PHM Commander as Prognostics Health Management Software

About Prognostics Health Management

What problem do engineers face?

One of the main tasks of system engineers / maintenance engineers is to plan the appropriate maintenance policy that yields the highest system availability rate, at the lowest maintenance cost, while not compromising safety.

There are a number of approaches to system maintenance:

Failure Diagnostics – which is performed AFTER a failure occurs
Failure Prognostics – which is performed BEFORE a failure occurs

Prognostics provides for detection of failures before failures occur by means of calculating RUL (Remaining Useful Life).

PHM Solution by ALD

Prognostics Health Management Software

PHM Commander, the PHM software by ALD can solve the maintenance dillemma, being a basis for Smart Condition Based Maintenance (CBM). This unique PHM tool is designed for easy calculation of RUL as the basis for CBM.

PHM Commander Main Features:

•    Data Import Wizard (supporting XML, Excel, CSV)
•    Trendable / Non-Trendable Data
•    Data “Smoothing”
•    Cross Validation
•    Built-in Unique PHM / RUL Algorithms
•    Parameter and Algorithms Set-Up by Users – straight forward and easy to comprehend
•    Report Generator
•    Suitable for both Electronic and Mechanical Equipment
•    The Basis for Smart “Condition Based Maintenance”

PHM Commander Contribution to Maintenance Decision Making:

This PHM software can ensure a radical improvement of equipment reliability, safety, maintainability, and key performance indicators (KPI). ALD's PHM approach is a departure from the traditional manufacturer-driven-maintenance policy practiced today by facilities like MRO and SHOP repairs. PHM Commander is your basis for prognostics based maintenance policy.
ALD PHM approach is a holistic approach to system maintenance based on Prognostics Health Management (PHM).

ALD PHM solution supports Data Driven (model free) approach.

ALD Data Driven approach provides the freedom to conduct PHM calculation across various equipment types, making the tool universal while not compromising RUL accuracy.

PHM Commander Supports Two Sets of Algorithms:

• For statistics with “trendability”;
• For statistics without “trendability”, but with “accumulation”.
