  • 3 Step process
  • Basic Elements of FOD Prevention
  • Preventive Practices
  • Best practices

Establishing an Effective FOD Program Steps
  • The first step in establishing an effective FOD program is to:

- Understand what FOD is and what effect it has on your bottomline in term of production, cost, schedule and customer satisfaction.

Establishing an Effective FOD Program
  • What is FOD
  • Foreign Object Debris (FOD): A substance, debris or article alien to a vehicle or system which would potentially cause damage.
  • Foreign Object Damage (FOD): Any damage attributed to a foreign object that can be expressed in physical or economic terms which may or may not degrade the product’s required safety and/or performance characteristics.

Establishing an Effective FOD Program Steps
  • Establishes a standard to prevent foreign object damage (FOD)to aerospace products being designed, developed, manufactured, assembled, operated, repaired, modified, refurbished and maintained.

Establishing an Effective FOD Program Steps
  • Identify FOD Critical Area: Any area where flight hardware is in place and exposure to foreign objects would potentially cause a system or product failure due to deterioration, malfunction or damage.

-- Most FOD can be attributed to poor housekeeping, facilities deterioration, improper maintenance or careless assemble and inadequate operational practices.

--An effective FOD prevention program identifies potential problems, corrects negative factors, provides awareness, effective employee training, and uses industry “lessons learned” for continued improvement.

basic elements
Basic Elements
  • Know your role and responsibilities
  • FOD Prevention Training
  • Early design consideration for FOD prevention, resistance to damage, foreign object entrapment, etc
  • Assembly sequencing and maintenance/manufacturing techniques that include proper care and the use of assemble/maintenance equipment and parts protective devices
  • Full leadership support, top down approach
  • Housekeeping
  • Control of tools and personal items
  • Control of hardware/consumables
  • Measuring techniques for analysis, trending and feedback
  • Incident investigation/reporting, “lessons learned”
  • Control of hazardous material
  • Awareness/Employees Feedback
preventive practices
Preventive Practices
  • Follow procedures.
  • Practice good housekeeping, “Clean –As-You-Go.”
  • Account for all tools, hardware and equipment at specific intervals.
  • Use x-ray, borescope, and other state-of-the-art equipment to inspect inaccessible areas.
  • Provide worker awareness to FOD causes.
  • Establish designated storage areas for ladders, hoses, tool boxes and other work aids.
  • Industry feedback through lessons learned and benchmarking. Share information from this conference.
  • Some agencies provide visual inspections upon job completion by designated “inspectors.”
  • Personnel should be required to have completed FOD training before being given access to designated areas where FOD may occur
fod best practices
FOD Best Practices
  • Established procedures to perform FOD roll over checks on vehicles at the FOD check points 
  • Created a traveling FOD board, routinely placed around the base to increase awareness
  • Ensure FOD posters are regularly shown on the local "Commander's TV channel"
  • In addition to daily FOD walks and spot inspections, schedule wing FOD walks to increase awareness across base
  • Increased the number of sweepers dedicated to the flightline area with low profile pickup heads
