Industrial assets have a number of systems and subsystems, hardware, sensors and software including rotating and sliding parts. It is well known that failure mechanism and degradation behaviour of these parts and subsystems influences life of those systems.

In order that informed decisions are taken by maintenance, reliability and asset management professionals to improve performance and productivity, it is imperative that the behaviour of machine components and sub-systems with regard to the performance of the system, costs and risks associated with various alternatives in maintenance and replacement decisions are better understood. But there are issue’s and challenges in understanding these by maintenance, reliability and asset management professionals.

Maintenance, Reliability and Asset management have become essential areas of concern for many of industries and infrastructure owners, operators and maintainers. This issue will include an overview of the benefits of working within an asset management framework and technologies for balancing costs, risk and performance.
