Abstract

Maintenance operations include a variety of risks, which could be reduced through rehearsal. In addition, task analysis and planning could play an important role in managing maintenance safety. Virtual reality and virtual environments can be used both for task analysis and task planning. They also provide a safe and effective environment for training maintenance operations. Despite many benefits, virtual environments are not yet widely used for training in companies. This is a result from e.g. immaturity of virtual technologies and difficulties to adopt 3D-models from different data sources.
