year engineering project was on aircraft maintenance of Airbus A 320 aircraft. Through parallel processing, correct level of inventory for spares, rotables, and consumables, and training curriculum we projected savings in maintenance time requirements (avionics, airframes, and engines) for the aircraft freeing up the aircraft for more hours in the air. Interest has been on and off on aircraft since then.
