The purpose of this paper is to look into a more effective way for how condition based maintenance using on-line monitoring and prognostics can be applied to the components/systems in the field of a research reactor, which has been demanded to upgrade or modify the existing MMIS. The requirements of the contemporary diagnostics and prognostics herein are briefly introduced and then an assessment of the actual application to a research reactor is reviewed.
