CONDITION BASED MAINTENANCE (CBM): A plan of maintenance for a system based not upon time intervals but rather upon the actual condition of the system as enabled by the application of usage, diagnostic, and prognostic processes executed on a Health and Usage Monitoring System. HEALTH AND USAGE MONITORING SYSTEM (HUMS): A "smart black box" device installed on a system that acts as an enabler to CBM * Acquires data from vehicle data busses, GPS, sensors, etc. * Turns data into information by executing algorithms to estimate the current health of the system on which it is installed and define the manner in which that system is being used and report this information to AMSAA for analysis and distribution.
