Data-driven maintenance that helps you to remove before failure
Prognos for APU® works with data that is routinely electronically collected from the aircraft. The data is stored in the Aircraft Communication and Addressing Reporting System (ACARS) and sent in an automated e-mail format directly from the aircraft to EPCOR’s predictive maintenance server within agreed intervals (for example each time the aircraft lands at its designated home base). The received data is automatically converted into monitoring and evaluation parameters and trend-monitoring graphs (see example) that can be accessed 24/7 by our customers on EPCOR’s secure online portal.
Prognos for APU® can be programmed to issue automated warnings whenever defined pre-set limits are exceeded. A joint analysis of data by our customers and EPCOR’s engineering departments will support the decision to schedule an APU on-wing maintenance operation, to plan an APU removal at the most convenient time based on the availability of aircraft maintenance slots, or to keep the APU under monitoring without further action.
