Condition monitoring and fault diagnosis for operational equipment are developing and bowing their potential for enhancing the effectiveness and efficiency of maintenance management, including maintenance decision-making. In this thesis, our aim is to model the condition of equipment items subject to condition-monitoring in order to provide a quantitative measure to aid maintenance decision-making. A key ingredient towards dealing with the modelling work is to define the state or condition of the equipment with an appropriate measure and the observed condition monitoring may be a function of the state or condition of the operational equipment concerned. This leads to the two elements that are important in our modelling development; the need to develop a model that describes the system condition subject to its monitoring data and a decision model that is based upon the predicted system condition.
