3.03 Standardization

The use of standardization enhances safety and efficiency by logically assigning to different Flight Dispatch personnel the responsibility for the accomplishment of required tasks. The use of standard procedures reduces the burden of planning and promotes confidence and precision within the Flight Dispatch department.

Although not all eventualities can be foreseen, it has been well proven that the best operations occur when a high level of planning, communications, Flight Dispatch support, and standardization exist.

It is the goal of Flight Dispatch to achieve a precise level of standardization that discourages unsafe practices, carelessness, and the development of individualized procedures, but not so high that operational flexibility, good judgment, and professionalism are discouraged.
