components on the aircraft than any other type prior to that, "
Sander de Bree, founder and CEO of EXSYN Aviation Solutions,
said. " This jumpstarted the pursuit in aviation to use this onboard
data for condition monitoring purposes and subsequently derive
prediction models from this that could indicate likeliness of component failures. "
Elliott contrasts the improved data collection to a traditional,
hand written logbook where information can only be seen serially
by one person at a time.
" Handwritten entries are not searchable, cannot be used in analytics and cannot be mined for information. All the data inside a
logbook is dark - useless, " Elliott said. " Now, if we introduce an
electronic, connected logbook, it can be used by multiple people at
the same time, from anywhere. A mechanic can see what faults are
on the aircraft, arrange for proper parts and tools and be productive
the moment he gets to the aircraft. And, of course, that digital data

can be aggregated and mined. The Internet of Things (IoT) will
also help, with sensors being used to measure and collect data. "
Elliott added that according to a 2016 Oliver Wyman MRO Survey,
the global fleet of commercial aircraft could generate a massive 98
million terabytes of data per year by 2026.
The IFS Maintenix predictive maintenance solution was utilized
by the U.S. Navy in the 90's to crunch through engine health monitoring data to model and predict the failure of engine components.
Today, IFS supports airline customers to automatically update predicted maintenance deadlines for every life-limited component
inside their Trent engines, in collaboration with Rolls-Royce and
its Blue Data Thread digital strategy.
Within the EXSYN data operations platform, EXSYN offers a solution that they call the AOG risk monitor, said de Bree. " AOG, meaning
Aircraft On Ground. This solution uses machine learning models
in order to visualize the risk existing on aircraft running into AOG
