Fault Signature Development

In order to properly detect machinery condition and precursors to failure, it is imperative to have the capability to catch those failures. If you are missing key measurements or rely on data that could indicate multiple failure types, the job can be difficult.

The Application Center can define the critical failure modes, determine the fault signatures, determine the key measurements and condition indicators to monitor these faults, and ensure that your monitoring program is designed to diagnose failures with early warning. This knowledge can be integrated into your maintenance program. Complex fault signatures and trending patterns on large numbers of equipment can be built into an automated program for optimal fleet decision-making capabilities.
