The department Maintenance and Repair Technologies focuses its research activities on the development and analysis of innovative MRO technologies and methods. These novel processes such as additive layer manufacturing are assessed for their application potential in the scope of MRO services. The particular key topic of the analysis is the evaluation of interfaces between individual MRO technologies and their modular combination. These modular process chains are optimized by using virtual simulation models. The main research concentrates on the certification and integration of novel methods into the maintenance cycle.
The implementation and interaction of innovative technologies is assessed in the MRO 4.0 research application laboratory of the institute.
