Web and wireless enabled information systems are becoming the backbone of the knowledge society. For complex electromechanical and software intensive equipment, the transition to e-maintenance involves original equipment manufacturers, the owners and operators of industrial facilities, and their service providers. Narrowly scoped technological and intra-organisational approaches fail to overcome the slow deployment of ICT in maintenance and repair processes. Relying on experience and a closer analysis of this problem in the context of an industry-led e-maintenance project, this paper describes an acceleration approach based on model-reuse within e-maintenance system decision and development methods. It is an option to elaborate this approach as part of an institutional initiative.
