For naval systems with typically long service lives, high sustainment costs and strict availability requirements, an effective and efficient life cycle management process is very important. In this paper four approaches are discussed to improve that process: physics of failure based predictive maintenance, advanced data analysis, condition based maintenance and maintenance optimization. For all these approaches, understanding of the failure behaviour and quantifying the effects of variations in usage of the system appear to be the key factor for improvements.
