SAE AIR4061 Revision B, February 1, 2008
(R) Guidelines for Integrating Typical Engine Health Management Functions Within Aircraft Systems
Includes all amendments and changes through Reaffirmation Notice , October 2012
Published By:SAE International (SAE)
SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) 4061 provides best practice guidelines for the integration of Engine Health Management (EHM) system functions within aircraft systems to include both its main engine(s) and any Auxiliary Power Unit(s) (APU). This document provides an overview of some of the functions EHM typically integrates, offers some system variations encountered with different aircraft, and suggest general considerations involved with integration. It presents a sample EHM parameter coverage matrix to show the types of parameters with which a typical EHM system might interface, offers insight into signal and data processing and retrieval, and offers a view of typical EHM parameter requirements by function. Where practical, this document delineates between military and commercial practices.
This AIR provides guidelines for the integration of engine health management system functions with other aircraft systems and subsystems. It supplements ARP1587 by providing additional guidance on best practices for general EHM functional integration with typical commercial and military aircraft systems. This document assists aircraft and EHM system designers by offering guidelines for physical and functional integration.
