The aerospace industry presents many challenges when it comes to provide quality and reliability to its users. Many lives depend on the appropriate maintenance and on-time delivery of products and services on a daily basis. Through computerized automation of processes we are able to provide quick results in a reliable way to assure data is managed appropriately and enable good decision-making. Visual Basic for Applications is a programming language that provides a userfriendly foundation for the development of software tools. The scope of this project is to achieve the automation of the usage tracking of an engine health monitoring system and reduce the processing time by integrating multiple steps into one single automated process. The probability of human error and data mishandling was greatly reduced while enhancing productivity by shortening the data processing time. Another benefit is the user’s ability to keep proper statistics of the system client demography. Key Terms - aerospace, automation, engine health monitoring systems, Visual Basic.
