The Centre for Maintenance Optimization and Reliability Engineering is directed by Professor Mike Kim, with the support of Associate Director Neil Montgomery and Founding Director Professor Andrew K. S. Jardine, the internationally recognized maintenance optimization expert. C-MORE operates within the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering at the University of Toronto.
C-MORE's research is driven by close interactions with industry, in particular with MORE consortium members and with researchers at universities world-wide.
Our focus is on real-world research in engineering asset management in the areas of condition-based maintenance, spares management, protective devices, maintenance and repair contracts, and failure-finding intervals. These strong industry connections not only benefit the companies we work with, but also our graduate students, who find work in maintenance divisions of industry leaders after graduation.
We apply our research with prototype software tools that obtain valuable information from data in corporate databases. Two of these tools are now commercially available through the Ontario-based C-MORE spin-off company OMDEC, and through industry leader and innovator in asset reliability solutions Ivara.
C-MORE welcomes maintenance professionals as visitors and collaborators; please contact Mike Kim for more information.
