Article
Full-text available
Modern businesses are obligated to conform to regulations to prevent physical injuries and ill health for anyone present on a site under their responsibility, such as customers, employees and visitors. Safety officers (SOs) are engineers, who perform site audits to businesses, record observations regarding possible safety issues and make appropriat...
Article
Haptic prohibition is one of the most common limitations when interacting with museum artefacts. This restriction aims quite logically at preventing damages while safeguarding the integrity of the cultural reserve, which is primarily characterised by its uniqueness. Nevertheless, in cases where museum visitors are visually impaired, the inability t...
Article
Disaster risk management of movable and immovable cultural heritage is a highly significant research topic. In this work, we present a pipeline for 3D digitisation, segmentation and annotation of large scale urban areas in order to produce data that can be exploited in disaster management simulators (e.g fire spreading, crowd movement, firefighting...
Chapter
ESTIA is a research and innovation project that aspires to develop a comprehensive platform allowing the forecast, detection and management of incidents that are related with the risk of structural fires within Cultural Heritage (CH) settlements and sites. ESTIA aims to (a) enhance the management and preservation of CH, (b) limit the risks of fire...
Article
Production and industrial engineering are domains that increasingly require a sophisticated and multidisciplinary set of skills. As modern educational mechanisms shift towards more advanced patterns of remote and asynchronous training, learning objects have emerged as an ideal application field for monitoring and evaluating the consumption of bette...
Article
Full-text available
In recent years, the need for renewable and sustainable energy is greater than ever before. Wind turbines in a variety of sizes, appear in every available area and participate in our effort to reverse the energy crisis. However, these complex electromechan ical systems are defined by low availability and substantial downtime periods. The LCOEs and...
Article
Full-text available
Industrial Cyber-Physical Systems have benefitted substantially from the introduction of a range of technology enablers. These include web-based and semantic computing, ubiquitous sensing, internet of things (IoT) with multi-connectivity, advanced computing architectures and digital platforms, coupled with edge or cloud side data management and ana...
Article
Full-text available
Maintenance management and engineering practice has progressed to adopt approaches which aim to reach maintenance decisions not by means of pre-specified plans and recommendations but increasingly on the basis of best contextually relevant available information and knowledge, all considered against stated objectives. Different methods for automatin...
Article
Full-text available
Purpose Field expertise in industry is often poorly recorded and unexploited. The purpose of this paper is to introduce a methodology and tool that incorporates a knowledge validation loop to leverage upon human-contributed field observations in industrial maintenance management. Starting from a failure mode, effects and criticality analysis (FMECA...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Acting upon the data involved in typical diagnostics and prognostics tasks is often confounded by the complexity of the corresponding situation and needs to take into account domain-specific or even installation-specific knowledge considerations. While domain knowledge is often captured in various forms, such as is typically done in Fault Modes, Ef...
Article
The maintenance management function requires staff to possess a truly multidisciplinary set of skills. This includes competencies from engineering and information technology to health and safety, management and finance, while also taking into account the normative and legislative issues. This body of knowledge is rarely readily available within a s...
Conference Paper
Mobile learning is a powerful addition to the toolset offered by e-Learning solutions. It can extend current e-Learning benefits to provide support and training everywhere, anytime and to anyone registered to have access and with affordable costs. Mobile devices with substantial computational, networking and storage capabilities are ubiquitous toda...
Conference Paper
This paper presents an analysis of the potential and a methodology for handling context events and adaptations in maintenance services. A significant number of industrial IT systems employ data models and service frameworks whose design specifications where drafted on the basis of functional requirements for non context-aware systems. Such systems...
Chapter
Full-text available
Systematic and robust condition monitoring of crucial equipment is the cornerstone of any successful preventive maintenance policy in the industrial environment. Recent advances in low-cost wireless sensor network (WSN) technologies and products indicate a promising future for a cost-effective, wider and more permanent deployment of a distributed s...
Conference Paper
The rapid technological progress in the domains of wireless sensor networks, mobile application development and computational intelligence has fueled the construction of “smart” environments in both domestic and industrial settings. Such environments are equipped with a wide range of sensors, identification tags and interaction devices, capable of...

Article
Full-text available
Industrial Maintenance is seeking to enhance the efficiency of asset usage according to multiple criteria and constraints. Its implementation is facilitated by the application of a range of enabling technologies, termed in this context as e-Maintenance. Integrated e-Maintenance solutions can support a multitude of industrial maintenance procedures,...
Conference Paper
Industrial asset lifecycle management is facing pressing demands to rationalize asset usage in parallel with meeting production, quality, safety, environment and cost-efficiency constraints. The introduction of enabling technologies, within an e-Maintenance framework is a significant contributor to this end. Among the key relevant technological fac...
Article
A significant challenge for Maintenance Management professionals is related to the need for them to possess a truly multi-disciplinary set of competencies. This paper presents an analysis of Maintenance Management training and competence assessment requirements, including results of a user survey conducted in EU countries. On the basis of this, a m...
Article
Full-text available
The Maintenance Management profession requires a truly multidisciplinary set of skills. Higher education courses do not offer the necessary body of knowledge in a single course. Maintenance engineering training is offered by some postgraduate & vocational training courses. These often target specialized aspects of Maintenance skills. An important h...
Chapter
