Systems Engineering for Prognostics and Health Management (PHM) Systems C1866

Topics: Quality, Safety & Maintenance

Most complex systems are moving toward a “smart” solution, with automated methods for identifying and diagnosing problems. This course will explore how efficient system scan be designed in an effective manner to ensure that they meet performance requirements. Because predictive maintenance is important to the aerospace industry, this course will address systems engineering (SE), review prognostic health management (PHM), and explain how you can utilize them to obtain a better system. Additionally, it will address requirements management; model-based design; and verification and validation.

Learning Objectives

By attending this course, you will be able to: 

  • Identify basic systems engineering terminology and methods
  • Recognize the fundamentals of PHM systems
  • Summarize why PHM design and development is fundamentally tough in today’s industrial setting
  • Explain how SE can help with PHM design and development

Who Should Attend

This course is designed for engineers in the aviation industry who would benefit from learning how to apply principles associated with systems engineering (SE) and design, verification and validation, model-based design and analysis, and prognostic health management (PHM).


Bachelor of Engineering

You must complete all course contact hours and successfully pass the learning assessment to obtain CEUs.
