The circular economy allows maintenance to play a central role in the manufacturing industry: it provides companies an opportunity to enhance value for their customers and themselves, as well as to lower environmental impacts. Now, AI and a large amount of data have arrived – additional weapons for maintenance to use to seize this opportunity. However, it is not an easy job to realize this. This talk will present R&D opportunities based on the speaker’s recent experience from collaboration with complex product manufacturers in Sweden. A key takeaway is to take a broader view with the systems perspective in order to identify the gains – not only pains.
