    Abstract : Modern machinery is expensive and therefore must run at high availability and effectiveness which cannot be achieved without an effective maintenance policy. Condition monitoring, (CM), techniques can be utilised to reduce or arrest the rate of deterioration of a component so increasing operating life. READ MORE

  3. 3. Cost-effective maintenance of railway track geometry : a shift from safety limits to maintenance limits

    Author : Iman Arasteh Khouy; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Drift och underhållsteknik; Operation and Maintenance;

    Abstract : Railway infrastructure is a complex system which comprises different subsystems. Long life span is one of the important aspects of this prime mode of transport. However, the useful life of its assets is highly dependent on the maintenance and renewal strategy used during the assets’ life cycle. READ MORE

  4. 4. On the identification and utilisation of relevant data for applying cost-effective maintenance

    Author : Mirka Kans; Växjö universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Maintenance information systyems; Maintenance decisions; Cost-effective maintenance; Information systems integration; Decision support systems; Industrial engineering and economy; Industriell teknik och ekonomi; Terotechnology; Systemekonomi;

    Abstract : With the global and continuously changing environment of today's companies, competitive strategies of cost minimisation and differentiation, and the ability to use the available resources in a cost-effective way have become important. The major focus should be set on the areas of business where the possibilities for strategic advantages and savings are high, whereas maintenance is one area of business that recently has been considered as an activity contributing efficiently to the companies' strategic objectives of profitability and competitiveness.
