Abstract : This study investigates the applications of aviation maintenance data used with the data analysis tools of Total Quality Management (TQM). This is a case study using the aviation maintenance data produced at Helicopter And- Submarine (Light) Three Seven (HSL-37), NAS Barbers Pt, HI, from September 1990 to August 1991. In 1991, the U. S. Navy began the process of implementing Total Quality Management developed by Dr. W. Edwards Deming. This study explores the sufficiency of the data produced by the squadron as measured by the results of TQM analysis tools. This study shows how aviation maintenance data from this squadron would be analyzed with TQM analysis tools used in the Shewart Cycle in TQM. It was designed to identify limits and shortfalls in data, and categories of data required that would be needed by the squadron in conducting TQM. It also provides a guide for TQM data analysis for naval squadrons conducting TQM.
