Open Access research that is helping to improve educational outcomes for children

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Education, including those researching educational and social practices in curricular subjects. Research in this area seeks to understand the complex influences that increase curricula capacity and engagement by studying how curriculum practices relate to cultural, intellectual and social practices in and out of schools and nurseries.

Research at the School of Education also spans a number of other areas, including inclusive pedagogy, philosophy of education, health and wellbeing within health-related aspects of education (e.g. physical education and sport pedagogy, autism and technology, counselling education, and pedagogies for mental and emotional health), languages education, and other areas.

Abstract

Prognostics aims to improve asset availability through intelligent maintenance actions. Up-to-date remaining useful life predictions enable the optimization of maintenance planning. Verification of prognostics techniques aims to analyze if the prognostics application meets the design requirements. Online prognostics applications depend on the data-gathering hardware architecture to perform correct prognostics predictions. Accordingly, when verifying prognostics requirements compliance, it is necessary to include the effect of hardware failures on prognostics predictions. In this paper we investigate the use of formal verification techniques for the integrated verification of prognostics applications including hardware and software components. Focusing on the probabilistic model-checking approach, a case study from the power industry shows the validity of the proposed framework.
