The Centre for Maintenance Optimization and Reliability Engineering is directed by Professor Andrew K. S. Jardine, the internationally recognized maintenance optimization expert, within the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering at the University of Toronto. C-MORE’s research is driven by close interactions with industry, in particular with C-MORE consortium members and with researchers at universities worldwide. Our focus is on real-world research in engineering asset management in the areas of condition based maintenance, spares management, protective devices, maintenance and repair contracts, and failure-finding intervals. These strong industry connections not only benefit the companies we work with, but also our graduate students, who find work in the maintenance divisions of industry leaders after graduation. We apply our research with prototype software tools that obtain valuable information from data in corporate databases. Two of these tools are now commercially available through the Ontario-based C-MORE spinoff company OMDEC, and through Ivara an industry leader and innovator in asset reliability solutions. C-MORE is also the driving force behind IMEC: The Asset Management Conference, which brings together leaders in the global maintenance field. For information about the conference, you can visit our site, or view Maintenance Technology’s article about the conference. C-MORE welcomes maintenance professionals as visitors and collaborators.
