  • Patent number: 11334854
    Abstract: Methods, apparatus, systems, and articles of manufacture to generate an asset workscope are disclosed. An example system includes an asset health calculator to identify an asset on which to perform maintenance based on generating a first asset health quantifier corresponding to a first asset health status, a task generator to determine a first workscope including first asset maintenance tasks, and a task optimizer to determine a second workscope including second asset maintenance tasks based on the first asset health quantifier and/or first workscope. The example system includes a workscope effect calculator to generate a second asset health quantifier corresponding to a second asset health status when the second workscope is completed on the asset, and to update the asset health calculator, task generator, and/or task optimizer to improve determination of first and/or second workscopes to improve the second asset health quantifier relative to the first asset health quantifier.

  • Publication number: 20220083040
    Abstract: Methods, apparatus, systems, and articles of manufacture are disclosed to generate a predictive asset health quantifier of a turbine engine. An example apparatus includes a performance model analyzer to determine a fleet behavior parameter by generating a reference performance model using historical information for a fleet of operators using turbine engines, generate a residual performance model based on calculating a difference between the fleet behavior parameter and a plurality of operator behavior parameters, identify an operator as a candidate improvement target based on comparing the operator behavior parameters corresponding to the operator to the fleet in the residual performance model, and determine an adjusted operator behavior parameter for the candidate improvement target.

  • Patent number: 10949813
    Abstract: Methods, apparatus, systems, and articles of manufacture to generate workscope tasks. An example apparatus includes a workscope task generator and a workscope task processor. The example workscope task generator is to process an asset health quantifier and a next mission criterion for a target asset according to a workscope transfer function to generate a set of workscope tasks for maintenance of the asset at a desired health state to satisfy the next mission criterion, the workscope tasks involving a location, a resource, and a time for maintenance of the engine. When the generated set of workscope tasks does not satisfy a lifecycle expectation for the asset, the generated set of workscope tasks is modified by the workscope task processor to generate a set of targeted, forecast workscope tasks from the modified set of workscope tasks to trigger maintenance of the engine.
