This paper describes the growing need for a novel approach to a Condition Monitoring Database Management System (CMDBMS). Through the study of a condition monitoring case and the examination of commonly used maintenance management systems, the needs of this system have been identified. From the case study, it has been found that to obtain maintenance information a CMDBMS requires capabilities including data organization, data processing and data collection information. However, existing systems, which are used in the maintenance community only have some of the capabilities and hence provide limited assistance for maintenance activity. Therefore, a novel approach to a CMDBMS has been suggested to meet the needs of condition monitoring data management.
