Elective: Condition Based Maintenance: Overview and Applications

Condition Based Maintenance (CBM) aims to reduce life cycle ownership costs and increase system readiness by performing maintenance upon evidence of need. CBM was adopted by the US DoD in the form of Condition Based Maintenance Plus (CBM+). CBM+ expands on the CBM concepts, encompassing other technologies, processes, and procedures that enable improved maintenance and logistics practices.

Students will receive a comprehensive overview of Condition Based Maintenance (CBM) and its applications to weapons systems. Special emphasis is placed on CBM+ concepts, technologies and tools. This three-day course presents the various categories of functionality required in CBM systems, including data acquisition, signal processing, state detection, diagnostics, prognostics, and decision support. Examples cover both established solutions and innovative approaches.

The course describes the technical architectures of CBM systems and presents the applicable industry standards. A Systems Engineering Process (SEP) for designing and implementing CBM systems is described. In addition, the course outlines the various issues that maintenance managers and engineers must consider in the introduction of a CBM program. Students are exposed to several application examples, encompassing both industrial installations and weapons systems illustrate the strengths and challenges of the CBM approach.
