Exam (5 tasks, 6 points per task): estimation scale 0-5, which correspond to 0-30 points. Training: each exercise graded on a pass - fail. Participation in lectures and training: if there is no more than 3 absences total, so the points given in the exam added 6 points. The condition is that the student has received the exam at least 9 points.


The student is able to apply Reliability Centred Maintenance (RCM) analysis in a systematic evaluation approach for developing and optimizing a maintenance programme (which consists of Corrective, Time Based and Condition Based maintenance).
