Teaching maintenance plan development in a learning factory environment

  • The use of learning factories for education in maintenance concepts is limited, despite the important role maintenance plays in the effective operation of organizational assets. A training programme in a learning factory environment is presented where a combination of gamification, classroom training and learning factory applications is used to introduce students to the concepts of maintenance plan development, asset failure characteristics and the costs associated with maintenance decision-making. The programme included a practical task to develop a maintenance plan for different advanced manufacturing machines in a learning factory setting. The programme stretched over a four-day period and demonstrated how learning factories can be effectively utilized to teach management related concepts in an interdisciplinary team context, where participants had no, or very limited, previous exposure to these concepts.
