Determining a Suitable Maintenance Measure for Gentelligent Components Using Case-Based Reasoning

Authors: M. Winkens, P. Nyhuis


Components with sensory properties such as gentelligent components developed at the Collaborative Research Centre 653 offer a new angle in terms of the full utilization of the remaining service life as well as preventive maintenance. The developed methodology of component status driven maintenance analyzes the stress data obtained during the component's useful life and on the basis of this knowledge assesses the type of maintenance required in this case. The procedure is derived from the case-based reasoning method and will be explained in detail. The method's functionality is demonstrated with real-life data obtained during test runs of a racing car prototype.

Keywords: Preventive Maintenance, Case based reasoning, Gentelligent Components
