Condition Monitoring Society of India (CMSI) is a non-profit professional body and it was established in the year 2003 by a team of scientists, academicians, engineers and maintenance practitioners with an intention to promote and guide Indian industry towards self-reliance and improved productivity through the application and management of condition based maintenance strategies. The society also intends to be a common platform for condition monitoring professionals to share their experiences and expertise. The society has basically three different types of memberships. Individuals can become life members, Institutions/establishments can enrol as life Institutional members and students of Engineering / Science colleges can become annual members. Recently, CMSI introduced Honorary Fellows and Life Fellows.
To fulfil its objectives, the society conducts National/International Conferences, Workshops, Seminars and Short Term Courses. The events conducted so far include National Conferences (NCCM-2006, NCCM- 2009, NCM-2011, NCCM-2012, NCCM-2013, NCCM-2014 and NCCM-2015) with lead taken by NSTL, a premier DRDO laboratory; a 4-day short term course on Condition Based Maintenance (CBM-2007), a 5-day course sponsored by AICTE-ISTE in 2009 and International Conferences on Condition Monitoring (ICCM-2011and ICCM-2016). These conferences brought out peer-reviewed proceedings of technical papers presented in the conferences. The Society organises an endowment lecture, every year since 2012, that is delivered by eminent experts. All these programs conducted by CMSI were very well attended and highly appreciated. Apart from these activities, a number of workshops and annual technical meets were organised by the society and its local chapters. It also publishes a newsletter ‘MONITOR’ to keep its members abreast of the developments and advances in all the facets of condition monitoring.
