I am at the 23rd meeting of the Industry Advisory Board of the Center for Intelligent Maintenance Systems. I can’t make every one, but I get here when I can.

This is a really smart group of Ph.D. and Post-doc researchers who are looking into modeling prognostics and diagnostics. Several companies are here, too, such as National Instruments and Forcam. GE Aviation has been a big sponsor, today we’ll hear from P&G, Spirit Aerosystems and Applied Materials.

Among the posters showing research set up in the hall were a couple of interesting ones: Estimation of Maintenance Opportunity Windows in Manufacturing Systems; Importance Measure-based Reliability Improvements for Multi-State Systems.

Hope to get some good engineering papers for Automation World out of this.
