Smart Maintenance Assessment - SMASh

The major effect goal of the SMASh project is to enable digitalization of the Swedish manufacturing industry. Maintenance organizations are expected to have a key role in securing the robustness and efficiency required for full implementation of digital technologies in production. Therefore, the implementation of Smart Maintenance is important for manufacturing companies in order to fulfil their vision of failure-free production. The main idea is to develop a Smart Maintenance Assessment (SMA) tool for benchmarking of maintenance organizations within and across companies. Such a tool will help organizations to implement Smart Maintenance through extended collaboration within the maintenance community. There are similar tools in other areas, such as quality management. However, the few existing tools within the maintenance community have shortages, e.g. the lack of digitalization focus. A consortium including continuous and discrete manufacturers, as well as service providers and major academic partners, will collaborate on developing the tool and validate it using advanced statistical methods on large industrial data sets.
