Simulation Framework and Certification Guidance for Condition Monitoring and Prognostic Health Management



Published Jul 3, 2012

The most prominent challenges to the successful qualification of Integrated System Health Monitoring (ISHM) systems are appropriate technology development processes and Verification & Validation (V&V) methods towards certification. This paper outlines a survey of recent ISHM programs in diverse industrial sectors across the globe, offers guideline towards ISHM development at each Technology Readiness Level (TRL), and sets forth a V&V process and certification roadmap. This paper provides insight into Cassidian’s ISHM Simulation framework and emphasizes the relevance of this framework to an effective V&V solution of ISHM.
