Guide to Life Usage Monitoring and Parts Management for Aircraft Gas Turbine Engines
- Aerospace Standard
The effectiveness of Engine Life Usage Monitoring and Parts Management systems is largely determined by the aircraft-specific requirements. This document addresses the following areas: safety, life-limiting criteria, life usage algorithm development, data acquisition and management, parts life tracking, design feedback, and cost effectiveness.
It primarily examines the requirements and techniques currently in use, and considers the potential impact of new technolog to the following areas: parts classification and control requirements, failure causes of life-limited parts, engine life prediction and usage measurement techniques, method validation, parts life usage data management, lessons learned, and life usage tracking benefits.
SAE ARP1587 provides general guidance on the design consideration and objectives of monitoring systems for aircraft gas turbine engines. A major function of these Engine Monitoring Systems is to monitor the usage of life-limited parts in order to maximize available life and to enhance aircraft safety.
The purpose of this document is to review the current approaches to Engine Life Usage Monitoring and Parts Management. The document also serves to provide a summary of the many varied requirements of aircraft turbine engine life usage monitoring and parts management and a description of the means by which these requirements can be achieved more effectively through the use of engine monitoring systems.

BackgroundEngine condition monitoring and rotorcraft HUMS(Health and Usage Monitoring Systems)can be used as a tool to track and restore engine performance, improve problem diagnosis, suggest solutions, promote better commercial and military aircraft operation, minimize in-flight failures, and reduce costs of engine maintenance. Because of these and other continuing objectives, the need for consolidated action by a group of experts to promote engine monitoring and rotorcraft condition monitoring know-how and standards was identified. It was deemed appropriate by the SAE Propulsion Division to assign this task to a special committee designated as Committee E-32. The committee has existed for over 40 years and has 26 active members. Purpose / Charter E-32 Committee serves as a forum to gather, record, and publish expert information in the discipline of aerospace propulsion system health management. The Committee gathers and analyzes requirements for propulsion system health management for the various types of air vehicle propulsion systems and develops standards and recommendations for the adoption of aerospace propulsion system health management devices that affect the operation of propulsion systems. Objectives Identifies potential propulsion system parameters suitable for sensing (pressure, temperature, vibration, etc.) and considerations involved in selecting parameters (potential problems, accuracy, cost, etc.), Analyzes the various approaches to aerospace propulsion system health management (e.g., airborne vibration health management systems, fault prediction capabilities, ground software interfaces, etc.) and establishes criteria for cost effective systems, and guidance regarding best practices for designing propulsion health management systems, Develops appropriate standards for aerospace propulsion system health management equipment and techniques; e.g., types of sensors, identification of signals which should be led to common diagnostic connectors, etc., Develops new requirements and uses for aerospace propulsion system health management to promote sustainable and cost effective operation of air vehicles, and Hosts technical conferences related to health management of propulsion systems. Provide a means to gain regulatory approval for utilizing EHM data in a range of maintenance activities.
