Sofema Online (SOL) www.sofemaonline.com considers typical aircraft ground De-Icing /Anti-icing procedures

Introduction

The necessary inspections and communications can be made beforehand at the gate whereas, at remote/centralised de-icing, the necessary information must be informed to the de-icing crew in another way (e.g. coordinator communication).

The determining of the need for de/anti-icing can be made by other qualified persons, not necessary the de-icing crew.

 Introduction: Let’s start by considering the composition of an EASA/GCAA compliant Quality System.

       »  The first comment to make is that there are actually 2 distinct elements as shown below:

           o   Quality Control - In just a few words this measures the organisation's ability to comply with the rules and deliver the production process in an effective way involving process procedures, management, competence, training, and effective culture and behavior.
           o   Quality Assurance - Again, in a nutshell, the QA process is intended to “ensure’ the effectiveness of the QC process by means of independent assessment (means the assessor is not part of the delivery of the product)

Sofema Online (SOL) www.sofemaonline.com considers the relationship between marketing & economics.

Introduction

The price of a product is determined by the law of supply and demand. Consumers have a desire to acquire a product, and producers manufacture a supply to meet this demand.

The equilibrium market price of a good is the price at which quantity supplied equals quantity demanded. Graphically, the supply and demand curves intersect at the equilibrium price.

Essentially we can consider that Marketing is a bringing together of economics and psychology. We could even consider that marketing may be considered as a sub-element of economics.
