The concept of remaining useful life (RUL) is crucial when dealing with mechanical systems. RUL is taken into account in a system through a series of prognostics and the study of stability in a related data series. This paper is focused on a powerful optimal technique in prognosis coming from the Grünwald–Letnikov definition of derivative.
