The turnover time for aircraft maintenance is crucial for the operational efficiency and profitability of airlines. Quality assurance (QA) and quality control (QC) procedures play a role in assuring the safe and reliable operation of aircraft. The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the impact of QC and QA on turnover time and to propose strategies for achieving a balance between quality and efficiency. A large-scale survey of airline and aviation maintenance organization maintenance staff was combined with a literature study to form a mixed-methods strategy. The findings indicate that quality control and quality assurance have a substantial impact on the turnaround time for aircraft maintenance. Standardization, automation, collaboration, training, and regulation were identified as obstacles and best practices for enhancing QC and QA. Recognizing the intricate relationship between QC, QA, and turnaround time, the paper concludes by recommending future research and practices to enhance aircraft maintenance quality and efficiency.
The research was led by uninterrupted and continuous support from Banasthali Vidyapith University (India) and different Airlines within the Asian region. Researchers are very thankful for the kind support each Subject Matter Expert (SME) provided
