ISyE Research to Prevent Breakdowns

Full Summary:

Assistant Professor Nagi Gebraeel's research initiative to develop a system for predicting and preventing mechanical breakdowns was recently picked up by KPTV in Portland, Oregon.

Assistant Professor Nagi Gebraeel's research initiative to develop a system for predicting and preventing mechanical breakdowns was recently picked up by KPTV in Portland, Oregon. Gebraeel has designed a system called adaptive prognosis for electronics and manufacturing components that uses electronic sensors to calculate the internal wear in machine parts. His system can be used to predict mechanical failures before they occur, recommending the best economic time to replace fatiguing components. His system can improve not only safety in industries such as aviation but also save in financial and maintenance costs.
