Today's providers of maintenance and in-service support related to modern aircraft are facing major challenges. A central problem with maintenance and support of aircraft and other complex technical systems is to manage the ever-increasing information flow and system complexity. Both military and commercial operators need to reduce downtime and one way to do this is to speed up the turnaround time for scheduled and unscheduled maintenance, or even better, to reduce the need thereof by implementing condition based maintenance. In order to implement these improved support solutions in a global support environment, eMaintenance is seen as one important building block. eMaintenance includes monitoring, collection, recording and distribution of real-time system health data, maintenance generated data as well as other decision and performance support to all stakeholders independent of organization or geographical location, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week (24/7). eMaintenance has the potential to improve the management and performance of activities related to the maintenance process, and thereby improve the dependability, safety and life cycle cost of critical systems. This is realized through the application of Information & Communication Technology (ICT) throughout the maintenance and support processes, thus integrating built-in tests, external tests at different maintenance echelons, technical information, diagnostics, prognostics and other sources of support information. The purpose of this paper is to present some results from a joint academic and aerospace industry research project, describing requirements and expectations that are important in a global support environment, and also to propose some central components in an eMaintenance framework that integrates maintenance and ICT perspectives.
