Abstract
"An Opens System Architecture (OSA) for Condition Based Maintenance (CBM) is being developed through a cooperative development between industry and the Department of Defense. This OSA-CBM standard defines critical software interfaces at various architecturelevels including Data Manipulation, Condition Monitoring, Health Assessment, Prognostics and Decision Support.Intelligent Automation Corporation has developed an open architecture Intelligent Machinery Diagnostic System (iMDS) toolbox based on the Mathworks Simulink software environment. The iMDS toolbox provides proven CBM software modules at various levels ofthe OSA-CBM architecture including Data Manipulation, Condition Monitoring, Health Assessment, Prognostics and Decision Support. IAC proposes adding a OSA-CBM compliant set of input and output tools to the iMDS toolbox that would provide an extremelypowerful yet open software architecture for CBM system development.The enhanced iMDS toolset can easily be applied to aviation, vehicle and shipboard CBM applications by third parties. Using a Mathworks/Simulink software environment allows the applications to be generated and tested quickly in an easy-to-use graphicalenvironment. Code generation features of the Mathworks Simulink system provide a mechanism to generate C code that could be used in a variety of CBM acquisition and processing systems. The Department of Defense is interested in having this software architecture support
