Earlier this year, UTC Aerospace Systems introduced the Aircraft System Health Management (ASHM) Tool, a web application that takes in Aircraft Condition Monitoring Function (ACMF) reports for the various subsystems and components of an aircraft platform, parses and stores those reports in an application database, processes those reports for alert conditions and comparisons against predicted values that it computes, and serves the report data and the processed results as part of a fleet view available to airline and maintenance users logged into the ASHM web application.
The ASHM application uses Informatica PowerCenter to parse and store incoming report data and Informatica RulePoint to apply alert rules and analytic processing to the report data as it is persisted to the ASHM database. This paper describes how UTC Aerospace Systems leveraged the Informatica tool suite to achieve a short development cycle, robust transaction processing, and scalability to other aircraft systems and other aircraft platforms.
