The result of a combined effort between the Society for Machinery Failure Prevention Technology (MFPT) and the International Society of Automation (ISA), which held their conferences together in May, 2013, the proceedings are now are available in print format. Focusing on the theme of Sensors and Systems for Reliability, Safety and Affordability, the Joint Conference MFPT 2013 and ISA’s 59th International Instrumentation Symposium reflected the importance of sensing and condition management systems in lowering sustainment costs. The proceedings contain 33 technical papers chosen out of the 120 presented during the various sessions. These papers were organized in various categories: • Aerospace sensors • Health management tools and capabilities • Diagnostics • Wind turbines • Signal analysis • Diagnostics sensors • Thermographic phosphors • Condition based maintenance, Failure Prevention, Prognostics • Wireless sensors • Data analysis • Failure analysis • Systems Engineering and business case analysis As organizations, big and small, better understand the importance of preventive asset health management, more technologies and processes will be developed to respond to the needs and demands of new customers.
