Short description of the event: 

The aim is to present innovative methods and mathematical tools for the management of the ageing of industrial systems

The conference will present the activities of the project AMMSI.
The aim of project AMMSI is to provide innovative methods and mathematical tools for the management of the ageing of industrial systems. The project includes the proposition of new stochastic models of degradation, failure and maintenance of complex systems, taking into account recurrent events, competing risks, covariates... It also includes the design of new statistical methods for analyzing such models and data from operation feedback, parametric, semi- or non-parametric methods, including goodness-of-fit tests and the treatment of missing data. Finally, it provides tools for decision support and industrial implementation of these methods in order to extend the lifetime of industrial systems by redefining the maintenance policy, while respecting safety, regulation and operating performance, in an economically optimal approach. The industrial implementation will require the development of computer codes, which may take the form of R or Matlab libraries, or may rely on the MARS software, developed by LJK and EDF R&D.
