Smart maintenance for leaders

Smart maintenance means using advanced technologies and data to optimize and streamline the company's maintenance processes. By investing in this skill, a leader can not only understand and apply the latest innovations in the maintenance industry, but also increase company productivity, reduce costs and ensure long-term sustainability.

This smart maintenance course provides a leader with the tools and knowledge needed to navigate the digital era and maximize business reliability and performance.

Target group

The course is aimed at technical managers and people with a leading position in producing companies. The course is also suitable for those who are responsible for maintenance and operational safety, for example in the role of maintenance engineer, maintenance coordinator or maintenance manager. It is also aimed at you who are responsible for and work with overall sustainability, quality and safety issues.


The course consists of three parts.

Part 1

In the first part (w. 12–14) we focus on technology solutions and how these are used to achieve smart maintenance. You will gain a practical understanding of how the technology works and what possibilities and limitations they have. We also describe the basics of predictive maintenance.

Part 2

The second part (w. 15–17) focuses on information needs for smart maintenance and how this can be ensured with technology solutions. You do exercises where you get to define what data and information is needed to plan, prepare, implement and follow up smart maintenance and then identify how you get access to this data.

Part 3

The third part (w. 18–20) addresses how a digitization strategy can be established for the maintenance organization.

The course includes the following elements:

  • the concept of smart maintenance
  • technology solutions for the realization of smart maintenance and its possibilities and limitations
  • maintenance concepts, maintenance strategies and maintenance systems and how these can be realized with the help of technology solutions
  • maintenance's information needs
  • methods for definition and identification of information needs
  • digital transformation and digitization strategies

This course is developed within the project Smart Industry phase 2 and funded by the Swedish Knowledge Foundation (KK-stiftelsen).
