Selection of appropriate maintenance actions and strategies for preventive maintenance depends on our ability to accurately predict component deterioration, and its impact on overall system performance. The ability to predict component and system behavior under uncertainty depends on the selection of appropriate modeling methodologies that allow decision-makers to represent the complex system interactions at required fidelity and capture the impact of component deterioration or failure on overall system performance. Another important factor affecting the selection of an appropriate modeling framework is the performance metric or objective function used to monitor the performance of maintenance plans. In most cases, selection of appropriate modeling tools and metrics is key to developing successful predictive maintenance systems.
