Initial work is presented which was conducted within the ADAMS project, which is a European Commission -DGXII Brite Euram Project of Human Factors in Aircraft Dispatch and Maintenance Safety. The first part of the project concerned the rewiew of some of the major systems used in the aviation and/or maintenance field for accident/incident analysis and safety assessment. Lessons learnt from their failure and/or success are addressed. In particular, attention had been dedicated to some of the most sophisticated methodologies currently in use in the aviation maintenance field. The final objective being to disseminate relevant information within the maintenance environment and to establish a common background, among maintenance personnel, to encourage a uniform approach to human factors accident/incident investigation and safety assessment.
