Longwall coal mining is a capital-intensive technology involving integrated system of equipment. An unpredicted downtime of a short period of any of its subsystems results in underperformance of the total system causing increased cost of production creating a bad impact on economic viability oi the project. In this paper, a condition based monitoring approach for the different subsystems are discussed which is believed to help in providing optimum utilisation of the equipment, reducing the unwanted downtime and the overall operating cost. Further, a balance among various maintenance strategies and evolution methodology for Expert management Information System (EMIS) are discussed.
