The introduction of a product has been successfully completed, the component is functioning properly for a long time within the operating and maintenance parameters defined by the manufacturer… Would it be possible to extend the intended total operating time? Could maintenance intervals be extended? Is it possible to achieve a more favourable coordination of the inspection times for the entire system and components?
In series tests, we were able to determine whether such optimizations could be carried out without endangering the operational safety of the system. We determine the state of wear, compare target and actual dimensions and make recommendations for the extension of operating and maintenance specifications.
