    This chapter addresses the development and application of predictive
    maintenance concepts for several types of assets, following two
    approaches: (1) detection and prediction of failures based on (realtime)
    monitoring the health or condition of the systems, and (2)
    prediction of failures (prognostics) using physical failure models and
    monitoring of loads or usage. Firstly, several challenges in the field
    of predictive maintenance are presented. These challenges will be
    addressed by the methods and tools discussed in the remainder of
    the chapter. Both the structural health monitoring methods and the
    prognostic concepts presented are based on a thorough understanding
    of the system and physical failure behaviour. After discussing the
    approaches for monitoring and prognostics, a series of decision support
    tools is presented. As a large number of methods and techniques are
    available, the selection of the most suitable method, as well as the critical
    parts in a system, is a challenging task. The presented tools assist in this
    selection process. Finally, the practical implementation of the presented
    approaches is discussed by showing a number of case studies in different
    sectors of industry.
