The paper gives a short overview of the enabling tools and technologies available to the maintenance engineer in manufacturing industry. Specific focus is given to the emergence of e-maintenance practices and the introduction of mobile computing devices. Analysis of the main characteristics of the e-maintenance concepts and the associated challenges is provided, highlighting the lack of use of condition-based maintenance strategies. The potential of using ubiquitous computing power in industrial maintenance practice is then examined, followed by an original vision for the adoption of mobile maintenance management solutions. This vision is supported today by the European Integrated Project - DYNAMITE (Dynamic Decisions in Maintenance). This project is concerned with the development of an e-maintenance system that is partially based on web and mobile technologies to manage industrial machinery and assets. Such maintenance activity is a huge cost to European industry. Realistic industrial maintenance scenarios provide the primary focus for the technology being developed in the DYNAMITE Project.
