Following a series of successful PHM conferences in the past few years, 2017 Prognostics and System Health Management Conference-Harbin (PHM-2017 Harbin) will be held in Harbin, China, from July 9-12, 2017. PHM-2017 Harbin is sponsored by Harbin Institute of Technology (HIT), IEEE Reliability Society, and IEEE Harbin Section. PHM-2017 Harbin will continually provide a premier interdisciplinary forum for researchers, scientists and scholars in the domains of aeronautics and astronautics, energy and power systems, process industries, computers and telecommunications, and industrial automation to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, concerns, challenges, and solutions in PHM. All the accepted papers will be published in IEEE Xplore and indexed by Engineering Index (EI).

Systems design and integration

With the developments of German Industries 4.0, Industrial Internet of the U.S., and China Manufacturing 2025, the global manufacturing industry is facing a crucial transformation. As the systems become more complex, higher standards on reliability and safety are required. The theme of PHM-2017 Harbin is PHM for new industry architecture. At the conference, Industrial Big Data, Internet of Things (IoT), Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS), etc., are part of the main focuses. Researchers and practitioners in academia and related industries are cordially invited to join us.
