Modern technical systems are complex and subject to an increasing number of potential failure modes. Through instrumentation and measurement of the system characteristics, valuable understanding about the nature of these failures can be gained. In combination with damage calculation, critical operating conditions and the relationship to damage accumulation may be understood and quantified.
Such measurements typically produce large volumes of data, particularly where many units are monitored (e.g. fleet monitoring, distributed generation). At Uptime Engineering we have developed efficient solutions for the analysis, aggregation and interpretation of such information.
The focus of the damage calculation activity is to spend the minimum possible time performing data analysis and calculation, allowing the user the maximum time to focus on understanding of the results in order to make informed engineering judgements about required actions. The developed methods and tools allow efficient and creative problem investigation.
