Special Session XII

Novel Operation and Maintenance Solutions for Complicated Systems

Modern systems tend to be more complicated than ever before, facilitated by novel design concepts and advancements in new technologies such as sensing, material, communication, and systems (or functions) integrity. Operation and Maintenance is to find the most feasible, economical, and easy-to-follow solutions for failure prevention and performance improvement of complicated systems with the assistance of operation state modeling and analysis, failure and reliability analysis with environmental issues, performance estimation and prediction tools and experiment techniques.
There is a surging demand to converge the state-of-the-art solutions on the above aspects and provide feasible thinking to guide performance improvement and profit increase. To this end, this special session is arranged for presenting original research papers dealing with newly emerged Operation and Maintenance solutions of complicated systems to provide innovative ideas to academia and the most recent interesting applications to engineering.
