Fatigue Risk Management System (FMRS)

Abstract: Development and Implementation of a FRMS

ICAO defines a Fatigue Risk Management System (FRMS) as "a data-driven means of continuously monitoring and maintaining fatigue related safety risks, based upon scientific principles and knowledge as well as operational experience that aims to ensure relevant personnel are performing at adequate levels of alertness". The Centre for Aviation embodies the scientific component in the development and implementation of an FRMS for airlines, MROs or ANSPs.

Project Description

The Centre for Aviation supports airlines, MROs or ANSPs in the development, implementation and effectiveness testing of their FRMS. The scientifically tested measurement design of the Centre for Aviation allows a comprehensive analysis of risk factors that are seen to lead to fatigue and thus impair safety. A long-term analysis allows the monitoring of these risk factors over time and thereby the identification of inefficient processes. Based on these studies a company-specific FRMS can be developed.
