PHM Society Short Course - PHM Applications and Case Studies

Date: Saturday, September 26, 2020 – Sunday, September 27, 2020
Time: 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM

This introductory one-day course is taught by recognized international experts in the PHM field. It will cover a survey of the current Prognostics and Health Management tools and technologies, Condition Based Maintenance (CBM+) technologies, 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 several specialist experts, you will:

  1. Establish 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, reliability) and PHM Methods (diagnostics, prognostics, data driven methods and uncertainty)
  3. Examine case studies of PHM applications across diverse domains to identify solutions and impacts
  4. Plan a PHM application in two mini workshop settings with expert facilitators
  5. Identify PHM issues and needs and a way forward including Continuing Professional Development

Topics include:

  • Introduction to PHM (Taxonomy, scope, basics, standards- for all talks)
  • Deriving Requirements and Metrics for PHM
  • Case Study for requirements/metrics (Description of an application)
  • Application Case Studies (Case studies for prognosis and data analytics)
  • Analysis mini-workshop (Group data design activity- worksheet based)
  • Condition Based Maintenance (CBM+) and Integrated Vehicle Health Monitoring Technologies
  • Plenary - Issues and Needs (Review to compile collected issues from all participants)
  • Fielded Systems Case Studies-1 (Case studies for CBM and Reliability)
  • Fielded Systems Case Studies-2 (Case study for Cost Benefit Analysis)
  • System design mini-workshop (Group activity- worksheet based)
  • Way forward (Paths, Resources, Continuing Professional Development)

A printed set of course material and a certificate of completion (with Continuing Education Units) as well as all breaks and a light lunch are provided.

Invited from GE, Georgia Tech, Penn State, Schlumberger, TECnos (bios to follow)

… Bottom Line: Education is important to The PHM Society Education
Taking a course first is an excellent preparation to benefit from the conference and to meet students, professors and industry people from around the world and across diverse sectors.

Come for the entire conference and get reduced tuition. Special rates for fulltime students.

The educational and training experience is even better at the conference- free tutorials, workshops, peer-reviewed technical papers, poster sessions, technology demonstrations, doctoral symposium, data challenge and panel sessions. And the social events are planned to help make networking easy and enjoyable.
