The eMaintenance Lab was developed as a platform for developing
solutions aimed for maintenance decision making. The Lab facilitates research and education in maintenance.

eMaintenance Lab, is the world’s first international eMaintenance laboratory,and
is now providing various services to the logistics and maintenance divisions to both national and international research groups. This includes industry and research partners from Slovenien, Spain, Italy, Germany, Norway, Finland, and USA. In the laboratory, the researchers get access to tools that support them in building artefacts such as models, approaches, frameworks, methodologies, technologies, and tools for maintenance decision making.
