Panel Session Topics

Panel Session 1

Full Flight Sensor Data sharing within the stakeholders of PHM
OrganizerMasaru (ken) Nishiwaki (ANA)
Panelists1. Darren Macer (Boeing)
2. Gavin Chew (Collins Aerospace)
3. Sebastian Lang (Lufthansa Technik)
4. Manabu Tono (ANA)
AbstractIn case of Prognostics & Health Management (PHM) for commercial airplanes, gigabytes of Full Flight Sensor Data have to be collected, distributed and analyzed within the stakeholders immediately so that the outcome of the PHM can be provided in a timely manner. In this panel session, attendees will have an opportunity to hear about how the sensor data can be shared and analyzed efficiently to support airline operations.
Panelists: Airplane OEM (Boeing), Component OEM (Collins Aerospace), MRO (Lufthansa Technik) and Airline (ANA)

Possible topics:
1. Challenges to share the Full Flight Sensor Data within the stakeholders under certain policies (Ownership of the data, Restriction of sharing, etc.) of each entity
2. Technical challenges to distribute, aggregate and analyze the gigabytes of data in a timely manner
3. Opinions against “Concept of Centralized Data” (Common data center in the aviation industry) to explore more potential utilizing Full Flight Sensor Data (Point of view: Data anonymization, Data Aggregation, etc …)
4. Others
