The book aims to be reading for asset maintenance management in a perspective of whole life cycle of any type of physical asset. It deals with acquisition management, including econometric models to evaluate its life cycle, and the maintenance policies to adopt during its life until withdrawal. It also covers vital areas such as EAM/CMMS systems and its integration with the many technologies that are used to aid condition monitoring and the internet of things to improve maintenance management and to increase equipment availability. This will equip readers with new management methodologies, their requisites, and its importance to the improvement of corporate competitiveness. Key Features • Presents life cycle analysis in asset management • Attribution of tools to improve the life cycle of equipment • Provides assistance on the diagnosis of the maintenance state • Presentation of the state-of-the-art of technology to aid maintenance • Explores integration of EAM/CMMS systems with internet of things

A practical guide to facilitate statistically well-founded decisions in the management of assets of an electricity grid Effective and economic electric grid asset management and incident management involve many complex decisions on inspection, maintenance, repair and replacement. This timely reference provides statistically well-founded, tried and tested analysis methodologies for improved decision making and asset management strategy for optimum grid reliability and availability. The techniques described are also sufficiently robust to apply to small data sets enabling asset managers to deal with early failures or testing with limited sample sets. The book describes the background, concepts and statistical techniques to evaluate failure distributions, probabilities, remaining lifetime, similarity and compliancy of observed data with specifications, asymptotic behavior of parameter estimators, effectiveness of network configurations and stocks of spare parts. It also shows how the graphical representation and parameter estimation from analysis of data can be made consistent, as well as explaining modern upcoming methodologies such as the Health Index and Risk Index. Key features: Offers hands-on tools and techniques for data analysis, similarity index, failure forecasting, health and risk indices and the resulting maintenance strategies. End-of-chapter problems and solutions to facilitate self-study via a book companion website. The book is essential reading for advanced undergraduate and graduate students in electrical engineering, quality engineers, utilities and industry strategists, transmission and distribution system planners, asset managers and risk managers.

With a strong emphasis on basic concepts and practical techniques throughout, the book demonstrates in detail how effective technical competencies in maintenance management can be built in engineering organizations. The book thus provides students and practising engineers alike with the methodologies and tools needed to understand and implement the systems approach to maintenance management. The major goals for the text include : To provide a good understanding of different types of maintenance management systems such as breakdown, preventive, predictive, proactive. To explain benefits of planned maintenance. To explain condition-based monitoring techniques with focus on vibration monitoring, thermography, and motor condition monitoring. To stress the role of reliability engineering in maintenance with tools like Failure Mode and Effect Analysis, Root Cause Analysis, and Criticality Matrix. To explain activities of maintenance planning with focus on shutdown planning, human resources development, and tools employed for monitoring. To emphasize management functions such as procurement of spares, measurement of maintenance effectiveness, etc. To give an overview of project management tools such as PERT etc. To introduce computerized maintenance management systems. To explain the basics of hazard analysis and fault tree analysis. Review questions in each chapter, worked-out examples wherever applicable, case studies and an exclusive appendix on “Selected Questions and Answers” are all designed to provoke critical thinking. This text is suitable for undergraduate and postgraduate courses in Maintenance Engineering taught in the department of mechanical engineering in almost all universities.
