An Expert System is a software program that simulates the thought process of experts. The addition of an expert system to a machinery monitoring system provides a diagnostic monitoring system that is easier to use and understand. This paper describes a system that automatically analyzes the data collected by an online machinery monitoring system. It examines the system architecture required to add intelligent diagnostic capabilities to the monitoring system as well as the data necessary for adequate diagnosis. An example of the system’s operation is also presented.
