The National Instruments Co. awarded the IMS Center with the "Prognostics Innovation Award" during the LabVIEW Tools Network Awards ceremony at the week long NI conference on August 7th. Receiving the award for the IMS Center was Dr. Edzel Lapira and Mr. David Siegel.
A brief description of the award from the NI website:
Prognostics Innovation Award:
Watchdog Agent Toolkit by the Center for Intelligent Maintenance Systems (IMS)
Prognostics is an important field of study because one of the biggest expenses of large machines is maintenance. The Watchdog Agent Toolkit delivers a set of algorithms in LabVIEW, that allows engineers to predict machine failure and fully understand the health of a machine, in order to reduce costs. It's been used by industrial tool companies such as Hywin to improve their tooling machines and reduce costs. In addition, the work through the IMS Center exemplifies the positive outcomes of university and industry collaboration. IMS Center has formed partnerships with over 30 organizations to including National Instruments, Boeing, GE, and Honeywell, to drive collaboration and envision the future of maintenance.
