Longitudinal and time-to-event models
The idea is to use the vibration readings together with the theory of Vibrational Analysis to probabilistically model bearing failure in pumps, and use this to perform preventative maintenance prior to a costly failure during operation. A model and decision rule based on this dataset was published by C-MORE researchers, Sundin et al . This thesis takes another look at this dataset and carefully retraces the steps from Sundin et al. to assess the method, examine the assumptions and construct and fit alternative models.
