Degradation modeling and maintenance of a dynamic system in automotive industry

A root location-based framework for degradation modeling of dynamic systems with predictive maintenance perspective
  1. Let a system described with a differential equation or more generaly with a state-space representation.
  2. The system behavior is altered due to intrinsic stochastic degradation phenomena. Here, it can be seen four possible evolutions with time of the system main root in the complex plane. The root evolves randomly reflecting the loss of system performance. The circle stands for the healthy operating zone.
  3. Instead of a bivariate modeling in the complex plane, the stochastic trajectories in step 2 are modeled with a non-linear univariate diffusion process in time domain. 
  4. Finally, the prognosis of the system remaining useful life is derived as well as two predictive maintenance policies.
  5. Optimizing of such policies allows to maintain systems at lower cost in an economic and sustainable manner without costly monitoring equipment.
