System framework for LCM

A system model with a layered structure, well-defined interfaces, and detailed functionalities has been established for the Aeronautical Life Cycle Monitoring System (ALCMS). The unique features include the epidemiological tool to track defects, the use of supplementary data such as flight data and other data sets such as weather to support diagnosis and prognosis, part biography and graphical query, as well as a maintenance schedule optimisation tool.

The work has resulted in a prototype demonstrator developed by the University of Limerick and a software tool of ADSIP-LCM by the University of Central Lancashire. Whilst the former shows the functionalities of ALCMS, the latter enables visualisation and examination of defects by registering and interactive viewing of a sequence of non-destructive testing images as 3D data.
