Abstract : The purpose of this research is to technically evaluate, refine, and expand two existing aircraft safety management information systems (one military and one civilian). The systems are used in the data collection, organization, query, analysis, and reporting of maintenance errors that contribute to aviation mishaps, equipment damage, and personnel injury. Both programs implement the Human Factors Analysis and Classification System (HFACS) taxonomy model developed by the Naval Safety Center (NSC) to capture aircrew errors in Naval Aviation mishaps. The goal of this taxonomy is to identify areas for potential intervention by fully describing factors that are precursors to aircraft accidents.
