There is a trend in future commercial aircraft toward more integration of systems, functions, and displays. Many benefits can be realized through proper integration, the most significant being improved operating efficiency. The Advanced Systems Monitor (ASM) is a display integration device using digital data acquisition and processing techniques together with a cathode ray tube or other advanced integrated displays. The ASM provides operating data to the flight crew and maintenance data to the ground crew. While these two functions appear different, the difference is quite often in form rather than substance. The system parametric data used for performance indication to the flight crew often have the intelligence to identify malfunctioning units to the ground crew. This intelligence can be extracted through use of the computer. Incorporation of a computer in the ASM design provides processed data to the crews, as well as raw data. This processed data can take the form of specific instructions for corrective action when system malfunctions occur.
