"Global Technology Connection, Inc. in collaboration with the Georgia Institute of Technology and its industrial partners (General Electric, Lockheed and others,) proposes to conceptualize, define and demonstrate key features of an integrated model-basedsoftware framework whose product will assist eventually the maintenance manager and the systems designer to select the "best" prescription for assessing the effectiveness and fault coverage of available models but also to utilize the accumulated knowledgetowards continuously improving the design or re-design of critical military or industrial assets. The enabling technologies for this automated prescription-targeted software architecture include novel intelligent agent based information management anddecision support logic tools, a hybrid object-oriented modeling methodology, diagnostic and prognostic algorithms already developed by this research team, a case-based reasoning paradigm to assess the accumulated evidence and support the decision making,and an open systems architecture compatible with OSA CBM levels for implementation purposes. A typical shipboard system will be selected as the testbed for proof-of-concept purposes. An aggressive productization/commercialization and tech transfer agendawill be drafted to facilitate Phase II and III work. The results of this project will assist the U.S. Navy initially and other government and industry sectors actively engaged in CBM pr
