Day 1 of 2

Importing Data and Processing Data

Objective: Bring data into MATLAB and organize it for analysis, including handling missing values. Process raw imported data by extracting and manipulating portions of data.

  • Store data using MATLAB data types
  • Import with datastores
  • Process data with missing elements
  • Process big data with tall arrays

Finding Natural Patterns in Data

Objective: Use unsupervised learning techniques to group observations based on a set of condition indicators and discover natural patterns in a data set.

  • Find natural clusters within data
  • Perform dimensionality reduction
  • Evaluate and interpret clusters within data
  • Anomaly Detection

Building Classification Models

Objective: Use supervised learning techniques to perform predictive modelling for classification problems. Evaluate the accuracy of a predictive model.

  • Classify with the Classification Learner app
  • Train classification models from labeled data
  • Validate trained classification models
  • Improve performance with hyperparameter optimization

Day 2 of 2

Exploring and Analyzing Signals

Objective: Interactively explore and visualize signal processing features in data.

  • Import, visualize, and browse signals to gain insights
  • Make measurements on signals
  • Compare multiple signals in the time and frequency domains
  • Perform interactive spectral analysis
  • Extract regions of interest
  • Generate MATLAB scripts for automation

Preprocessing Signals to Improve Data Set Quality and Generate Features

Objective: Learn techniques to clean signal sets with operations such as resampling, removing outliers, and filling gaps. Interactively generate and rank features.

  • Use resampling to handle nonuniformly sampled signals
  • Fill gaps in uniformly sampled signals
  • Perform resampling to ensure common time base across signals
  • Use the Signal Analyzer app to design and apply filters
  • Use File Ensemble Datastore to import data
  • Use the Diagnostic Feature Designer app to automatically generate and rank features
  • Perform machinery diagnosis using envelope spectrum
  • Locate outliers and replace with acceptable samples
  • Detect changepoints and perform automatic signal segmentation

Estimating Time to Failure

Objective: Explore data to identify features and train decision models to predict remaining useful life.

  • Select condition indicators
  • Use lifespan data to estimate remaining useful life using survival models
  • Use run-to-threshold data to estimate remaining useful life using degradation models
  • Use run-to-failure data to estimate remaining useful life using similarity models
