Abstract

Maintenance training and educational activities are increasingly exploiting technological innovations. Desktop and web-based e-learning applications offer academics and industrialists new tools to raise maintenance-related knowledge and competence. One recent initiative in this direction is the iLearn2Main project. The project employs e-learning technologies, offering customized maintenance management training, while facilitating the standardisation of competencies assessment and learning evaluation. The maintenance curriculum was designed by taking into account competence requirements for maintenance management professionals and a user survey across several EU countries. This paper provides an overview of the iLearn2Main development and system.
