Course description

Management of reliability and maintenance data is important for technology development & qualification, project development, and operation & maintenance planning and execution. Data usage domain encompasses production assurance and reliability management, maintenance optimization and technical safety (e.g. SIL). The course gives the participants an introduction to how such data can be achieved and applied in a quality manner in the context of data analytics, digitalization, integrity management, decision support, HSEQ management, etc. The different parts of ISO 14224 will be informed about in the course in relation to the above-mentioned topics. Interfaces with other ISO documents (ISO 20815, ISO/TR 12489, ISO 15663 and ISO 19008) will also be addressed.
