Integrated Intelligent Equipment Health Management System to Support Life Cycle Decisions Considering Environmentally Conscious Production

Vahid Ebrahimipour

Integrated Intelligent Equipment Health Management System (IIEHMS) is a systematic engineering design Framework that includes multi-functional disciplines (such as mechanical, electrical, optical and software engineering, quality assurance, and manufacturing) with their partners and suppliers works together to achieve a green topology plant with respect to life cycle cost. The proposed structural framework is defined as fitness for operation at any time during plant life cycle. Plant life cycle includes the entire spectrum of activities; beginning with the identification of need and extending through plant design and development, production and/or construction, operational use and sustaining maintenance and support, and plant retirement and material disposal.
