DIAGNOSTIC HEALTH CONDITION PERFORMANCE MONITORING--DOES THIS MAKE SENSE?

The author discusses the ambiguity of various terms, such as "diagnostics" and "monitoring," that are used by manufacturers of instrument and computerized data collection systems to describe their products. He then lists and describes a hierarchy of five levels of monitoring: status monitoring; condition--or health- condition--monitoring; performance monitoring; diagnostic monitoring; and prognostic monitoring. Guidelines are given to assist in designing an effective monitoring system. New technologies are briefly reviewed.
