Selecting Test and Maintenance Strategies to achieve Availability Target with lowest Life-Cycle Cost

by Dersin, Pierre; Peronne, Alban; Arroum, Cassim

In a first model, constant failure rate and perfect maintenance are assumed and Markov modelling is used. In order to contemplate the non-constant failure rate case, as well as the deterministic aspect of scheduled maintenance inspections...

An Integrated Maintenance Management Information System is the Key to Enabling Condition Based Maintenance

by Sautter, F. Chris; Jemis, Patrick W.; Goes, Christopher M.; Wooten, Jerod M.

In the CBM environment, health or condition is a function of an individual component, not families of components. In order to understand how a component degrades to a level where maintenance has to be performed, it is essential that the health and.....
