About the Course

The course is presented by recognized experts in the PHM field and will cover the current state of the art in PHM technologies, sensors and sensing strategies, data mining tools, CBM+ technologies, novel diagnostic and prognostic algorithms as well as a diverse array of application examples/case studies. It is addressed to engineers, scientists, operations managers, educators, small business principals and system designers interested to learn how these emerging technologies can impact their work environment.

Through a lecture (with Q&A), networking and workshop format with specialist experts, participants will:

  1. Describe a baseline for defining the extent and capabilities of PHM, specifically needs and organization.
  2. Identify specific details of PHM Applications (metrics, sensors, cost benefits) and PHM Methods (diagnostics, prognostics, data driven methods, and uncertainty).
  3. Identify issues and needs and a way forward including Continuing Professional Development.
  4. Examine case studies of PHM applications across diverse domains to identify solutions and impacts.
  5. Plan a PHM application in a mini workshop setting with expert group leaders.
Note: A PHM Society Certificate will be provided for nominally 1.4 Continuing Professional Development Units to each participant completing the course.
