Application of Machine Learning to Mechanical Equipment Diagnostics

Machines of all varieties have failure modes which if predicted can reduce business costs, reduce downtime and increase safety. Failure prediction can be model- or data-based. Both methods require that patterns be recognized which provide an indication of the failure mode. Machine learning methods such as convolutional neural networks are being used to increase the speed and accuracy of failure predictions. This course is an introduction to the application of machine learning to equipment diagnostics. Data requirements and sources, types of applicable machine learning, implementation approaches to machine learning and use cases demonstrating the application of machine learning for failure prediction will be discussed.
