Foreign objects inside an aircraft are any loose items that can cause damage or injury. Common foreign objects that are found in aircraft are debris, forgotten tools, or loose nuts and bolts. These items can interfere with aircraft operating systems or damage landing gear. Visually checking to make sure that no maintenance and repair tooling was left behind can be very time-consuming, and may not detect smaller equipment. Aviation tooling management software can help by ensuring that all equipment, no matter the size, is accounted for at the end of a job or shift.
How it Works
The software works by tracking the location of each piece of tooling or equipment that is used on a job. At the beginning of work, tooling is “checked-out” to a specific work order or aircraft tail number. This can be done by using bar codes or RFID tags. When the work is completed, for the day or the end of the work order, the tooling is “checked-in” or received by the software.
If any items are missing, an alert is created. The alert specifies the exact tooling that is missing, the work order associated, and the technician that was using the tool. The alert system enables technicians to collect all tooling before leaving the site or marking a work order as complete. The alert ceases once any missing items are returned.
MRO’s and FBO’s that use aviation tooling management software feel more confident about FOD prevention. The automated process takes the guesswork out of prevention. Tooling is never left behind due to the alert system. If you have any questions or are interested in aviation tooling management software, contact e2b calibration.

Weighing an aircraft is an important task that is performed regularly throughout aviation maintenance organizations worldwide. The weight and center of gravity of an aircraft have a significant impact on the stability and performance during the operation of an aircraft. If the aircraft is too heavy, it may have trouble getting off the ground. If […]
Temperature is one of the most important factors that affects the performance and life of turbine engines. For the engine to be most efficient, the exhaust temperatures need to be as high as possible, while maintaining an operating temperature that does not exceed the engine’s material limits and cause damage to the engine. Too low […]
