1.4 Conventions used in this document1.4.1 General
All groups, complex types, simple types, and attribute groups are listed in Annex A. Descriptive informationfor each is provided.
Where there are references to groups, complex types, simple types, and attribute groups within the associatedXML schema orOWLontology(Simica.xsd and Simica.owl), the convention of [name] at [element] is used toindicate where the user can locate the data within either the Simica.xsd or Simica.owl files.
Example: The 1636-2018 download at: https:/lstandards.ieee.orgdownloads indicates the user is to open theSimica.xsd schema at the location provided and find Example for the schema definition.
The namespace prefix “c:”identifies that the type or attribute group associated with this document.

3. Definitions, acronyms, and abbreviations3.1 Definitions
For the purposes of this document, the following terms and definitions apply.TheIEEE Standards DictionaryOnline should be consulted for terms not defined in this clause.2
diagnostic maturation: The process of monitoring diagnostic system predicted versus actual performanceto identify and implement corrective actions. The goal is to enhance diagnostic effectiveness throughout theproduct life cycle. Diagnostic elements that may benefit from the maturation process include (but are notlimited to) diagnostic models, system performance models, test programs, and product design.
ontologies: A formal way to define the structure of knowledge.
system: (A) A collection of entities to be processed by applying a top-down, hierarchical approach(B)Acollection of elements forming a collective,functioning entity (C) A collection of hardware or softwarecomponents necessary for performing a function.

4. Diagnostic maturation
The process of maturing a system diagnostic design begins in the system ‘s conceptual design phase andcontinues throughout the system life cycle.Generally, diagnostic design is demonstrated prior to delivery ofthe first unit to meet the diagnostic and health management requirements that have been levied.However, oncea system is fielded and used in an operational environment,unexpected and unplanned system level designinteractions,operational and environmental stresses, performance characteristics of tests and monitors, andother influences tend to reveal deficiencies in the diagnostic capabilities. When such deficiencies result in asystem readiness/availability or cost of ownership problem, remedial actions shall be taken:
