Large complex systems, such as power plants, ships and aircraft, are composed of multiple systems, subsystems and components. When they are considered as embedded in system operating as a fleet, it raises mission readiness and maintenance management issues. PHM (Prognostics and Health Management) plays a key role for controlling the performance level of such systems, at least on the basis of adapted PHM strategies and system developments. However, considering a fleet implies to provide managers and engineers with a relevant synthesis of information and keep it updated regarding both the global health of the fleet and the current status of their maintenance efforts. For achieving PHM at a fleet level, it is thus necessary to manage relevant corresponding knowledge arising both from modeling and monitoring of the fleet. In that way, this paper presents a knowledge structuring scheme for fleet PHM management applied to marine domain.
