Chapter 2 Advances in Uncertainty Representation and Management for Particle Filtering Applied to Prognostics∗ Marcos Orchard, Gregory Kacprzynski, Kai Goebel, Bhaskar Saha and George Vachtsevanos Abstract Particle filters (PF) have been established as the de facto state of the art in failure prognosis. They combine advantages of the rigors of Bayesian estimation to nonlinear prediction while also providing uncertainty estimates with a given solution.

Suppose that some imperfect measurement z(k) regarding the damage state becomes available at time k = k + p · T . The challenge is to find optimal current damage state to re-initialize the model and/or adjust model parameters so that a calibrated and more accurate prognosis can be established. S. J. 11, it is apparent that the prediction mean has shifted and the confidence bounds on the resulting RUL has less variance than the original (blue prediction). The prediction accuracy improvement would generally mean that a decision to take action based on failure probability will likely reduce lost operational availability over a run-to-failure maintenance plan.
