PHM System Functional Architecture Synthesis
Unlocking the full benefit of a Prognostics and Health Management (PHM) system requires that the system’s functional architecture be matched to the enterprise it supports. To ensure the proper fit of a PHM system and the enterprise it supports, Impact Technologies employs leading systems engineering management and systems engineering techniques. Through these techniques a PHM solution is specified that satisfies the PHM Technical Requirements without duplicating capabilities provided by existing architectures within the enterprise.
PHM Solution in Any Form
The Full-Field PHM Functional Architecture ensures the implementation of a PHM System that provides a PHM
service-set that uses existing services without creating duplicate capabilities. Depending on the capabilities of existing services within an enterprise, synthesis of the PHM System’s Implementation Architecture can range from the addition of individual PHM components to a full end-to-end PHM system. Impact Technologies’ process for the synthesis of PHM Systems ensures that the PHM solution is delivered in a form of greatest value to the targeted enterprise.
Prognostics and Health Management (PHM)
Impact Technologies has developed integrated diagnostic/prognostic technologies for assessing the remaining useful life of aircraft digital electronic boards. Implementation of this e-PHM concept builds on a foundation of usage monitoring, incipient fault detection, and physics–of–failure modeling. This enables an ability to relate circuit health state information including operational history and detection of incipient faults to accurate RUL predictions at any point in the component’s life cycle. Impact has been successful in detecting discernable degraded health states of critical digital components, specifically the processor, prior to Built-In Test (BIT) detection. Current development efforts are targeting on-board deployment for JSF systems and fielding of off-board technology toAautomatic Test Equipment
