This introductory textbook links theory with practice using real illustrative cases involving products, plants and infrastructures and exposes the student to the evolutionary trends in maintenance.
- Provides an interdisciplinary approach which links, engineering, science, technology, mathematical modelling, data collection and analysis, economics and management
- Blends theory with practice illustrated through examples relating to products, plants and infrastructures
- Focuses on concepts, tools and techniques
- Identifies the special management requirements of various engineered objects (products, plants, and infrastructures)
