KLM Royal Dutch Airlines has successfully been using the General Electric Ground-based Engine Monitoring (GEM) system for overall monitoring of on-wing engines for several years.

GEM provides a function for the modular analysis of engines with the Turbine Engine Modular Performance Estimation Routine (TEMPER).

This paper describes the introduction and first applications of the Test Cell TEMPER routine within KLM for the CF6-50 and CF6-80 engines.

The subjects to be discussed include a short description, the installation and the evaluation of the Test Cell TEMPER function. Furthermore, KLM’s first experience with Test Cell TEMPER and KLM’s plans with TEMPER for the near future are discussed.
