Performing the right maintenance at the right time and, if necessary, replacing components, is essential for making optimal use of your operating resources. Applying the most suitable type of maintenance in the correct proportion requires proper attention and knowledge. The effectiveness and efficiency of the measures taken serve as the barometer. The approach differs for each type of business and is in fact driven by the business strategy.
This course makes use of the information consolidated about maintenance and residual life in the CIGRE Technical Brochures 279 and 358.
