The Diagnosticians’ Dilemma:
Balancing Signals and Context in Electric Drivetrain Diagnostics
In the world of electric drivetrain diagnostics, it’s crucial to strike a balance between measurement techniques and understanding the broader context. While capturing the right signals is undeniably important, it’s only a fraction of the diagnostic process. Context holds the key to unlocking meaningful insights.
Without context, diagnosticians can only draw obvious conclusions from measurements. However, true diagnostic excellence lies in considering the operating state, environment, historical actions, precision maintenance, measurement techniques, positions, accuracy, etc… These elements provide the necessary framework for effective diagnostics.
In fact, diagnosticians must go beyond mere measurements and proactively create possible scenarios by closely examining the context. This approach ensures that suspicions are confirmed through meticulous measurement and analysis. As a result, skilled diagnosticians are distinguished by their ability to think at a system level, encompassing all relevant factors.
Let’s remember that successful diagnostics extend beyond technical expertise alone. It requires a holistic understanding of the system, where context plays a vital role. By embracing this mindset, diagnosticians can uncover deeper insights and drive more accurate and effective solutions.
