Systems Engineering for Prognostics and Health Management (PHM) Systems

Most complex systems are moving toward a “smart” solution, with automated methods for identifying and diagnosing problems. This course will explore how efficient systems can be designed in an effective manner to ensure that they meet performance requirements. Because predictive maintenance is important to the aerospace industry, this course will address systems engineering (SE) and review prognostic health management (PHM) and explain how you can utilize them to obtain a better system. Additionally, it will address requirements management; model-based design; and verification and validation

What Will You Learn

By attending this seminar, you will be able to:
  • Identify basic systems engineering terminology and methods
  • Recognize the fundamentals of PHM systems
  • Summarize why PHM design and development is fundamentally tough in today’s industrial setting
  • Explain how SE can help with PHM design and development

Is This Course For You

This course is designed for engineers in the aviation industry who would benefit from learning how to apply principles associated with systems engineering (SE) and design, verification and validation, model-based design and analysis, and prognostic health management (PHM).
