Fault diagnosis and prognosis in mechanical systems have been researched and developed in the last few decades at a very rapid rate. However, owing to the high complexity of machine centers, research on improving the accuracy and reliability of fault diagnosis and prognosis via data mining remains a prominent issue in this field. This study investigates fault diagnosis and prognosis in machine centers based on data mining approaches to formulate a systematic approach and obtain knowledge for predictive maintenance in Industry 4.0 era. We introduce a system framework based on Industry 4.0 concepts, which includes the process of fault analysis and treatment for predictive maintenance in machine centers. The framework includes five modules: sensor selection and data acquisition module, data preprocessing module, data mining module, decision support module, and maintenance implementation module. Furthermore, a case study is presented to illustrate the application of the data mining methods for fault diagnosis and prognosis in machine centers as an Industry 4.0 scenario.
