Research challenges
There is a need for a forum where researchers and users can interact for a variety of reasons:
• Universities and research institutions are often looking for research challenges that could make significant contributions to condition monitoring in practice.
• Universities and research institutions may be looking for research or industrial partners in research projects.
• Companies may be looking for universities or research institutions to assist in the development of novel condition monitoring products.
Companies and universities are therefore invited to submit brief invitations for interaction on condition monitoring-related projects, by contacting the Chair of the ISCM Scientific and Technical Committee.
Research challenges could span of activities which include:
• Data acquisition and processing (measurement integrity, optimal sensing, passive and smart sensing, wireless sensors, energy harvesting, signal processing, features)
• Condition monitoring (failure modes and criticality, thresholds)
• Diagnostics (fault classification, condition degradation)
• Prognostics (fault evolution, residual life)
• Life-cycle decision support (optimised operation, optimised maintenance)
• Standards
and emphasise the broader context of condition monitoring and its application in industry.
Benchmark studies
Condition monitoring benchmark studies can become very expensive, but common access to such studies can also promote serious scientific interaction and collaboration in the field of condition monitoring. Links to the following studies are therefore provided here to promote the concept of readily available benchmarks and encourage universities and research institutions active in condition monitoring to make such benchmarks available to the condition monitoring community.
