COMPREHENSIVE DIAGNOSTIC SYSTEM FOR SHIP'S PROPULSION AND POWER MACHINERY

This article describes a comprehensive diagnostic expert system (ADES) developed by Renk AG of Augsburg, West Germany, for ship's propulsion and power machinery. ADES has been designed to integrate the functions of all other machinery monitoring systems aboard ship. The information is analyzed by inference mechanisms, based on programs governing parameters related to all systems and data stored in a knowledge data bank. It is then processed to form conclusions. Subsystem programs incorporate diagnostics, trend developments, forecasts, and remedial or maintenance measures. Schematic drawings of the system illustrate the text.
