Cost of Safety Management System
The lack of resources allocated to Safety Management System (SMS) is a major concern for the successful implementation and operation of SMS.
This issue is partially due to the non-availability of reliable information to support the decision of allocating resources (manpower, equipment and money) to SMS.
airsight developed in 2009 for EUROCONTROL a standard Cost Model aiming to quantify costs of SMS. It enables a detailed estimation of these costs, in order to assist Safety Departments and budget responsible persons to make informed decisions on the resources to allocate to SMS activities, as well as to better understand the composition of the cost of an SMS.
