Expanding its data analytics capabilities, Pratt & Whitney's Big Data project leverages its deep engine design understanding with broad operational, maintenance and environmental data, such as flight length and the environment in which the engine is operated, to determine the impact of these combined factors to refine the predictability of average time between heavy maintenance shop visits.

"Our goal is to help our customers get the most value out of their engines throughout the entire lifecycle," said Matthew Bromberg, president of Pratt & Whitney Aftermarket. "Predictive analytics, such as this new project, help us examine how different environments – altitude, climate and pollution – affect the performance of our engines. This allows us to better forecast shop visits, better manage our customers' fleet maintenance and improve our engineering in the long term."

Advanced predictive modeling, combined with innovative maintenance practices, will enable Pratt & Whitney to reduce unplanned engine removals and optimize engine time on wing. This benefits both customers, through improved operational availability, and Pratt & Whitney, through cost reductions across the life of its fleet management agreements.

With more than 10,500 active, installed large commercial engines flying around the world, Pratt & Whitney has been collecting and studying enormous amounts of data from its engines for decades. By implementing predictive analytics, Pratt & Whitney can customize workscopes, provide early warning detection, and improve visibility into the overall health of an operator's engine fleet.

Pratt & Whitney is a world leader in the design, manufacture and service of aircraft engines and auxiliary power units. United Technologies Corp., based in Farmington, Connecticut, provides high-technology systems and services to the building and aerospace industries.
