SDPC 2017 - Sensing, Diagnostics, Prognostics and Control Conference

The international conference on Sensing, Diagnostics, Prognostics and Control was held in Shanghai, China, on August 16-18, 2017. The conference was a joint effort by Shanghai Aircraft Customer Service Corporation, Chongqing Technology and Business University, Carleton University, IEEE Reliability Society, and the International Society of Measurement, Management and Maintenance. The keynote speakers at the conference were Prof. Carlos Guedes Soares of Instituto Superior Técnico, Universidade de Lisboa, Dr. Fu-Kuo Chang, Stanford University and Prof. Michael Pecht of CALCE, University of Maryland.

Prof. Michael Pecht’s keynote was on the topic “Prognostics-Based Qualification for Electronics Components and Systems”. Prof. Pecht stressed on the point that more and more electronic devices and products are passing qualification tests, but are failing in the field, resulting in huge losses to their respective companies. A key problem is the standards and the approaches specified in the standards. Prof Pecht then discussed an alternative fusion approach that combine physics of failure with data-analytics using machine learning.

The Center for Advanced Life Cycle Engineering (CALCE), the largest electronic products and systems research center focused on electronics reliability, is dedicated to providing a knowledge and resource base to support the development of competitive electronic components, products, and systems.
