Systems integration in maintenance engineering

Systems integration in maintenance engineering

These technological advances would be of little interest to a maintenance engineer if they did not offer exciting potential for access to, and sharing of, condition- indicating data. They bring with them the realistic possibility that signals from a wide range of existing control system sensors (such as thermocouples, pressure transducers and proximity probes) may be combined with those from devices specifically installed for CM purposes (such as accelerometers). This multivariate data can then be fused to improve condition-indicating information and consequently to enhance maintenance management decision making.

Life Cycle Management   in the US Nuclear Power Industry (D545)

Life Cycle Management in the US Nuclear Power Industry (D545)

With the gradual transition of the world-wide electric power industry from economically regulated to competitive, nuclear plants or fleets of plants in the US are being viewed as individual business enterprises rather than as simply production units within a monopoly with an obligation to serve. In the new environment, a key to business success in both the near and long term is asset management, which addresses both physical assets (plant facilities and equipment) and financial assets (plant value and profit). Broadly speaking, life cycle management is the process by which nuclear power plants integrate operations, maintenance, engineering, regulatory, environmental, and business activities that (1) manage plant condition (equipment reliability, aging, and obsolescence), (2) optimize operating life (including the options of early retirement and license renewal), and (3) maximize plant value while, above all, maintaining plant safety. This paper discusses the equipment LCM technology development being sponsored by US utilities through EPRI. LCM identifies the optimum long-term maintenance and replacement plan for reducing the risk that aging degradation and obsolescence make the plant vulnerable to shutdowns and derates. The paper also describes work in financial asset management (also known as Nuclear Asset Management or NAM). A NAM framework for determining plant value and allocating resources to

How To Write A Maintenance Management Recipe Cards

How To Write A Maintenance Management Recipe Cards

About the management responsibility: all models de- fine objectives for the maintenance function; however, not all of them link these goals with strategic company targets. Also, most of the models do not make a clear reference to principles of responsibility, authority and a good communication. Maybe this could be because these elements are considered as an initial assumption. About the maintenance support: approximately half of the models incorporate the use of support techniques such as operational research techniques or management sciences techniques. TPM and RCM are the most mentio- ned and they tend to appear together in management models. Also CMMS is mentioned as an indispensable tool in the majority of the models. Recent models include another techniques as the use of e-maintenance, expert systems, etc.

Advanced Structural Material – Micro Silica Swathi Rebbagondla

Maintenance, Repair and Rehabitation of existing cement concrete structures involves a lot of problem leading to significant expenditure. Inthe recent past, there has been considerable attention for improving the properties of concrete with respect to strength and durability,especially in aggressive environments. High performance concrete (HPC) appears to be a better choice for strong and durable structures.Suitable addition of mineral admixture such as silica fumes (SF), ground granulated blast furnace slag and fly ash in concrete improves the strength and durabil- ity of concrete due to considerable improvement in the microstructure of concrete composites, especially at the transition zone .Very few studies have been reported in India on the use of Silica fumesfor the development of High performance concrete and also durability character- istics of these mixes have not been reported. In order to make quantitave assessment of different cement replace- ment levels with SF on strength and durability properties for M60, M7O and M110 grades of High performance concrete trail mixes and to arrive at the maximum lev- els of replacement of cement with SF, investigations were taken. This paper reports on the performance of High per- formance concrete. Trail mixes having different replace- ments levels of cement with Silica fumes. The strength and durability characteristics of these mixes are com- pared with the mixes without Silica fumes. Compressive strengths of 60 MPa, 70 MPa and 110 MPa at 28days were obtained by using 10 percent replacement of cement with silica fumes. The results also show that the silica fumes concrete possess superior durability properties.

E-learning support to the onboard marine engineer : towards an integrated model

E-learning support to the onboard marine engineer : towards an integrated model

After a period of sea service as a junior officer, students rejoin the studies at management level either at a nautical college or an engineering college. On graduation, students qualify as senior officers onboard in either deck or engineering. The carrier at sea for most Danish seafarers has shown a declined trend over the last 5 years or so, according to Mr Hemming. He further added that, the cost of employing Danish seafarers, as the case in most developed countries, have influenced Danish ship owners for an alternative seafarers from abroad, mainly from Asia and Eastern European countries. These new changes and the demand from ship owners gave a wide spread concern that MET system in Denmark should take a new turn in trying to keep abreast with the developments in the industry. In addition to the dual-purpose system, maritime education in Denmark is moving towards integrated system and curriculum that will lead graduates receive higher certificates at university level. It is intended to establish a Bachelor (BSc) and Master (MSc) of science degrees which may extend to a level of a PhD degree in the maritime related specialisation. The aim is to develop and broaden carrier opportunities in the maritime sector both on and off shore, he concluded.

The Effects of Inadequate Urban Drainage System on Pavement Performance in Ethiopia

The Effects of Inadequate Urban Drainage System on Pavement Performance in Ethiopia

A) Improved Facility Management Service: facility maintenance service is the integrated management to enhance the performance of the infrastructure. Facility maintenance is often seen as an annoyance or as a “necessary evil.” This is partially due to the assumption that facility maintenance generates costs but does not give much in return. What is not understood is that high-quality maintenance has many positive, mostly indirect, effects on the infrastructure performance. In most towns of Ethiopia, asset management practice is poor; most infrastructures are maintained if there is some ceremonies. The situation here in Assosa is not different from this, which needs improvement by the concerned bodies.

Strategic maintenance management: Formulating maintenance strategy

Strategic maintenance management: Formulating maintenance strategy

changes have affected maintenance and made its role even more crucial in business success. Implementing lean concept is one of the significant changes in manufacturing companies. By introducing Lean concept within manufacturing industry, many companies started to apply lean tools such as Just-In-Time production and Demand-Flow-Technology, in order to be successful in this competitive market. Consequently, the demand for dependable production equipment increases. The need for having high production equipment availability causes companies to need a more effective and efficient maintenance strategy in order to reach a competitive production system. In consequence, optimizing the maintenance of production equipment can act as one key aspect of continuous improvements of the company. In order to achieve world-class performance, Swanson (2001) states that more and more companies are replacing their reactive, fire- fighting strategies for maintenance with proactive strategies like preventive and predictive maintenance and aggressive strategies like total productive maintenance (TPM).

ConEditor+: Capture and Maintenance of Constraints in Engineering Design

ConEditor+: Capture and Maintenance of Constraints in Engineering Design

We intend to capture the “context” of each constraint i.e. the information pertaining to when a constraint is applicable, referred to as its application conditions. Often, such infor- mation is implicit to the person who formulates the con- straint. We believe that it is important to make the applica- tion conditions explicit so that it can be used for both verifi- cation and maintenance. The assumptions/conditions on which a constraint is based may no longer be true/applicable and in such cases, it becomes necessary to deactivate or remove those constraints from the KB. Further, an applica- tion condition may not be relevant to a particular design task.
