    Abstract

    In the industry there is a great need for diagnostic tools that are used defining the condition of machinery and proper timing and contents of maintenance actions. Making measurement and diagnosis manually is very time consuming and costly and, therefore, somewhat limited to more expensive machinery. When the price of sensors and processing power has reduced, the need for automation of diagnosis has increased rapidly and consequently the development of automatic diagnostic tools has become the bottle neck in introducing condition based maintenance (CBM) as a means for optimizing maintenance. The definition of the ontology of diagnosis is a means to automate the process of creating automatic diagnostic systems for various kind of machinery and that approach is presented in this paper. The paper also discusses the basic principles of diagnosing the condition of rotating machinery and explains the difficulties in automating this process. The definition of ontology is given together with the explanation of the role of standards and databases in creating the whole approach. Finally the complete structure of the proposed approach is presented.
