The goal of the course is to develop a basic understanding of central aspects, principles, methods and tools related to the management of operations and maintenance of advanced, complex and integrated machines, equipment, products, systems and to apply the knowledge in a practical industrial setting. The course will describe central factors and methods used to optimize activities in design and development, installation and commissioning, operations and maintenance, removal with respect to costs, profits, and acceptable risk level for health, safety and environment (HSE), as well as investments. Common operation and maintenance standards, maintenance engineering tools and techniques, as well as condition monitoring maintenance management will be presented and discussed. Furthermore, the course will cover predictive maintenance management and the basic principles and methods used in condition monitoring of rotating machinery, piping, pressure vessels and load bearing structures.
One or several project report shall be prepared with a theme in maintenance engineering management. The context will be on offshore technology (as for example oil and gas platforms or offshore wind farms). [-]
