Large amount of various tools for diagnostics and control cannot guarantee the industrial and maintenance enterprises a good-quality assessment of machinery condition. As a rule, these tools are not unified and lacking of a single database of controlled parameters and results, as well as claimed metrological characteristics, also, often, the producers provide no maintenance services.
As a result, only one third of an enterprise’s control tools is actually operating. However, one more problem exists: to get some practical effect from the diagnostic and control results they should be available to all management levels.
In order to determine equipment state in technical field a few systems and devices were analyzed, in particular.
The known analogs have one main disadvantage – narrow functionality which cannot provide full diagnostics of EMU-train equipment and leads to considerable effect of human factor on the results of condition assessment.
The specified problems’ solution can be reached through condition monitoring and creation of automated control systems.
