Managing Resources - CRM, SRM, and MRM

Crew (or Cockpit) Resource Management – CRM – originated in 1979 from a NASA workshop which found that human factors were the primary cause of most aviation accidents. The focus of commercial pilot CRM training since that time has been on making the optimum use of all available resources – equipment, procedures, and people –to minimize human error and promote safe and efficient flight operations.

Crew Resource Management principles have also been applied to single-pilot and maintenance operations, resulting in SRM (Single-Pilot Resource Management) and MRM (Maintenance Resource Management). This month we look at a selection of ASRS reports that describe breakdowns in the cognitive skill areas so important to error-free cockpit and maintenance operations.
