Digital transformation will offer huge potential to realize innovative, knowledge-based maintenance solutions and strategies. They will be the key for better use of resources to drastically reduce the time required for inspections and repair processes. This contribution aims to give insight into the most important challenge: Digitizing, sharing and linking valuable maintenance knowledge across operators and plants. Once this step becomes a success, smart maintenance will generate beyond the hype a significant added value and thus also ensure the acceptance in practical use to pave the way from fail and fix to prevent and predict.
