    Abstract

    This paper describes an end-to-end Integrated Vehicle
    Health Management (IVHM) development process with a
    strong emphasis on the automation in creating functional
    models from 3D Computer Aided Design (CAD) system’s
    representation, throughout the implementation of this
    process. It has been demonstrated that functional analysis
    enhances the design and development of IVHM but this
    approach is not widely adopted by industry and the research
    community as it carries a significant amount of
    subjectivism. This paper is meant to be a guideline that
    supports the correctness through construction of a functional
    representation for a complex mechatronic system. The
    knowledge encapsulated in the 3D CATIA™ System
    Design environment was linked with the Maintenance
    Aware Design environment (MADe™) with the scope of
    automatically creating functional models of the geometry of
    a system. The entire process is documented step by step and
    it is demonstrated on a laboratory fuel system test rig. The
    paper is part of a larger effort towards an integrated COTS
    toolset for IVHM design. Another objective of the study is
    to identify the relations between the different types of
    knowledge supporting the health management development
    process when used together with the spatial and functional
    dimensions of an asset. The conclusion of this work is that a
    3D CAD model containing the topological representation of
    a complex system can automate the development of the
    functional model of such a system.
