Abstract

On condition maintenance management is gaining general acceptance both in ships as in other domains. This is a natural result given evolution of low cost sensors, statistical methodology, telecommunications, software and superabundance of observational data. In this paper we analyze the effects of digital revolution on the usual maintenance policies and anticipate its consequences on ships maintenance management. Specifically, we try to show that on condition maintenance is, intrinsically, a data driven maintenance policy and the natural solution that results from the convergence of those economic and technological realities. The development of statistical methodology capable of transforming, in real time, those data mountains in useful knowledge is, accomplished routinely using almost free software or, at least, easily accessible resources. The paper identifies and illustrates with real data examples some of the main consequences and issues associated to this new reality and its effects on main maintenance policies and management organizations.
