contribution to opstimal

Diehl Aerospace brings its knowledge of cabin systems to Opstimal. Diehl Aerospace is involved in workpackages “Predictive Maintenance” (2), “Turnaround, Fleet, Crew & Passengers” (3) and “Holistic Optimization” (4). The company wants to explore how data can be efficiently transferred to and from the cabin as well as analyse collected cabin data for predictive health monitoring. Workpackage 3, subcontracted to Technische Universität Braunschweig, serves to visualize and manage maintenance-related cabin information on the ground in order to improve corresponding turnaround durations. In workpackage 4, the results obtained from workpackages 2 and 3 are integrated together with focus on holistic optimization and feedback to cabin systems for improved results with respect to health monitoring.
