Pratt & Whitney has launched EngineWise, a new service brand to better represent what it offers and how it is evolving to improve the predictability, reliability and health of customers’ fleets.
EngineWise encompasses all the initiatives Pratt & Whitney has to share intelligence including technical expertise, fleet data and business information with customers – so they can make smarter decisions that keep their engines, operations and businesses healthy. It covers all commercial engine products services by Pratt & Whitney, including Pratt & Whitney Canada and International Aero Engines (IAE) products.
EngineWise unifies Pratt & Whitney’s services portfolio that:

capturing thousands of engine and aircraft data parameters throughout full flight cycle, instead of snapshots at takeoff and cruise, to better monitor engine performance through e-FAST data ecosystem.
· Involves significant investments in new technology and resources such as
o Investments in technology and infrastructure to upgrade equipment, add capacity and expand capability in the network of facilities
o Enhanced customer training capability with e-training and 3-D animations, and will develop virtual reality training tools to enable effective training from remote locations
