Annual Conference of the PHM Society

The Annual Conference of the PHM Society intends to bring together the global community of PHM experts from industry, academia, and government in diverse application areas such as energy, aerospace, transportation, automotive, and industrial automation.

For years, the field of PHM was represented under a variety of banners, including aerospace, reliability, failure analysis and prevention, mechanical engineering, and others. Nevertheless, PHM is broader than any single field of engineering. We established the PHM Society in order to unite the fragmented PHM community and to establish PHM as a legitimate scientific and engineering discipline that draws from electrical, electronics, mechanical, civil, and chemical engineering, computer and materials science, reliability, test and measurement, artificial intelligence, physics, and economics.

The PHM conference provides a venue for high-quality archival publications that are reviewed by a panel of experts in the field. Authors retain copyright in their work through a Creative Commons License while allowing the PHM Society to distribute their work broadly through the internet. As a result, publications reach the entire world for free and without access restrictions.
