Costs associated to unscheduled and excessively prudent maintenance can contribute significantly to an airline's expenditure. Due to the complex nature of aviation related operations, reliability practices have been limited. In an attempt to improve component reliability, i.e. reduce maintenance-related costs, a new strategy was proposed which...

Changing market dynamics make that mining companies need to increase their equipment utilization and use their equipment more effectively. The growing availability of data from mining equipment and mining operations enables the use of data analytics to achieve that goal. This thesis explores the potential of data analytics and machine learning...

The newest generation of aircraft has seen a strong increase in sensor data generated on-board. The available data has the potential to indicate the health state of individual components based on which their maintenance requirements can be determined, a maintenance strategy called Condition Based Maintenance. Predictive Maintenance is a specific...

Modern refineries typically use a high number of sensors that generate an enormous amount of data about the condition of the plants. This generated data can be used to perform predictive maintenance, an approach to predict impending failures and mitigate downtime in refineries. This research analyzes the scalability of machine learning methods...

This study examines Gas Path Analysis (GPA) as a method for the predictive maintenance of the Honeywell 331-500 Auxiliary Power Unit (APU). The 331-500 is used on the Boeing 777 and is susceptible to a sudden failure during operation due to the release of a first stage turbine blade. Investigations found the failure mechanisms of the blade...

In this day and age, failure of railway switches is managed using preventive and corrective maintenance, not predictive maintenance. These maintenance methods may allow for failure, where such a feailure could have been predicted. To combat this issue, this paper proposes a real-time predictive maintenance framework, which can identify the...

Global and local aviation traffic is growing while economic and performance pressures on the industry are increasing. As a consequence, airlines try to maximise their fleet utilization. Airline operators and Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) providers therefore require as much insight as possible in factors affecting component reliability...

Wind power is the fastest-growing energy source and the offshore wind industry is expected to grow by over 80 GW through 2024. There is a need to reduce all associated costs to be competitive in a market that might be fully subsidy-free soon. Adapting a predictive or condition-based maintenance strategy can help in reducing O&M costs, as it...
