Quality and Safety Management in Aviation and Industry.

About

I feel myself confident in areas of Quality Management, Safety Management, ATM/CNS, Training/Education, Audits (all types) and Project Management in aviation and industry.

Speaking about my connection with ATM/CNS systems I would like to emphasize the fact that I have been included in the installations of the ILS and DME equipment in Frankfurt ab Main, Berlin Tegel, Skopje and Ohrid International Airports and I got the Letter of Recommendation for this my job from ALCATEL ANS (present name THALES Air Systems from Stuttgart). I was also included in installation of VOR/DME SINKO. As a Head of NAVAIDs Group in DGCA of Macedonia I was pretty much familiar with the maintenance and ground and flight calibrations. I was teaching Ab-Initio ATCOs for CNS equipment and RNAV/RPN flying procedures.

Regarding QMS please note that my Area of Specialization of my Master Degree studies was Metrology and Quality Management. In addition, I have finished two QMS courses. One was in EUROCONTROL IANS, Luxembourg (dedicated to the QMS in ATM/CNS) and second one in Skopje, Macedonia. During my job in CAA of Macedonia and DGCA of India I was doing QMS and SMS auditing. I have experience in implementation and maintenance of ISO 9001, ISO 140001, ISO/TS 16949, ISO 13485, ISO 17025 and AS 9100 (EN 9100). I have good knowledge of TQM, Lean Management, SPC, Kanban, Root Cause Analysis, Ishikawa, Kaizen, Pareto and Six Sigma.

My Safety knowledge is theoretically based and my Safety experience practically approved. Theoretical experience is gathered through the IANS and SENASA Safety Courses and my personal studying on internet. Practical experience is gathered through my work in CAA of Macedonia as Safety CNS Advisor/Auditor.

I was included in preparation of the Safety Manual for Technical Department of CAA of Macedonia and I was member of CAA Certification Team of CAA of Macedonia for certification of M-NAV. I have practical experience in Safety Audits and Safety Assessment Methodologies (FTA, ETA, FMEA, FMECA, Safety Cases, etc…).

Regarding the audits I have passed exam for SAF AUDIT course of EUROCONTROL Institute of Air Navigation Services in Luxembourg in the ATM/CNS area, ICAO USOAP ANS and ICAO USOAP Phase 1 exam for auditors. I am Lead Auditor in ISO 14001 and Internal Auditor in ISO/TS 16949. Also, I have practical experience in doing quality and safety oversight audits in Macedonia and India in ATM/CNS area.

Speaking about Project Management I would like to emphasize that I was employed in Planning and Development Department of CAA of Macedonia for almost 11 years and part of my job was Project Management. At all, I have conducted more than 30 projects during my professional career and 60% of them were international projects. In most of them, I was included in all phases, starting from writing the specification and requirements, preparing the tenders, evaluating and choosing the equipment, installations, FATs, SATs, installations and maintenance support. I am familiar with Microsoft Project, CPM, EU PM, GANNT, PERT and EVM.

My Educational/Training background is based on my experience as NAVAIDs instructor and Ab-Initio Trainer for Macedonian ATCo’s. In addition, I conducted two workshops for Modern Audit Techniques in CNS Area and conducted few on-job trainings on regulatory safety audits for CNS inspectors in DGCA of India. Also, I have worked two and half years as Senior Instructor EASA and Senior Lecturer in Military Technological College in Muscat Oman, where I was teaching 6 subjects. I am Partner Associate Lecturer of University of Portsmouth in area of aviation. I was working as Engineering Training Manager in GAL ANS in Abu Dhabi and as Faculty – Aviation Science in Higher College of Technology in Al Ain, UAE.

I am author of the books:

1. Quality-I is Safety-II: The integration of Two Management Systems;

2. Bowtie Methodology: A Guide for Practitioners;

3. The Art of Safety Auditing: A Tutorial for Regulators

4. Safety Accidents in Risky Industries: Black Swans, Gray Rhinos and Other Adverse Events

All of them published in USA by CRC Press.

I was member of the ICAO team who was included in Project in New Delhi dealing with “establishment of safety regulation and oversight capability of DGCA of India”. Actually, the safety regulation and safety oversight in DGCA of India in the CNS area is made by me (documents, manuals, check lists, guidance materials, etc…). In September 2017, I was engaged also in ICAO project in Cabo Verde, Africa helping ASA to prepare Master ATM/CNS Plan and to be certified as ANSP.
