Areas of expertise

  • Throughlife Engineering Services


Agusmian Partogi Ompusunggu is an experienced engineer with industrial backgrounds and with broad technical expertise in the areas of (i) Maintenance Systems, (ii) Prognostics and Health Management (PHM) Systems Development, (iii) Smart Sensing/ IoT for Condition & In-Process Monitoring, (iv) Dynamics/Vibration Analysis of Rotating Machines, (v) Industrial Data Analytics/Applied Artificial Intelligence (AI), (vi) Contact Mechanics & Tribology, and (vii) Additive Manufacturing.

He holds PhD in condition monitoring and prognostics of automotive critical components from KU Leuven, Belgium. He earned a BEng and a MEng both in Mechanical Engineering from ITB, Indonesia, with the focus on the flexible rotor-shaft system dynamics and error analysis of a frequency response function (FRF) obtained from an impact hammer testing. 

Dr Ompusunggu recently joined Cranfield in February 2022 as a Senior Lecturer in Maintenance and IoT. Prior to joining Cranfield University, he was a senior research engineer and project leader at Flanders Make vzw, Belgium, an R&D centre bridging academic and industrial researches. Therein, Dr Ompusunggu performed industry-driven research and development (R&D) projects in collaboration with local and abroad research institutes, as well as various high tech multi-national companies. Besides, he led R&D projects with different teams consisting of up to 6 experienced research & application engineers with MSc or/and PhD degree.

Research opportunities

I am currently recruiting for PhD students and post-docs in the three main areas of (1) Zero-downtime high-value critical assets, (2) Zero-defect manufacturing, and (3) Circular economy. 

Sub-areas of interest are (i) Value-driven maintenance & asset management strategy, (ii) IoT sensors/devices & data analytics algorithms for condition monitoring & manufacturing (in-process) monitoring, (iii) Prognostics and Health Management (PHM) systems & digital twin for Predictive Maintenance (PdM) of high value assets, (iv) Physics of failure of critical components/ (sub)-systems and its manifestation to the system's responses, (v) Vibration signal analysis of rotating machines, (vi) Physics-informed machine learning algorithm development for maintenance or other engineering applications. 

Do not hesitate to get in contact if you are interested in pursuing a PhD or doing further a post-doc research in one of those areas.

Current activities

Dr Ompusunggu is a Senior Lecturer in Maintenance and IoT, based in the Centre for Life-cycle Engineering and Management (CLEM). Currently, he is the leaders of two course modules, namely (iMaintenance Planning and Control, and (iiThrough-life Business Models & Servitization. Besides, he is also involved in supervising of several group projects and MSc Theses.

As a new starter at Cranfield who has spent most of his professional career in Belgium, he is currently establishing his academic and industrial networking in the UK.
