Research in aviation maintenance human factors maps the evolution of MRM training programs into four distinct generations bridging attitude awareness programs, behavior changes, and process and structure changes. This paper analyzes a fourth generation MRM program from the perspective of the multi-step process, developed by the authors, as a guide for airlines to develop their own human factors programs. This analysis demonstrates that the corporate maintenance human factors program under review is a forerunner; however, a few additional, definitive steps during the planning, implementation, and follow-up would make this program more robust.
