    This paper reports on the development of a wear prediction model based on stochastic filtering and hidden Markov theory.It is assumed that observations at discrete time points are available such as metal concentrations from oil-based monitoring, which are related to the true underlying state of the system which is unobservable.The system state is represented by a generic term of wear which is modelled by a continuous hidden Markov Chain using a Beta distribution.We formulated a recursive model to predict the current and future system state given past observed monitoring information to date.The model is useful to wear-based monitoring such as oil analysis. Numerical examples are presented in the paper based on simulated and real data.
