Maintenance management of complex industrial systems: a methodology for renewal strategies
KTH, School of Electrical Engineering (EES), Industrial Information and Control Systems.
2005 (English)Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other scientific)
Abstract [en]

For complex technical systems in the electricity and pulp and paper industries, maintenance management addresses how to exploit physical assets in the most profitably way. This is a difficult task that requires taking into consideration parameters of totally different natures – e.g. reliability data, operating costs, condition of technical systems, the environment and rules and regulation.

An incorrect estimate of a residual lifetime can result in a premature renewal with accompanying high capital costs. If, however, renewal is delayed, a breakdown may occur which can cause major damage to technical equipment and a loss of income due to outages. Because of the complexity of many technical systems, it can be hard to select adequate data to use when making decisions about renewal strategies. To cope with this, one approach is to use less detailed models that are operated by skilled analysts.

This work demonstrates the advantage of such an approach by proposing two methods applied in a joint methodology that has its origins in RCM. The methodology consists of Dynamic Lifetime Model (DLA) and the Condition Based Index (CBI). The DLA method copes with the financial risk associated with the point in time for when a renewal is carried out and the CBI method uses critical parameters to estimate the condition of a technical system. The two methods together create a quantitative connection between reliability, maintenance and financial risk. A case study based validation of the methodology was carried out at SCA Ortvikens paper mill on a refiner system and Forsmark nuclear power plant. Lessons learned from the case study showed that the methodology could be used to identify which components could cause costly breakdown. By using the methodology a manager gets a decision support tool for estimating short-term and long-term consequences of decisions regarding maintenance management in order to maximize utility of the system concerned

Abstract [en]

In this paper two new methods are proposed, dynamic lifetime assessment method (DLA) and condition based index (CBI) method. These methods use variety reduction in two steps; first a financial risk analysis is carried out with the DLA method, and secondly, the technical condition is described with the CBI method. The inputs are real time values and/or subjective expert judgements. The two methods in combination consider both financial risk and the technical condition for a technical system. The result of an analysis is a helpful tool for a manager for making decisions about long-term maintenance rel load o984-a4012-a4-a or renewal strategies. An analysis also reveals if more resources are needed in order to avoid a long-term deterioration of the condition of a system.
