    Abstract

    Design for Maintenance (DfM) is an important aspect to consider during planning phases of an infrastructure. Despite its importance in ensuring, for instance, reliability and safety during all the life of an asset, last decades show how it has been often neglected in order to save time, money, materials, resources, etc. The chapter aims to navigate through the most important aspects to consider for a proper DfM. Firstly, an introduction on DfM and transportation infrastructures will be offered. Secondly, a reflection on a major accident occurred to a motorway infrastructure in Italy (Morandi bridge) caused by an apparent lack of maintenance and DfM will be proposed. Lastly, the chapter will discuss the findings and will look into future actions and researches to take in order to prevent disruptions with the adoption of valuable maintenance operations.
