International Conference on Maintenance, Condition Monitoring and Diagnostics, and Maintenance Performance Measurement and Management, MCMD 2015 & MPMM 2015
Oulu, Finland. 30 September - 1 October 2015
The Fourth International Conference on Maintenance, Condition Monitoring and Diagnostics, and Maintenance Performance Measurement and Management, MCMD 2015 and MPMM 2015, was organised by the University of Oulu and POHTO - The Institute for Management and Technological Training. The seminar was supported by a variety of Finnish industrial enterprises.
The MCMD 2015 and MPMM 2015 conference surveys the latest developments in maintenance of the process and energy industries, starting from the engineering of production lines. Central themes include condition monitoring and diagnostics as a profit-making factor when improving productivity, quality making ability and operational reliability. The good availability of manufacturing processes, prompt deliveries, high product quality and environmental consciousness are major competitive assets. Reaching these aims requires cooperation between industrial establishments, research institutes and universities. It is important that the most recent research information should be put into practice rapidly and in a suitable form. In addition, an awareness of practical problems will help researchers in targeting their work and receiving new incentives. The present conference can thus be considered useful to all of its participants and to also promote cooperation between persons engaged in this field in different countries.
