Prognostics and health management (PHM) technologies reduce time and costs for maintenance of products or processes through efficient and cost-effective diagnostic and prognostic activities. These activities aim to provide actionable information to enable intelligent decision-making for improved performance, safety, reliability, and maintainability. Thoughtful PHM techniques can have a dramatic impact on manufacturing operations, and standards for PHM system development, data collection and analysis techniques, data management, system training, and software interoperability need to exist for manufacturing. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) conducted a survey of PHM-related standards applicable to manufacturing systems to determine the needs addressed by such standards, the extent of these standards, and any commonalities as well as potential gaps among the documents. Standards from various national and international organizations are summarized, including those from the International Electrotechnical Commission, the International Organization for Standardization, and SAE International. Finally, areas for future PHM-related standards development are identified.
