Intelligent Maintenance Systems

General Overview

The Center for Intelligent Maintenance Systems (IMS) was established in 2001 as a National Science Foundation Industry/University Cooperative Research Center (I/UCRC). The vision for the center is to enable products and systems to achieve, and sustain, near-zero breakdown performance, and ultimately transform the traditional maintenance practices of “fail and fix” to a “predict and prevent” methodology. The center is focused on frontier technologies in embedded and remote monitoring, prognostics, and intelligent decision support tools.
