Abstract:

Advances in condition-based maintenance CBM are being driven by an array of technologies, including speed and miniaturization of signal processing hardware improvements in power supplies and sources and smaller, lower-cost RF transmitters. As the set of industries and organizations that are developing and integrating these technologies into CBM components and systems move forward, they should insure that a balance is achieved between technology-push and customer-pull. The existing and potential customers span a wide range of technical sophistication. Many have a thorough understanding of the science and engineering behind the CBM systems that are evolving. Others, just as important as customers, look to us, to provide them with the appropriate tools to achieve the savings and productivity they have been led to expect. Failure to provide not only excellent engineering, but also good fit, will result in black eyes for all of us. Less noble, but more obvious, we will fail as business people if we dont listen to our customers. The author has had the good fortune to deal with CBM clients ten years ago and to find himself back in that community again. Comparisons are available, and trends stand out. The customers are, indeed, different.
