Airline/Maintenance/Regulation panel discussions

held at IVHM and SHM committee meeting

SAE International’s HM-1 Integrated Vehicle Health Management and G-11SHM

Structural Health Monitoring and Management committees held a special panel session

featuring representatives from airlines, maintenance organizations and regulatory agencies at

their March meeting at the Lufthansa Aviation Center, at Frankfurt Airport. The panels featured

representatives from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), UK Military Aviation Authority

(MAA), TAP Portugal, Lufthansa Technik, and All Nippon Airways.

SAE has dedicated technical committees and panels that are developing recommended practices

and standards for propulsion systems, powerplants, structures, landing gears and other systems, as

well as the integrated vehicle itself.

Simon Waite and Alastair Healy of EASA, and RAF Squadron Leader Sean Perkins spoke at the

“Regulators Panel” portion of the meeting. Waite discussed the regulatory approach to structural

integrity in the light of “ARP646: Guidelines on Structural Health Monitoring for Aerospace

Applications,” a forthcoming recommended practice developed by SAE’s G-11SHM committee.

He used examples of standards and regulations for detection and monitoring on rotorcraft and

small fixed wing aircraft, and urged early dialog between SHM (Structural Health Monitoring)

stakeholders and regulators.

Healey discussed the legacy of vehicle health management for rotorcraft, and noted that the

industry will drive innovation in IVHM which the regulator will address as required. He also noted

the potential for IVHM to support safety, and described how the organization must maintain

an acceptable, pre-defined level of airworthiness and safety through writing certification and

operating requirements, and ensuring compliance with regulators regarding the introduction of new

maintenance practices. EASA is participating in the SAE HM-1 IVHM committee.

Perkins discussed the Military Aircraft Authority (MAA), which has been established to address

airworthiness of military aircraft. Among the MAA’s goals, he said, are producing a mixture

of mandated and good guidance materials, establishing maintenance credits, and providing a

regulatory framework that enables evolution. Examples were provided of instances in which fixed

and rotary wing military aircraft currently utilize health monitoring systems

Participants in the “End Users Panel” were Nuno Goncalves Soares of TAP Maintenance and

Engineering, Olaf Ronsdorf of Lufthansa Technik, and Katsuo Matsuura of ANA. Soares

discussed how the airline has installed an aircraft health monitoring system with the goals of quickly

trouble-shooting in-flight, performing maintenance more quickly, and reducing time on the ground.

He noted that IVHM was important but that NFF (No Fault Found) was a key challenge.

Ronsdorf, the Lufthansa Technik representative on the SAE Aerospace Council,

described how Lufthansa performs Engine Condition Monitoring on 1,520 engines, using their own

or OEM developed algorithms. He discussed the desire for reliable condition based maintenance

(CBM) for aircraft systems which can affect operations to reduce unscheduled groundings and

maintenance and increase aircraft availability. He also noted the need for partnership between the

OEM and the operator in identifying and using data and trending.

Matsuura, ANA Chief Engineer and a member of the SAE Aerospace Council, described

the evolution of aircraft monitoring capabilities and the value to the airline, and noted the increase in

the number of aircraft systems able to provide diagnostic and prognostic information. He discussed

the aspiration for full aircraft health management and the need for increased availability. ARP6461

should pave the way to use SHM as an alternative means of compliance and help enable CBM.

In addition, SHM outputs may be a key factor in the evolution of future, more efficient airframe


The insights from all panelists were appreciated by the audience and will help drive forward SAE

standardization activities in all aspects of aircraft systems and vehicle health management.

IVHM: A new technological paradigm

Adapted from an article which previously appeared in Aerospace Engineering magazine

The aims of Integrated Vehicle Health Management (IVHM) include improved safety through the use

of diagnostics and prognostics to fix faults before they are an issue, as well as improved availability of

fleets through better maintenance scheduling.

In the past, OEMs and suppliers had very little say on how an airplane was used or maintained. That

responsibility fell mostly on the shoulders of the operators. Parts were shipped according to the

requirements and timing of the aircraft owner.

Today, operators—i.e., airlines—are moving away from such tasks, concentrating their attention on

profitably running the business of flying. OEMs and suppliers, on the other hand, are taking over the

business of guaranteeing that the planes are ready and able to fly as expected. That’s the new contract:

availability, reliability, deep asset knowledge, and readiness. The cost of ownership is thus kept on budget,

maximizing the potential for bigger margins. The impetus for the IVHM value proposition on the OEM

side is a commercial one – the desire to increase or maintain revenue by moving into maintenance, or to

compete in a market that is being eroded by low-cost component suppliers.

In 2011, the SAE IVHM Steering Group defined IVHM as the “unified capability of a system of systems to

assess the current or future state of the member system health, and integrate that picture of system health

within a framework of available resources and operational demand.” In November 2010, the SAE committee

HM-1, Integrated Vehicle Health Management was established to develop standards related to IVHM.

The committee is part of SAE’s IVHM initiative, which also includes the IVHM Steering Group.

The technology of IVHM enables the collection of information on an object’s condition, performance,

and location. It also facilitates the transmission of this information, often from hostile environments

(e.g., inside a jet engine). In the end though, it is how maintainers use this information that will really

make a difference. Although there are quite sophisticated tools both for diagnostics and prognostics,

what will fundamentally matter are the business drivers that the data will be used to support.

