EVALUATION TECHNIQUE FOR DETERMINING THE COST EFFECTIVENESS OF CONDITION MONITORING SYSTEMS

The technique uses historical data combined with catalog cost estimating to estimate both the life cycle cost of the condition monitoring system and the potential cost savings offered by the system for commercial engines. The results are obtained in a form that can be easily converted to any of the primary cost-effectiveness parameters in current use by industry. Key to the technique is the definition of a series of condition monitoring system concepts of increasing complexity for analysis, with each increase representing a logical step with respect to cost-effectiveness. This feature permits the results of the cost-effectiveness analysis to be applied directly to the design definition process without iteration or further cost analysis.
