Abstract : Automated screening of machinery problems and their effect on machinery health and life expectancy, is an achievable and cost effective goal. 'Expert' computer systems with automatic screening, and operator interface will enhance this decision making process. This discussion includes: (1) the development of a 'smart' computer aided analysis system and our proposed 'expert' system, (2) a set of hierarchical production rules for machinery vibration analysis; and (3) a tabulated Vibration Diagnostic Guide. Keywords: Patterns; Structureborne noise; Acceleration; Velocity; Shaft rate series; Rotating machinery; Residual imbalance; Mass imbalance; Machine resonance; System resonance; Matrix; History; Spectra; Average files; Baseline; Continuum; Cepstrum; Combing; Coupling(Interaction).
