The SMS planning phase is critical and will determine the success or failure of the project. Operators who pursue self-implementation using existing personnel will especially need experienced guidance during the planning phase. For that group, I provide a detailed implementation plan that will walk you through all six phases and assist you conform to the FAA SMS standard. Inexperienced operators will spend at least 1300 labor hours to establish the planning and training, which can take up to three years to complete and may end up not getting the results you had hoped for. That is because the SMS can be misunderstood quite easily and there frankly, are not very many people out there that have first hand experience implementing and managing it.
