The creation, capturing, using and sharing of knowledge is based on data. The rate of data creation, collection, and elicitation through wide range experiments, simulations and measurements is rapidly increasing within Integrated Vehicle Health Management (IVHM). In addition, Knowledge Management (KM), data abstraction, analyses, storage and accessibility challenges persist, resulting in loss of knowledge and increased costs. This growth in the creation of research data, algorithms, technical papers, reports and logs, requires both a strategy and tool to address these challenges. A Data Life Cycle Model (DLCM) ensures the efficient and effective abstraction and management of both data and knowledge outputs. IVHM which depend heavily on high-quality data to perform data-driven, model-based and hybrid computational analysis of asset health. IVHM Centre does not yet have a systematic and coherent approach to its data management. The absence of a DLCM means that valuable knowledge might be lost or is difficult to find. Data visualization is fragmented and done on a project by project basis leading to increased costs. There is insufficient algorithm documentation and communication for easy transition between subsequent researchers and personnel. A systematic review of DLCMs, frameworks, standards and process models pertaining to data- and KM in the context of IVHM, found that there is no DLCM that is consistent with IVHM data and knowledge management requirements. Specifically, there is a need to develop a DLCM based on Open System Architecture for Condition-Based Maintenance framework.
