Abstract:

This paper introduces a concept for building up distributed monitoring and diagnostic systems for complex industrial applications. The diagnostic process, from accessing sensor data up to the visualization within a graphical user interface is described by universal applicable formalisms. Generic mechanisms were identified to improve the quality of a diagnosis by integrating legacy diagnostic engines and handling different diagnostic mechanisms in parallel. For this purpose, a modular multi-agent architecture and a set of development tools were implemented. This software architecture for monitoring and diagnosis was developed within the framework of the EU Esprit Program DIAMOND DIstributed Architecture for MONitoring and Diagnosis.
