Smart Maintenance

The Future of Industrial Maintenance

The annual cost of maintenance and production disturbances in the Swedish manufacturing industry is more than 100 Billion SEK and the Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) is just above 50%. It is therefore easy to understand the recent increase in attention for the maintenance field, both in industry and academia. 

For example, predictive maintenance is considered one of the most important industrial use cases for enabling industrial digitalization, given the potential business value (impact) and the richness of available data. Similarly, maintenance is of high strategic importance for companies in terms of enabling failure-free and resilient production systems with high levels of automation. 

To meet these demands and develop the future of maintenance in your company, this learning area is about Smart Maintenance – maintenance in digitalized manufacturing!
