SINGAPORE – ST Engineering and GE Aviation recently signed a multi-year contract to implement Test Cell Advisor in ST Engineering’s CFM56 overhaul shops in Singapore and Xiamen, China.
Test Cell Advisor is a new GE Aviation data analytics service to provide added insights for engine performance analysis during testing. The same service, developed by GE engineers, is in use at GE-owned overhaul shops worldwide.
Test Cell Advisor gives MRO shops servicing GE and CFM International* engines timely analysis of engine performance during return-to-service testing. This way, MRO shop technicians can assess if the engine is operating optimally as expected and if any follow-on actions are required to enhance engine performance.
ST Engineering is one of the first customers of GE’s Test Cell Advisor.
Tay Eng Guan, vice president and general manager of engines MRO at ST Engineering, said, “Digital technology and analytics are the way forward, making maintenance services more efficient and cost effective for operators. The implementation of GE’s Test Cell Advisor is one of the many ways we are incorporating smart technologies. We look forward to the value-add to our customers through the use of the Test Cell Advisor, further improving our high standard in quality and safety.”
The Test Cell Advisor data analytics evaluate hundreds of engine performance trends based on GE’s experience, including vibration, exhaust gas temperature, fuel flow, thrust, core speed and more.
“We are excited to provide Test Cell Advisor services to ST Engineering. With this agreement, ST Engineering will have enhanced capability to improve test cell efficiency and test yields using Test Cell Advisor’s performance trending, analytics and timely recommendations, just as GE’s own overhaul shops have done for many years,” said Tom Levin, vice president and general manager of GE Aviation’s After Market Strategic Solutions.
*CFM International is a 50-50 joint company between GE and Safran Aircraft Engines. CFM56 engines are a product of CFM International.
