The purpose of this three-day tutorial is to introduce attendees to empirical modeling techniques for process and equipment monitoring and prognostics. On the first two days the tutorial will provide a background and an overview of equipment condition monitoring, detection, and identification because those are integral to a prognostics system. On the second day, several prognostic techniques will be introduced with a brief background and basic theoretical foundations. The course will be applications oriented in that the assumptions inherent in the techniques will be explained so that the appropriate technique can be selected and applied to solve specific engineering problems. Several understandable case studies will be presented so that attendees can see the general application of these technologies.
