La gestion en conditions opérationnelles des matériels utilisés en raid polaire

Abstract : This study presents an ergonomic analysis of the maintenance operations conducted during land transport convoys for the resupply of the scientific base Concordia. These convoys depart from the French base Dumont d’Urville, linking it to the French-Italian station located 1150 km inland on the Antarctic icecap. Maintenance, preventive or corrective, is after driving, the main activity on these traverses. Systematic participant observations and self analysis interviews conducted during a traverse, have highlighted (1) that preventative and corrective maintenance can be programmed or delayed by several hours or days; (2) preventative maintenance comprises routine maintenance and/or repair, refurbishment; (3) preventative maintenance undertaken in pairs allows a double check of the development of wear and tear; (4) Corrective maintenance is an area where expertise can be developed, including expertise tempered by the environmental constraints. The results are discussed in relation to maintenance as a process undertaken under different time constraints and in terms of repair and refurbishment activities.
