Description

This project focuses on developing innovative concepts to improve the predictability of maintenance and service logistics demand on the one hand, and developing smart concepts of service logistics optimization, supply chain coordination and cooperation on the other hand (see figure below). Research is organized in three work packages. Our contribution is in the first WP aiming to increase the predictability of maintenance (i.e. prevent failures / reduce unnecessary maintenance). For this WP the objective is to develop and validate a predictive maintenance concept for maritime systems, based on modelling the physical failure mechanisms and applying the monitored variation in loads and usage.

The focus of WP1 will be on propulsion systems (diesel engine) and electronic components (e.g. in radar systems).
