Integrated Vehicle Health Management Workshop
27 April 2015 - Cranfield University, Bedford, UK
Along with the rapidly evolving field of civil airline services, Integrated Vehicle Health Management (IVHM) technologies (such as sensors and algorithms) are enabling improved diagnostic capabilities and the potential for a step change in aircraft and fleet maintenance and operations based on prognostics that reliably predict remaining life of key assets such as aircraft components (e.g. actuators) and sub-systems (e.g. landing gear). Achieving Maintenance Credits for this will require close co-operation between industry stakeholders such as platform integrators, regulators, airlines and MRO&L providers.

This event - which follows on from 3 previous related events organised by the RAeS Air Transport Specialist Group - will feature a series of speakers addressing the IVHM future state and the process towards obtaining Maintenance Credits from OEMs, Operators and Regulators and will centre around 3 interactive workshops to support and advance industry and stakeholder collaboration through:

• Engagement with the Regulators
• The Maintenance Credits Process
• Data Interoperability
