Cost Effective Approach to Repairing OEM Shot Peened Parts for Aviation
for Managers of Aviation Repairs.


Aviation repair depends on the maintenance and replacement of parts according to the original manufacture’s and FAA specifications.  Shot peening provides the final part of repairing a component for installation.  However, shot peening services are expensive and can be inefficient for all but the largest operations.  The expense comes from finding a certified vendor, who can get the part completed correctly, on time, and according to specifications.  This can come at premium for time-sensitive repairs.  The greatest expense is not the repair of the part, but the decommissioning of the plane for an extended time of service and maintenance.    Unless the repair is a one-time repair, shipping a part for shot-peening services is inefficient.  Thus, managers of aviation repairs must analyze the costs of repairing shot peened parts through a variety of means.   This paper is a decision-makeing outline to help you analyze possible solutions maximizing price and downtime for the repair of OEM shot peened parts.
