Meet All Part 5 and SMS Voluntary Program (SMSVP) Standards

Professionally Designed by Airline Managers

The Omni design team has decades of real-world 121 and 135 airline experience. And we know the SMSVP standard and data collection tools (DCTs) your principal inspectors will be using for design validation and performance evaluations. That’s why we designed, for example, a Confidential Reporting System that supports ASAP. Developed in accordance with Best Practices for Event Review Committees, FAA Advisory Circular AC 120-66B and Order 8900.1 Flight Standards Information Management System (FSIMS), Vol. 11, Chap. 2, Sec. 1, Aviation Safety Action Program, OmniSMS supports your ASAP while providing FAA principal inspectors with controlled access to your OmniSMS web application (as defined in your MOU).

From Proactive to Predictive

Predictive risk management relies on data from your flight data analysis (FOQA) program. To properly manage this data, OmniSMS provides Safety Issues in which you define the trend (aircraft type, location, phase of flight, type of exceedance, etc.) and then create a simple, easy-to-understand system description to perform the risk management process as required by Part 5. OmniSMS also allows you to manage single FDAP  / FOQA events using the barrier-based event risk classification method of risk assessment.

Get serious about predictive risk management in all departments with simple-to-create key performance and safety performance indicators that utilize precursor events – predictive indicators of unwanted consequences. Comprehensive classifications of threats, errors and undesired states are presented for you to edit and align with terms you currently use. For example, errors and quality escapes in maintenance are precursor events to in-flight technical failures. As these events are identified (through voluntary reports, Mx QC, LOSA-M observations, etc.) trends are revealed within functional areas and specific processes. Omni’s unique method of root cause analysis then uses structured data to assist managers in uncovering the environmental, situational, human, and organizational factors that are contributing to the trend. Truly effective corrective action plans can then be developed using a preferred order of controls.

When it’s time for a safety performance assessment (SMSVP process 5.73(a)(1)), filter risk controls by functional area / department and sort by highest residual risk. Then review and assess each control, correct controls if necessary, and update the current risk assessment. OmniSMS makes it easy. And we make it work.
