Engine Health Management in Safran Aircraft Engines



Guillaume Bastard Jérome Lacaille Josselin Coupard Yacine Stouky


Engine Health Management (EHM) is the up to date solution that is used by Aircraft Engine Manufacturers in order to maintain an engine operative through a reduction of operational events that impact its availability for end customers. The aim of EHM systems is to monitor and forecast the health status of an engine based on operational data in order to reduce the interruption of the clients operations and contribute to provide the best affordable maintenance of an engine. This paper describes the architecture of an EHM system designed to monitor Safran Aircraft Engines products.
