Life Cycle Management System, Lifecon LMS: Technical Summary: Lifecon Deliverable D2.1

Asko Sarja

Research output: Book/ReportReport


Current goal and trend in all areas of mechanical industry as well as in building and civil engineering is the socially, economically, ecologically and culturally sustainable development. A technical approach for this objective is called Lifetime Engineering (also called Life Cycle Engineering). Integrated lifetime management and maintenance planning includes continuous condition assessment, predictive modelling of performance, durability and reliability of the facility, maintenance and repair planning and decision-making procedure regarding alternative maintenance and repair actions. The Lifecon LMS belongs to the group of integrated lifetime management and maintenance planning. It is practically oriented and respects the principles applied by most European public authorities as well as by private owners or owner organisations. The main innovative aspect of Lifecon LMS is a delivery of an open and generic European model of an integrated and predictive Life Cycle Maintenance and Management Planning System (LMS) that - facilitates the change of the facility maintenance and management from a reactive approach into a predictive approach - works on life cycle principle - includes following aspects of sustainable and conscious development: human requirements (usability, safety, health and comfort), life cycle economy, life cycle ecology and cultural requirements.
