For the four processes of aero engine health management, which are composed of condition monitoring, diagnostics, prognostics and prescriptive action, a four-layer architecture of aero engine health management divided into data layer, transaction layer, decision layer and users layer, is designed based on multi-agent. Corresponding to the function of each layer, six agent roles are defined, such as condition monitoring, information fusion, fault diagnosis, task consultation, rules management

The various steps involved in developing a multi-agent system using JADE (Java Agent Development Framework) are discussed. This paper provides theoretical conception for intelligent monitoring and intelligent fault diagnosis of aero engine, and for further research of multi-agent collaboration on multi-agent system.
