E-maintenance systems are considered as platforms integrating various systems in the maintenance scope, but these platforms provide only the services provided by their integrated systems. S-maintenance platform is built in the aim to provide dynamic services thanks to its core components, especially its knowledge base. This paper focus the exploitation of the s-maintenance architecture’s components to define two new processes that we called self management and self learning processes. These processes allow the automatic acquirement and integration of knowledge in the knowledge base and the dynamic evolution of the platform behavior.
