Monitoring Key Safety Performance With KPI Trend Monitor

 

Benefits of KPI Trend Monitoring

This module allows you to compare your KPI classifications against industry averages, which is extremely important as it allows you to have a benchmark for performance. Remember that KPIs are created directly in response to your safety objectives, which means that KPI performance is the same as the core performance of your SMS program.

In this module, you can:

  • View historical number of classification for each KPI;
  • View the normalized rate for each KPI; and
  • Generate KPI reports.

This module’s functionality are a critical part of maintaining FAA Part 5.71 Safety Performance Monitoring and Measurement compliance.

Features of Trend Monitoring Management Process

The Part 5 Automation Tool’s Performance Monitor allows executives to see reported activity in real time! One can quickly see how open is the reporting culture by looking at this Performance Monitoring module. In addition, looking at the average number of days an issue is unresolved is a good metric for organizational responsiveness.

The Part 5 Automation Tool™ provides following default key performance indicators (KPIs):

  • Total Number Issues Reported
  • Average Days to Resolve Issue
  • Number Months Reporting
  • Average Number Issues Reported Each Month
  • Total Cost of all Issues
  • Average Cost per Issue
  • Minimum Issue Cost
  • Maximum Issue Cost

You can then set all additional KPIs. Every KPI you set will appear in this module. You will see the number of times each KPI has been classified each year.

Additionally, you can set a normalization rate for your operations and see normalized data, enabling you to compare your data against other organizations in your industry.
