This article highlights the introduction of digital and maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) at ASME Turbo Expo 2018. The Digital impact begins at the OEM where analytical experiments assess the impact of geometry and boundary conditions on part life/performance. Performance characteristics taken from operational data are integrated with physical characteristics taken from the MRO environment to model and predict new part performance in existing turbomachinery and applied to the design and development of new turbomachinery. Most OEMs today offer an asset monitoring solution based on predictive analytics for their products. Operators and MROs looking for a more universal solution are reaching out to third parties or developing their own asset monitoring systems. Maintenance actions and shop findings are fed back to the asset monitoring solution to provide real time troubleshooting and repair work-scoping, saving valuable time in the operational and MRO environments.
