Providing Assurance On Diagnostics And Prognostics Technology – Joseph Morelos

The adoption of diagnostics and prognostics technology is accelerating in different industries. Fundamentally diagnostics is a “health meter” describing the state of the fault, degradation, failure modes in question. Given the deployment of the technology in industrial and safety critical applications there is a need to develop legible approach proving the effectiveness of the technology.

Learning points:

  • Diagnostics and prognostic technologies are enablers of availability and safety
  • Diagnostics acts as a “failure meter” employing sophisticated analytical techniques based on sensors and other information
  • In reviewing diagnostics and prognostics, there is a need to decompose the architecture into different functional blocks
  • A robust assurance framework will be necessary to provide comprehensible metrics that allow confidence and wider acceptance of the technology
