Research on Zonal Inspection Intervals of Civil Aircraft Based on Improved FAHP

Jia Baohui, Zhang Yuxin, Lu Xiang



One of the most important things in formulating aircraft maintenance program is to determine the zonal inspection intervals. In accordance with the current situation that there has no perfect rating systems of zonal inspection under MSG-3 (Maintenance Steering Group-3) analysis system, a method to calculate the integrate level of zonal rating is to analyze the impact of aircraft zonal rating factors, establish a hierarchical index evaluation system and then utilize the improved fuzzy analytic hierarchy process (FAHP) to determine the indexes’ weight. Moreover, the zonal inspection intervals can be established according to the correspondence between rates and intervals. Finally, take a typical zone of an aircraft as an example to verify the method.
