Simple to Use Reliability
The above grid is generated in
response to you selecting a Date Period, and
Analysis Method and in this case an Equipment
Area or Work Area. An equipment area is a user defined
grouping of equipment items maintained by one individual. Notice the
column headings for the grid. Instantaneous Estimate of Reliability is a
method used to estimate reliability where there isn't an abundance of data
to draw from. Failure Rate is shown as Increasing,
Decreasing or Insufficient Data. In this
case the user wanted to know the chances of equipment failure for all
equipment items in the Bread Oven/Cooler work area during
a 100 hour production run. MaintSmart's answers are listed in this column.
The last column is the Mean (or Average) Time Between
Failures. This value is of particular
importance as it gives you an idea how long an equipment item ususally
runs between failures. MaintSmart
uses MTBF later looking closely at the MTBF for each failure cause then
associating user assigned tasks with these failure causes for the purpose
of building PM lists that are effective and efficient. No
other CMMS does this! This is a tremendously powerful money-saving
feature of this software.
course you may
print this grid or automatically chart any 2 columns in Excel 97+.
MaintSmart performs reliability analysis
on specific failure causes for the purpose of building the optimum PM
list. No other CMMS does this.
