6 OCTOBER 2018 AIRCRAFT MAINTENANCE TECHNOLOGY INDUSTRY OUTLOOK Connecting the Data Honeywell's GoDirect Connected Maintenance helps airlines leverage data to reduce downtime and improve operational efficiencies As heavy-duty trucks travel interstate highways, onboard Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) sensors are collecting, sending, and receiving information via cloud-based fleet management systems. Trucking fleets are increasingly tapping into this data stream to predict asset failure and schedule maintenance from the road. With this data in hand, fleets are moving from predictive to prescriptive maintenance and are reducing downtime and improving operational efficiencies as a result. But did you know that the IIoT, which has already been driving value in factories, trucks, and even trains, is also available to the airline industry? Just as sensors on trucks gather intel to run fleets, today’s sophisticated aircraft generate a wealth of health and performance data. Honeywell’s GoDirect Connected Maintenance leverages the power of an aircraft’s IIoT capabilities to monitor mechanical systems’ health and performance. It analyzes data coming from A TECHNICIAN checks an aircraft armed with information from Honeywell's GoDirect Connected Maintenance systems. HONEYWELL
