GE Aviation’s fleet of 35,000 engines produce more than 100 million flight records each year, which equates to roughly one million terabytes of data captured each day. From engine diagnostics and maintenance requirements, to flight patterns and fuel usage, this data can be used to accelerate industry-wide efficiency and growth. By leveraging Tableau’s leading analytics platform, GE Aviation is making it easier for airlines to access, understand and take action on this data. Airlines can now explore customer reports created in Tableau through Predix, GE’s cloud-based software platform for industrial applications. Airlines can perform further analysis of sensor data from the flight (from engines, airframes, flaps, landing gear etc.) as well as the health of the aircraft itself (ground operations, maintenance, crewing etc.) with Tableau’s powerful, easy-to-use platform.
The combination of Tableau and Predix allows customers to harmonize GE Aviation's industry domain expertise across aircraft engines and systems with key operational insights through streamlined dashboards and meaningful reports to be shared across the organization. Bringing these capabilities together empowers aviation customers with agile visual analytics that improve fuel efficiency, aircraft safety, and consumers' overall flight experience.
