Prognostics and Health Management of Electronics: Fundamentals, Machine Learning, and the Internet of Things, by Prof. Michael Pecht and Dr. Myeongsu Kang, serves as a valuable resource to aid data scientists, engineers, and researchers in fully understanding and applying machine learning, the Internet of Things, and risk assessment to electronic components, products, and systems.

The first version of this book on PHM for electronic systems was written by Prof. Pecht in 2008. This new book of over 800 pages advances the research and practical applications of PHM conducted by the Center for Advanced Life Cycle Engineering’s (CALCE) Prognostics and Health Management (PHM) scholars. This work shows the newly developed methods for identifying anomalies and patterns within large data sets containing multiple parameters, both qualitative and quantitate, to develop real-time, reduced-order modeling for failure prediction. In addition, applications of PHM by CALCE industry partners are presented.
