CALCE faculty member Prof. Peter Sandborn was inducted as a Fellow of the PHM Society for his remarkable contributions to the field of life-cycle cost modeling for systems that include prognostics and health management (PHM). Prof. Sandborn’s contributions have been instrumental in building business cases that support the inclusion of PHM within systems, optimize maintenance for systems that include PHM and the optimization of outcome-based contract requirements and metrics when PHM is included in the system. Prof. Sandborn is a member of the executive board of directors in the PHM Society and has actively participated in many of its special tasks and assignments.

Prof. Sandborn earned both his M.S. and Ph.D. in electrical engineering from the University of Michigan, and he became a professor at the University of Maryland in 1998 and associated with CALCE. At CALCE, Prof. Sandborn’s group develops obsolescence-forecasting algorithms and performs strategic design refresh planning and lifetime buy quantity optimization. Prof. Sandborn also performs research in life-cycle cost modeling areas, including maintenance planning and return on investment analysis for the application of PHM to systems, total cost of ownership of electronic parts, transition from tin-lead to lead-free electronics, and general technology tradeoff analysis for electronic systems.

He also serves as director of the Maryland Technology Enterprise Institute (Mtech) and has been recognized for his contributions to the analysis of cost and life-cycle of electronic systems.
