Houston TX. August 1, 2013. Optimized Systems and Solutions,Inc. (OSyS), wholly owned subsidiary Superstructure Group is delighted to welcome China Airlines to the VISIUMAQD™family.

Since 2007, China Airlines have been actively implementing a Safety Management System (SMS), which incorporates safety practices into organisational management and utilises various safety management tools to enhance safety.

China Airlines were looking for SMS software to support this which was easy to access and which allowed them to connect with data from other airlines.

Being largely browser-based, VISIUMAQD™ has a small installation footprint and can be accessed and used by thousands of users simultaneously. This will allow China Airlines’ staff across the organisation to voluntarily report safety issues, risk factors, and unsafe practices (one of the key objectives of China Airlines’ SMS).

VISIUMAQD™also facilitates the risk assessment of incidents which have already occurred or which may occur in the future, allowing the organisation to put together risk management plans to reduce risk, decreasing the likelihood and severity of further incidents.
