Digitization for Smart Maintenance: opportunities & challenges

Activity: Talk or presentationInvited talk


The increasing levels of digitization in the maritime world offer a lot of opportunities to improve ship maintenance processes. Installations and systems nowadays contain large numbers of sensors, that generate data on how the systems are operated, and potentially on their current condition. However, just collecting this type of data is not sufficient to support maintenance decisions. Also advanced models, either physics-based or data-driven, combined with a certain amount of domain and system knowledge is required. In this presentation, the challenges encountered in the collection and processing of (sensor) data for Smart Maintenance purposes will be discussed. Also solution directions will be presented, using a number of specific cases and examples from the Ministry of Defence.
