Operation and maintenance (O&M) of today's high-tech industrial equipment means the technician is able to monitor daily operation and use his or her skills and data to detect trends that may identify problems. The technician will also need to maintain the equipment by being able to quickly analyze equipment breakdowns so that downtime can be minimized. This is the focus of an Electrical Maintenance Technician.
