This design project took place at the company Beenen Industrial Automation. Beenen designs and realizes complete control systems for the industrial, infrastructure, and water technology sectors. Besides this, they are also responsible for the maintenance services on the bridges and locks in the Province Overijssel and provide 24-hour maintenance support in all sectors. Beenen wants to investigate whether the maintenance on the bridges can be performed ’smarter’ by utilizing different maintenance strategies alongside Corrective Maintenance, which is currently used. Corrective Maintenance has the goal to identify the failure or error and rectify it to make the asset operational again. The disadvantage of performing Corrective Maintenance is that failures are normally detected when it is already too late to take preventive measures. Alternative maintenance strategies will be discussed and a Decision Making Grid is used to assign the correct maintenance strategy to different parts of the bridges. For example, Condition-based Maintenance is advised for the maintenance of the mechanical parts of the bridges, while Preventive Maintenance is advised for the maintenance of the cameras. The Condition-based Maintenance strategy is further examined by setting up a pilot project using vibration analysis to perform Condition-based Maintenance on a bridge located in Giethoorn Noord. During this pilot, an anomaly was detected which could indicate an upcoming bearing problem in the electrical
