We work from the perspective of maintenance as a tool for ensuring sustainable growth and providing added value to businesses. Our activity takes an integrated, holistic approach to digital technologies, engineering and economics, providing a strategic framework to support companies during the technological transformation and optimisation of their maintenance processes throughout the entire life cycle of their assets and the entire value chain.

To this end, we offer a multi-technology, integrated and holistic approach to maintenance, working actively on research and on new and emerging technologies in the engineering and management of the operation and maintenance of complex systems.

We are working on methodologies and technologies aimed at:

  • Asset and fleet management: RAMS, reliability and maintainability modelling, risk management, life cycle cost analysis (LCC, LCP), integrated logistics support (ILS) and performance measurement and management
  • Engineering: new materials and failure mechanics, advanced simulation, O&M engineering
  • Digital technology: Industrial AI, Big Data, IIoT, AR/VR, digital twins for O&M and predictive and prescriptive analytics

These lines of work are geared towards solutions applied in areas such as advanced manufacturing, energy transition and sustainable construction and mobility.
