Maintenance for Production Performance 5 Credits

With a starting point in the concept of dependability this course offers a holistic view on maintenance development. One of its purposes is to help you motivate a maintenance strategy to develop your company’s production performance. We will apply different types of simulation to experience the dynamics of maintenance strategies and their consequences to production.

Course Contents

The development of maintenance management is significant for improving the production performance. In the course, benefits from improving maintenance management are analyzed in different exercises. In the era of knowledge intensive- and innovative production development we also explore the application of different advanced simulation tools for developing maintenance. And, based on the study of a maintenance culture model we discuss together and individually develop a strategy of improvement.

The course includes the following elements:
- Maintenance terminology
- Introduction to different tactical choices of how to manage physical assets, e.g. corrective maintenance, preventive maintenance, and condition-based maintenance
