    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

  2. 2. On maintenance optimization for offshore wind farms

    Author : Francois Besnard; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; life cycle cost; optimization; maintenance; maintenance planning; Offshore wind energy; maintenance strategy; maintenance support organization; reliability;

    Abstract : The maintenance cost is known to be an important part of the levelized cost of energy generated by wind parks. Operational costs can be significantly reduced by optimizing decisions for maintenance strategies, maintenance support organization and maintenance planning. READ MORE

  3. 3. Property Maintenance : Concepts and determinants

    Author : Henry Muyingo; Hans Lind; Göran Lindahl; KTH; []
    Keywords : Housing maintenance; property management; real estate; housing companies;

    Abstract : Introduction Strategic property management aims at balancing the question of how the needed space is to be secured, maintained, increased or disposed of in a cost effective manner under a mixture of decisions and actions. In recent years, the interest in building maintenance has increased as more and more of the housing stock built after the Second World War is in need of major renovation. READ MORE

  4. 4. Maintenance related losses : a study at the Swedish National Rail Administration

    Author : Mattias Holmgren; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Kvalitetsteknik; Quality Technology and Management; Drift och underhållsteknik; Operation and Maintenance;

    Abstract : The global competition among companies has lead to higher demands of the production system. Quality has become an important factor for competition. Customer satisfaction depends upon the fulfillment of a number of quality parameters. Two important quality parameters are dependability and safety. READ MORE
