A relevantly defined operational strategy has decisive influence from the point of view of the ability to maintain and improve reliability and safety as well as from the point of view of maintaining manufacturing quality. The paper presents proposal of approach of implementing pro-active operation. Particular attention is paid to the issues of selection and adaptation of the methods of diagnosing the low-energy phases of defect development as well as use of a posteriori diagnostic information and application of Proportional Hazards Model (PHM) in this tasks. Attention is paid to the importance of technical risk analysis.
