Abstract : The Comprehensive Engine Management System (CEMS) Phase IV, will provide real time data analysis capability for all Air Force oil analysis laboratories. This paper describes the statistical algorithm used by this system to aid the oil analysis technician in making his recommendations. The algorithms incorporates usage and oil consumption variables, and employs least squares to minimize the effects of the random errors in the spectrometer readings. (Author)
