Avionics System Maintenance Procedures are discussed in this thesis in the context of a BPhil project involving formal training in research methods and includes information obtained by investigating issues pertinent to aircraft avionics systems maintenance. Personnel matters, problem specification and identification, maintenance procedures, health and safety issues, and quality control issues are discussed in terms of their influence in effectively carrying out required maintenance. The work described in the thesis demonstrates that several research methods are applicable to, and effective for, gathering information on avionics systems maintenance. Evidence is presented to support the view that research of maintenance procedures can produce considerable benefits in terms of improved overall maintenance performance. A critical comparison of maintenance procedures used by British Aerospace and the Indonesian Air Force is included, and conclusions are drawn which highlight a number of significant possibilities for developing improved procedures. Specific recommendations for improving maintenance productivity are given, and the benefits of addressing issues of Continuing Professional Development, Health and Safety matters, problem identification, use of computer databases, particularly for information governed by Standards, are discussed.
