A Failure-Dependency Modeling and State Discretization Approach for Condition-Based Maintenance Optimization of Multi-Component Systems

Topics: Critical Infrastructure Theory,

In this piece, researchers address the issue of maintenance for mechanical systems with complex interdependencies. They write that most current paradigms consider the degradation of individual components as being independent of one another with models inadequately showing the relationships between them. To combat this problem, the authors propose a new approach that is capable of explaining how the condition of one component affects the hazard rate of another and, in turn, optimize their interaction.
