Objectives and Approach

Monitoring and diagnosis systems (M&D) for technical systems, such as industrial processes or plants, are usually built from scratch. As many of the tools employed are frequently used in all sorts of M&D, and as most of these systems have common structural characteristics, this conventional approach leads to an enormously wasteful duplication of effort in design, testing and implementation.

The TOPMUSS project aims to relieve M&D developers of the need to keep re-inventing the wheel. The goal of TOPMUSS is to design and create an applications-specific high level CASE (computer-aided software engineering) development system for designing and testing specific applications. The M&D development system will consist of the following main building-blocks:

Progress and Results

With the TOPMUSS toolbox, it is possible to assess the feasibility of a planned multi-sensorial M&D task. Prototyping, testing and validating M&D systems before they are actually implemented is easy. Through the use of the toolbox the M&D systems will become more complete, more reliable and more dependable.

There are several possible uses of the toolbox:

All the partners involved in this project plan to use TOPMUSS results in-house for the various reasons mentioned above. It is intended to market the toolbox.
