A Survey of Artificial Intelligence for Prognostics

Mark Schwabacher, Kai Goebel

Integrated Systems Health Management includes as key elements fault detection, fault diagnostics, and failure prognostics. Whereas fault detection and diagnostics have been the subject of considerable emphasis in the Artificial Intelligence (AI) community in the past, prognostics has not enjoyed the same attention. The reason for this lack of attention is in part because prognostics as a discipline has only recently been recognized as a game-changing technology that can push the boundary of systems health management. This paper provides a survey of AI techniques applied to prognostics. The paper is an update to our previously published survey of data-driven prognostics.
