Abstract

The ASME Subcommittee on Monitoring, Diagnostics, and Prognostics for Advanced Manufacturing has produced this white paper to highlight the rationale and key considerations behind the initiative to develop guidelines for when and where manufacturers should integrate advanced monitoring, diagnostic, and prognostic [prognostics and health monitoring (PHM)] technologies within a factory. The proposed guidelines will include recommended best practices to (a) identify areas where operational efficiencies can be improved; (b)define use cases linked to desired safety, environmental, and cost-benefit factors as well as operational improvements; (c) establish a baseline of current maintenance practices and health-ready capability levels; and (d) implement cost-effective equipment asset condition management (ACM) strategies and measure their effectiveness in improving operational efficiencies. The goal is to help enterprises of all sizes make informed decisions about the addition and integration of PHM technology into factory equipment assets within existing or new manufacturing operations.
