The aim of the course is to provide insight, knowledge and skills, within terms, methods and techniques, applied in industrial maintenance development.
After completing the course the students shall be able to:
1. describe the value of maintenance, and relate maintenance activities to their related costs
2. apply simple LCC analysis in order to compare different solutions for establishing dependable production systems
3. perform Root Cause Analysis of dependability weaknesses in a production system
4. analyze and evaluate the maintenance and reliability data from equipment and draw conclusions from the analysis
5. know and describe the differences, advantages and disadvantages of common maintenance concepts
- The added value of maintenance
- Life cycle cost
- Analysis of Maintenance related data
- Concepts for maintenance and dependability
- The economic aspects of maintenance
- Root Cause Analysis
40 credits in engineering/technology and at least 2 years of work experience in full-time from relevant area within industry.
In addition, Swedish course B/Swedish course 3 and English course A/English course 6 are required. For courses given entirely in English exemption is made from the requirement in Swedish course B/Swedish course 3.
Written assignment (INL1), 1 hp, LCC Analysis, examines the learning objective 2, marks Fail (U) or Pass (G)
Written assignment (INL2), 1 hp, Root Cause Analysis, examines the learning objective 3, marks Fail (U) or Pass (G)
Written assignment (INL3), 1 hp, Data Analysis, examines the learning objective 4, marks Fail (U) or Pass (G)
Written examination at home (HEM1), examines the learning objectives 1 and 5, marks Fail (U) or Pass (G)
A student who has a certificate from MDH regarding a disability has the opportunity to submit a request for supportive measures during written examinations or other forms of examination, in accordance with the Rules and Regulations for Examinations at First-cycle and Second-cycle Level at Mälardalen University (2016/0601). It is the examiner who takes decisions on any supportive measures, based on what kind of certificate is issued, and in that case which measures are to be applied.
Suspicions of attempting to deceive in examinations (cheating) are reported to the Vice-Chancellor, in accordance with the Higher Education Ordinance, and are examined by the University’s Disciplinary Board. If the Disciplinary Board considers the student to be guilty of a disciplinary offence, the Board will take a decision on disciplinary action, which will be a warning or suspension.Study guide
