1.2 Identify factors that contribute to the process of project selection
A Senior Aircraft Technician (SAC - Tech) specialising in airframes and propulsion at RAF Odiham Role bay would be inclined to choose a project topic that they regularly carry out and are deemed competent. The bay maintains and manages all Chinook role equipment based at RAF Odiham. The Extended Range fuel Tank was chosen as the subject of this project because it is routinely serviced and bay maintained. The work carried out on the ERT encompasses everything from documentation, health and safety issues, manpower and resource management. Other assets maintained by the Role bay do not incorporate as many issues.

1.3 & 1.4 Undertake a critical review of key references and produce a research project specification
Monitoring methods:
As briefly described in 1.1, the ERT MoD 731 or LITS are used to monitor the serviceability and bay maintenance date of the ERT. The 731 is the hard copy record of the ERT which details the bay maintenance date, the life expiry date, the serial number and partial service history. A MoD 731 will always accompany the ERT whether it is issued/returned from/to the bay, where as LITS is the soft copy which is available to all users with the LITS terminal.

Operating Methods:
Operating methods are carried out in accordance with Air publications (AP106B-0102-6 Annex 4) and documented in MOD
