VIBEX: An expert system for vibration fault diagnosis of rotating machinery using decision tree and decision table
Yang, Bo-Suk, Lim, Dong Soo, & Tan, Andy C. C. (2005) VIBEX: An expert system for vibration fault diagnosis of rotating machinery using decision tree and decision table. Expert Systems with Applications, 28(4), pp. 735-742.
This paper proposes an expert system called VIBEX (VIBration EXpert) to aid plant operators in diagnosing the cause of abnormal vibration for rotating machinery. In order to automatize the diagnosis, a decision table based on the cause-symptom matrix is used as a probabilistic method for diagnosing abnormal vibration. Also a decision tree is used as the acquisition of structured knowledge in the form of concepts is introduced to build a knowledge base which is indispensable for vibration expert systems. The decision tree is a technique used for building knowledge-based systems by the inductive inference from examples and plays a role itself as a vibration diagnostic tool. The proposed system has been successfully implemented on Microsoft Windows environment and is written in Microsoft Visual Basic and Visual CCC. To validate the system performance, the diagnostic system was tested with some examples using the two diagnostic methods.
