Abstract
This research is triggered by the emerging ‘power by the hour’® paradigm, in which aero engines are

effectively leased to airlines, with the manufacturing company remaining responsible for their

maintenance and repair throughout their service life. By incorporating knowledge about the

performance of existing products into the design phase of new products, it is hoped to tackle some of

the in-service problems at the design stage. In the aerospace sector, it is standard design practice to

utilise the experience gained from past projects, but that from in-service has not been given sufficient

attention. In this context, the aims of our ongoing research are: (1) to understand the current... (More)
This research is triggered by the emerging ‘power by the hour’® paradigm, in which aero engines are

effectively leased to airlines, with the manufacturing company remaining responsible for their

maintenance and repair throughout their service life. By incorporating knowledge about the

performance of existing products into the design phase of new products, it is hoped to tackle some of

the in-service problems at the design stage. In the aerospace sector, it is standard design practice to

utilise the experience gained from past projects, but that from in-service has not been given sufficient

attention. In this context, the aims of our ongoing research are: (1) to understand the current flows of

in-service information to designers; (2) to understand the in-service information requirements of

designers; (3) to develop the most appropriate theories and methods to support designers in their new

task of creating engines which will perform reliably and economically throughout their service life.

This paper presents the results of the initial phase of research project and addresses the first aim of the

research. In particular, this paper investigates the various in-service information sources available to

designers, and their content. The information stored in these sources is examined to investigate its

ability to answer the designers’ questions regarding in-service information. (Less)
