LabView can help us predict machine failures before they occur.

A very informative link is to visit ni.com/info and enter nsi1105

What is Vibration Feature Pattern Matching?

A very good explanation is found at

http://zone.ni.com/devzone/cda/tut/p/id/9230

Quoting from the link

“By capturing dynamic measurements from operating machines such as vibration, electrical power, and dynamic pressure; it is possible to extract key component signature features.  With this feature information, it is possible to tabulate specific metrics which drive plant maintenance and production schedules”

Here is an excellent link from Penn State on Machinery prognostics and Condition Monitoring
