There are plenty of challenges. 

One of them is  digitization. It creates a demand for a Smart Industry which in turn requires Smart Maintenance. Technology, skills and results will all change radically. It starts now and will affect most things, quite quickly as well.

Another challenge is how we should  catch. How do you take part in such a rapid development when you already have too much to do? Our Smart Maintenance POD may be the solution. Here you can listen to your colleagues, researchers and other experts. 

Källström's introduction
to the Smart Maintenance Pod.

Get in the habit of listening to an episode while driving, shopping, doing laundry or taking a walk.  All you need is a Smart Phone and a hands-free cord… And, do not forget to keep an eye on new episodes announced in the newsletters that all members of the Sustainability Circle receive. We meet exciting people every single week and the microphone is almost always with ...

That data lubricates decision-making processes is a good starting point when developing a strategy and roadmap for how to use digitization. Per Stenlöf shares his experiences and insights about who succeeds with digitization.

Digitization is like building Lego.  You do not know exactly what pieces you have  or what it will be. But you have a picture in your head of where you are going  or would like to build. But you dare to re-prioritize as you see what emerges. The end result may not be exactly as you thought from the beginning, but it was still good and can be used. "

With the threats that many see in front of them with the active presence of digitalisation  in our everyday life the question is asked: How can  do we guarantee security in the cyber world?  

Meet Professor Andrei  Sabelfeld , Chalmers, with a focus on cyber-security. He has been working with software security since 2004. In his research group, they have looked at various aspects, such as integrity.  

Andrej has studied and researched in the USA and Russia and has been working at Chalmers for many years.

Technology is doing more and more. But it will never do everything. The technique sounds uncritical. Man is needed to ensure farsightedness and to, from time to time, slow down. Therefore, we must be good, maybe even get better, at being human. It places demands on the relationship between individual and system so that the work environment becomes socially sustainable. In addition, it places great demands on us to develop tomorrow's leadership.

Smart Maintenance is the next generation of maintenance linked to industrial digitization. But it is not just about technology but also the supply of skills and the role of man in the system.  

In addition, today's young people who have an important role in  the development of Smart Maintenance. But to attract young people to the profession, it is important to be out early and inspire, says Anders.

... Linda Ramstedt Marklund, Fortum. 

The technical development in the field of energy is enormous. Sun and wind are produced and consumed, unlike fossil fuels, at exactly the same moment. This means that prices will become increasingly volatile and that there is a lot of money to be made from adapting energy consumption to when there is plenty of energy. The energy may even be free sometimes! Flexibility thus becomes more important than energy savings!

Fortum has come a long way in the work with what we call Smart Maintenance. In addition, it has been fast, inexpensive to implement and has yielded significant results. We may not have full control over what the algorithms do, but the results are convincing, says Linda.

... Ljot Strömseng, Norconsult

All companies are part of and thus dependent on society. Society and its properties are affected by digitalisation. This raises a number of questions:


How are the buildings developed? How do we combine longevity with flexibility? Will we 3D-print buildings? And, what do we do with the old ones? Can they also be smart?
