I was group lead on Interior Design for the Bombardier CRJ 100/200 and then project lead for the CRJ interiors.
I know where your coming from, I had a liaison engineer on the shop floor as all changes had to be documented and approved. When I had a "NEW" engineer in the group I would asses his/her capabilities for a couple of weeks and also the train them on the way we engineered the interiors, if that person had problems visualizing the product I would send him out to my liaison engineer to help him with the concept of where and how the components fitted in the a/c. I even had one guy that came into the group and was very proud of the engineers ring that he got from university, I sent this engineer to the shop floor and a week later my  liaison engineer cam back to me and said we better get rid of this guy as he is a danger to himself, let alone the job. After another month I was able to pass him on to another group in the company.
And this is prevalent in our management too, every time I had a new boss I had to train him/her that we worked differently to the other groups.
The direct system specialist that we had signing off the engineering where always in direct contact with us and new what the product was, it was the next level up that we had problems with.
The problems that Boeing & FAA are having due to manpower is not only in the US its an industry in a major growth spurt right now and qualified personnel are hard to come by. As airlines are having trouble getting pilots then one only has to look at the rest of the iceberg...

Parliament exists to carry out the wishes of the People.  However, Parliament has completely lost sight of this fact.

Aux armes, Citoyens
Hi KC, many thanks for these two informative posts.  I have worked with System Assurance "experts" in the rail industry. Most of them have doctorates and are very good at churning out elaborate Fault Tree analyses.  However, most of them have little engineering expertise or any broad based System experience.  I suspect it is no different in the Aircraft industry.  These guys also seem to be completely oblivious of the need to work to an agreed timetable which probably led to the FAA to kick the problem down the road to Boeing.
Korat & Isaan Forums Support Desk / Upgrade to SMF2.1 RC1 not successful

The upgrading has been reversed, because there were too many error messages that needed individual attention. It probably still takes some time to get SMF2.1 work with all the features we're used to. Sorry! :-[

The board should soon work like before the upgrading attempt. The uploading of the backup files is still underway.

Please report, if you encounter any errors.

Seattle - While the preliminary results of the Flight 302 investigation reveal more data connecting two recent Boeing 737 MAX crashes, the certification process of the 737 MAX by the US Federal Aviation Agency is under scrutiny.

This could get a little nasty me thinks

Thanks Johnnie.

That's what I understood too, so I will only need to do the report on the 12th of June

Cheers KC

That the 90 days always start counting again, when you enter Thailand and are given a new TM.6-card is correct to my knowledge and in accordance with reports on both Korat-Info and here.

When I do my extension of stay the officer always puts a new receipt for a 90 days report in my passport. I've never been told to go to the 90 days room to let them check and confirm.

So on a slightly different question but related, as one leaves the country for a period of time (22 days in my recent case) the 90 days will start again from the date of arrival on my latest TM6 card???

I arrived back on the 14th of this month and my 90 day report was scheduled for the 12th of April but I think it will be the 12th of June 2019 now.

Are my assumptions correct?

Also the time I got my latest O-A visa in Korat (Dec last year) the Head lady said to do the first 90 day report come in and got to the shed out the back so that the peons there can make sure that you have entered all your information correctly

There are a couple of negative and also positive reports on Korat-Info. Several requirements/faults could be found out by those.

1. The online-report must be done 14 - 7 days before it is due.

2. It does not always work with every browser.

3. It depends upon the date of your T.M.6(Arrival/Departure)-card. Mine for example dates from 2005. Old ones were not put into the database, or at least Immigration's server does not find them, tells you to contact the next Immigration Office.
