ATA Codes Resolution Using Reliability Asset Based Management Techniques for Operations Optimization

An aircraft engine analysis is used to define preventive maintenance activities to avoid potential failures modes. In this example, life data analysis (LDA) and modeling using Reliability Block Diagrams (RBDs) are used to demonstrate the application. The methodology is incorporated with Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) to plan related maintenance tasks based on the analysis. The methodology allows organizations to move the needle from a qualitative type of evaluation to a quantitative assessment, thereby enabling the organization to improve time over time aircraft operation performance.

Key Words: Preventive Maintenance, Life Data Analysis, Reliability Block Diagrams
