Learning outcomes

  • understand and define the "maintenance" function in an industrial context;
  • understand how maintenance may contribute on performance of the production;
  • recognize the principles of maintenance policies and RAMS (reliability, availability, maintenability and safety);
  • define key performance indicators for maintenance.

Contribution to skills profile for civil engineers

  • Demonstrate expertise and versatility in the sciences and technology
  • Adopt an applied scientific approach
  • Master scientific and technical communication
  • Practice interpersonal communication appropriate to each context
  • Be a critical, reflexive and independent professional
  • Be a responsible person, in step with the stakes of society
  • Content

    maintenance and RAMS (reliability, availability, maintenability and safety); terminology; maintenance organisation; reliability of electronic systems, mechanical systems and structures. Some case studies are defined with respect of the specialization of the students.

    Evaluations

    1st examination session assessment and weighting

    Oral  examination. Maximal length: 2 hours. Students have to present and to comment a scientific paper (case study in relation with their specialization) that has been discussed during the course. Their understanding of the principles exposed during the oral course is verified during the discussion.
