Machines are the heart of most industries. By ensuring the health of machines, one could easily increase the company revenue and eliminates any safety threat related to machinery catastrophic failures. In condition monitoring (CM), questions often arise during decision making time whether the machine is still safe to run or not? Traditional CM approach depends heavily on human interpretation of results whereby decision is made solely based on the individual experience and knowledge about the

The advent of artificial intelligence (AI) and automated ways for decision making in CM provides a more objective and unbiased approach for CM industry and has become a topic of interest in the recent years. This paper reviews the techniques used for automated decision making in CM with emphasis given on Dempster-Shafer (D-S) evident theory and other basic probability assignment (BPA) techniques such as support vector machine (SVM) and etc.
