Measurement Science Roadmap for Prognostics and Health Management for Smart Manufacturing Systems



Joan Pellegrino, Mauricio Justiniano, Anand Raghunathan, Brian Weiss


The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) hosted the Roadmapping Workshop: Measurement Science for Prognostics and Health Management of Smart Manufacturing Systems (PHM4SMS) at its Gaithersburg, MD campus to bring together over 60 PHM experts from industry, government, national laboratories, and academia. The participants were charged with identifying the measurement science challenges and associated research and development (R&D) needs for PHM in the context of smart manufacturing. This report details the findings from this first-ever event with highlights in the three key areas of 1) PHM Manufacturing Process Techniques and Metrics, 2) PHM Performance Assessment, and 3) PHM Infrastructure: Hardware, Software, and System Integration. The information is useful to both public and private decision-makers interested in furthering the capabilities of PHM and expanding its use in the smart manufacturing sector.
