Is The Percentage Chance of Equipment Failure During a Specified Time Period?
above screen-shot demonstrates how MaintSmart can actually predicts the chances
of an equipment failure during a specified length of time. In this example
a group of equipment items, all maintained on the same preventive maintenance (PM) task list by the same individual, are
being analyzed simulaneously.
The first row of the grid indicates that this
equipment item is failing at a decreasing rate (i.e. it's improving)
and that during a 168 hour time period of operation this equipment
item has a 26.43% chance of failing. (Failures are also user define
but default to any failure of a one minute duration or greater.)
.This equipment item fails on the average (mean) every 547.35 hours. The
tab Causes of Failures uses reliability analysis to determine
the average time to failure based upon specific failure causes, then guides
you to setting preventive maintenance tasks to circumvent these
failures thereby actually improving reliability!
But MaintSmart ceratinly isn't finished yet!
This data may now be charted, printed, etc. Each row containing
an equipment item may be selected individually and analyzed in infinite
detail as well. Maintenance management has never been simpler.
