"Impact Technologies proposes an Integrated System Design and Maintenance Modeling Tool (ISDMMT) for automating and optimizing the prescription element associated with prognostic information used to facilitate condition based maintenance (CBM). The ISDMMTconsists of a core real-time distributed computing substrate, wrapped with a Health Management API (Application Programming Interface) layer that provides abstractions that bridge the gap between the health management system domain and the coredistribution substrate. The proposed system uses innovative software agents and distributed computing tools to enable the efficient use of emerging prognostic-based health management system technologies. As part of the Phase I demonstration, intelligentsensor validation and prognostic algorithms will be developed for integration into the maintenance modeling system. Genetic algorithms will be used for optimization of the health management system in the functions of reliability, technical risk,complexity and overall life cycle costs. APIs will be developed for supporting the progressive integration of specialized prescription algorithms. An innovative software platform, ConstellationTM from Real Time Innovation, Inc will be used for thedevelopment of ISDMMT. ConstellationTM integrates tools and standards like UML, CORBA, Simulink, and graphical programming into one end-to-end development environment. It will speed up the coding process, de