IVHM offers organizations options for monitoring of the health of an asset. Decisions can then be

made based on the information that is collected. Primarily, such decisions will enable the maintainer

to better schedule maintenance based on actual performance and condition of an asset (the

airplane itself, or any of its parts) rather than when a component fails or when regular maintenance

is performed. Any event that leads to a plane malfunction in between these two parameters can be

flagged and addressed by consistently applying IVHM.

For passengers flying from New York to London (or anywhere else for that matter), this will be basically

an invisible, behind-the-scenes situation. The good news is that airplanes will depart and arrive when

they are supposed to with no untoward interruptions.

New recommended practice addresses quality and

process improvement

SAE J2886, Design Review Based on Failure Modes (DRBFM),” developed by the SAE

Automotive Quality and Process Improvement Committee, was published in March.

This Recommended Practice, the first standard addressing DRBFM, explains the process and its

recommended steps. It includes examples of how to conduct the process and discusses how DRBFM

can fit with activities such as product and process development, validation, production, and change

management. DRBFM has been adopted by both automotive and non-automotive companies.

“There is a growing demand for DRBFM information due to the interest of companies from multiple

industries and the expectation of the global supply base to utilize the process as well,” said Bill

Haughey, Chairman of the J2886 DRBFM Task Force. “Companies tend to use slight

variations of the process, which can cause complexity for suppliers that support multiple companies.

Development of a recommended practice has been supported by users of DRBFM from both

manufactures and suppliers.”

J2886 describes the basic principles and processes of DRBFM including planning, preparation,

change point FMEA, design reviews, decisions based on actions completed, and feedback loops to

other processes such as design and validation.

J2886 is intended for use by organizations whose product development processes currently use

Failure Mode & Effects Analysis (FMEA) or DRBFM as a tool for assessing the potential risk

and reliability of system elements (product or process) or as part of their product improvement

processes. DRBFM is not intended to replace FMEA; however, companies interested in adopting

DRBFM will benefit from the focus on specific change points and supporting engineering decisions

based on detailed discussions.

From the perspective of the operator, the result is having more planes in the air with a lot fewer

unknowns on the ground (i.e., margin improvement and higher levels of customer satisfaction). It

will not be acceptable for a plane to be delayed at the gate for a “cause unknown.” The situation

will demand the unequivocal location of a faulty LRU (line replaceable unit), so it can be dealt with,

getting the aircraft back on the runway. It will also require a movement from accurate diagnosis of a

fault, with fault forwarding so that the aircraft can be repaired on the ground, to prognostics where

the necessary repair is known for some time in advance, and maintenance booked when convenient.

SAE is the world’s largest aerospace standards development organization. Its consensus based program is the forum through

which the global industry collaborates on and sets expectations for vehicle reliability, quality, safety, efficiency, and compliance.

Thousands of engineers from companies throughout the supply chain and around the

world serve on some 250 SAE technical committees developing, revising, and

keeping current more than 8,400 technical standards—standards that address

the full spectrum of aerospace business from design, integrate, build and

exterior noise associated with aircraft and their environments. The group coordinates aircraft noise

measurement efforts with a variety of organizations internationally, such as ICAO, AIRMOD, CAA,

FAA, U.S. DOT, NASA, MIT, and U.S. and European rotorcraft forums.

The SAE E-33 In-Flight Propulsion Measurement Committee addresses all facets of

in-flight thrust measurement and its uncertainty through the review of current industry methods

and procedures, and determines whether the need for additional measures exists. The group

is dedicated to creating, preparing, and maintaining all relevant specifications, standards and

requirements for in-flight propulsion measurement.

Gain a competitive advantage. Impact your bottom line.

Invest in standards.

Standards. The workhorse documents that commonize practices, processes, and products throughout

the aerospace industry are also paramount to the advancement of technology. Standards documents

are more than the practices of today. They account for history and anticipate the future of technology,

regulation, and business. The direct benefits of standards are simple in concept but extraordinary in

their global impact toward ever-safer, cleaner, more efficient worldwide transportation.

Technical standards enable and enhance:

• consistent and clear expectations for product performance and reliability

• regulatory compliance

• consistent product quality

• compatibility and interoperability

• more efficient procurement

Standardization also:

• lowers trade barriers

• lowers purchasing costs

• decreases design time

• promotes innovation

• increases new technology speed to market

Because industry can rely on standards for globally harmonized solutions to common issues,

individual companies can devote more time and resources to advance their proprietary technology. In

this way, standards help foster competition, which advances the collective technology of industry and

in turn, creates the need for new and revised standards. This has been the cycle for nearly a century

of aerospace standards solutions.

And, at the heart of those solutions is SAE International, the world’s largest, most respected

aerospace standards development organization (SDO). From design to build, operate, and maintain,

SAE International works hand-in-hand with the global aerospace community to advance industry.

While participation in the standards development process helps the advancement of the industry it

can also contribute to the advancement of your company and personal career.

Corporate Benefits

• Input into the direction of the standards

• Competitive intelligence through advance knowledge of standard direction

• Advance warning of pending regulations and influence over the technical basis of the regulation

• Product liability protections

• Strong relationships with customers and suppliers

• Association with the leading society for advancing mobility technology

Individual Benefits

• Professional development from working contact with peers

• Peer recognition for advancing your industry’s sectors technologies

• Excellent networking and learning opportunities from product developers/users around the world

• Discover emerging technologies

Wright Brothers Medal

• Contribute to the industry’s body of technical knowledge

This award recognizes the author(s) of the best paper(s)

relating to the invention, development, design, construction,
