Abstract

This study provides a systematic review of the existing academic literature describing the
key components of eMaintenance. The current literature is reviewed by utilizing a number of
academic databases including Scopus, SpringerLink and ScienceDirect, and Google Search is
used to find relevant academic and peer-reviewed journal articles concerning eMaintenance.
The literature describes eMaintenance as an advanced maintenance strategy that takes advantage
of the Internet, information and communication technologies, wireless technologies
and cloud computing. eMaintenance systems are used to provide real time analyses based
on real time data to offer a number of solutions and to define maintenance tasks. The collection
and analysis of appropriate maintenance and process data are critical to create robust
‘maintenance intelligence’ and finally improvements in manufacturing costs, safety, environmental
impact, and equipment reliability. This paper describes how the scientific discussion
on eMaintenance has expanded significantly during the last decade, creating a need for an
up-to-date review. As a conclusion, three research gaps in the area of eMaintenance are
identified, including evaluating the benefits of eMaintenance, agreeing on a comprehensive
definition, and developing tools and structures for cooperative eMaintenance.
