Developments in processor-based condition monitoring (CM) equipment afford access to data in a format compatible with established and emerging data processing technology, permitting the integration of CM with maintenance management tools and management advisory systems. Many of the component parts of these systems, such as maintenance, process control and task scheduling packages, are established. The integration of these packages with complex CM information, however, requires the application of both conventional and knowledge-based information handling techniques (IKBS). This paper is based on work carried out over a two-year period in connection with the application of CM techniques to propulsion and ancillary machinery for naval vessels. Over that period, CM development work has also been carried out for applications on unmanned oil platforms and electrical generating equipment. On the basis of this experience, gained across a range of industries, areas are identified where the common interests of these industries can be met by the amalgamation of IKBS, traditional CM techniques, and the introduction of improved data collection methods.
