This module enables you to develop the future of maintenance in your factory!
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.
Given this background, industry and academia jointly developed the concept of Smart Maintenance to provide clarity and requirements on maintenance in digitalized manufacturing. Smart Maintenance is defined as “an organizational design for maintenance in digitalized manufacturing” and consists of four core dimensions: data-driven decision-making; human capital resource; internal integration; and external integration. It has also been shown that a high level of Smart Maintenance is necessary (critical, essential) for achieving a high level of maintenance performance.
The module is a mixture of self-study, webinars, and cross-company exercises.
