86 % of DSD is related to B-747 ,while 14 % is related to other fleet type.
53% OF DSD took place in Jeddah and Riyadh stations
Determination of the existence relationship between the number of DSD and some other variables is measured by the value of the correlation coefficient “R”. The Correlation Analysis and its “R” value is shown in the table below:
Based on the above table , it is clear that the total number of DSD is linearly correlated to JED & RUH operation and B-747 fleet.
Note: Data Source :ARP-TSV
One of the major causes of DSD incident is loading and off loading operation
on the A/C. B-747 A/C and B-777 A/C are very identical in terms of :
1- Loading / off-loading operation
2- Shipment types and size (ULD’S & Pallets)
3- Equipment used for loading/off-loading operation.
* Components Removals for years 2003,2004,2005,2006,2007 data Source :ARP-TSV
Question :- Does the operation volume of A/C B-747 and A/C B777 is significantly Different ?
Test of Hypothesis is used to compare the mean of B-747 NO. revenue dept and the mean of B-777 NO. revenue dept.

Answer : Yes
Because the P-value = 0.000 , < 0.05 , we conclude that there is a statistical
difference between the two means and the mean of B-777 NO. revenue dep.
33 % OF DSD was located on the left side of A/C CGO doors, while 14 % of DSD was
On right side of A/C CGO doors.
The analysis revealed that:
1- Hi-loader’s protection guiders
setting is considered as
the major cause of DSD.
2- Damaged and heavy ULDs
are another cause of DSD in
the absence of proper setting
of Hi-loader’s protection guiders and the operator stand alone on the right side of A/C cargo door.
3- Cargo door of B-777 has less DSD due to :
A- Bigger door size in width.
B- It has protection guide fitted in A/C’s cargo door (help in offloading).
1. Hi-loader protection guiders
must be adjusted within A/C
Cargo door width.
2. Damaged ULD’S should not to be used.
3. ULD’S weight must be controlled to avoid loading of heavy ULD’S.
4. Assistance must be requested
by the operator in case of facing
5. Damaged ULD’s should
not be loaded side door.
6. Any failure of PDU should
be reported by the operator.
IMPROVE & CONTROL Operation
Process Fixes & Control Operation
Causes of Variation
-Monitor the processes of loading and offloading.
- Perform the random inspection.
- Monitor DSD trend.
Project Closure Operation
Implementation of project recommendations will yield the following :-
