Development and Application of Vehicle Health Index
Evaluating the health level of vehicles usually involves several factors and often needs to introduce subjective information. This paper presents an approach to combine several performance measures into a composite index for health evaluation. A mathematical method is proposed to estimate the overall performances of vehicles based on the observed performances under multiple measures or criteria. The approach is illustrated using a real-world example.
