Prognostic and health management (PHM) in the aviation industry is expanding because of its effect on economic and human safety. Advanced maintenance shall be applied to this industry to inform aircraft engine conditions. PdM (Predictive Maintenance) is an advanced maintenance technique that can be applied to the aviation industry because of its high-precision prediction. Combining PdM as a technique to calculate the RUL (Remaining Useful Lifetime ) and ML (Machine Learning) as a tool to make high-accuracy predictions is mixed together that accurately forecasts the state of aircraft machine condition and on the best time to get the maintenance or service. In this work, we use the NASA Commercial Modular Aero-Propulsion System Simulation (C-MAPSS) data set. This work proposes GRU to determine RUL on aircraft engines to implement a Predictive maintenance strategy. For the training parameters tested in this study, we used a batch size of 512, a learning rate with Adam optimizer of 0.001, then epochs of 200. The essence of the results of this experiment is to obtain a new method with a simpler calculation process and the epoch value and a faster prediction process compared to other methods used, and the results obtained can approach the original value from an economic point of view and the RUL prediction process using the GRU.
