Observation: This system is interconnected and dependent of e-Monitoring and e-Maintenance applications, existent and/or in installation inside of a current project, and conditioned by the level of available information and data of the system current, and according to their adoption by the company, recommended by the current project:

¤ Disposition and structuring of available observations to identify a defective component or malfunctioning, systems degradation, number and difficulties of interpretation.

¤ The decision-support system drawn for a complex system; should interpret initial observations and transform them to a succession of complex tests, in reason of the system diagnosing difficulty, according to the patterns and norms of the Company (contractor)) and his suppliers.


¤ Development of structures of tests and verifications of multiple components and subsystems that interact to each other in complex manners.

¤ Development of structure of tests (with the contractor company management team) that lead to a more efficient way to discover the defective component or components, as well as assure a highly precise diagnosis.

¤ Development of editor of wrong diagnosis consequences and frequency. Reasons for diagnosis mistake are numerous. Induction of reasoning process that can be formalized or built-in in a specialist system of help in the process of problem solution, during the execution (development with the contractor company management team).

¤ To develop correctly the requested tests and procedures actions and training.

¤ The advanced training can be implemented efficiently (optionally) using a software tool simulating and providing orientation of the process of solution of problems efficiently. The expectations of such tool are that it guides from the beginning, step by step the user, for the solution process of present problems and transfers from the reasoning process, evaluating whether the procedures are correctly applied. As a second phase, it can be important to evaluate the base of acquisition of the reasoning logic.


Decision-support based on Company procedures and norms, available in the WEB operation interfaces, with distinction of levels and accesses, and updated in real time according to the updating or equipments and procedures modification:

¤ Guides of troubleshooting based on three phases that characterize this training, will be integrated into the simulators:

¤ The discovery phase where the user identifies each element that composes a circuit, fail potential operations and the repair methodology and/or associated maintenance.

¤ A phase of analysis of fail operation " guided " while the user will be capable to confront with the maintenance or adjustment and where each step will be taught by the tool.

¤ A final apprenticeship phase of analysis of fail real operation, where the user is forced to dominate individually and where each action is registered. Analysis of the method used by the user creates a computation that takes into account the time and cost of the different parts activated during the operation.
