    Abstract

    In the past years, scientific papers appeared about the opportunities offered by new technologies in e- Maintenance context. Indeed, a great number of contributions can be found in literature analyzing and proposing different prospects to improve maintenance processes by leveraging on the e-Maintenance concept and its applications using a myriad of e-technologies. On the other hand, little attention has been paid on the selection and configuration of these technologies based on their economic value for the user. This has rarely been discussed and the present paper wants to provide an initial step to fulfil this gap. The results of the analysis, carried out in companies located in Italy and Finland, are reported in order to compare different situations where an evaluation of the economic value was studied. The examples were selected to be representative and to help opening the discussion on the economic feasibility and business perceptions of this kind of applications.
