HUMS2017 - An established international conference featuring health (condition) and usage monitoring techniques and technologies for mechanical plant, land vehicles, marine vehicles, helicopters and fixed wing aircraft.
Increasingly, mechanical devices whether fixed systems, land vehicles, marine vehicles (including submarines) or aircraft (including helicopters), are being managed using various Condition Monitoring (CM) or Condition-Based Maintenance (CBM) approaches. All these approaches rely on health (condition) and usage monitoring systems and are most suited to ensuring availability, reliability and safety of critical and high-value assets.
The 10th DST Group International Conference on Health & Usage Monitoring (HUMS2017) will be held in conjunction with the 2017 Australian International Airshow and the 17th Australian International Aerospace Congress commencing in the last week of February 2017. Details will be added to our website as they are decided. The format will be similar to that used in recent years with 2 days of presentations at the Congress (Melbourne Cricket Ground) on Monday 27th and Tuesday 28th February, followed by technology presentations and day visits to the airshow on Wednesday 1st March or Thursday 2nd March.
As usual in recent times, we will be using a broad definition of HUMS covering all Health and Usage Management regimes and not restricted to aircraft.
The HUMS2017 Chair will be Dr Wenyi Wang from DST Group.
