    Abstract

    Maintenance encompasses all efforts done to restore a system or equipment's inherent reliability. The basic maintenance philosophy began with the concept of failure maintenance. This involved corrective or breakdown maintenance and preventative maintenance. With the advance of technology has come the concept of CBM (condition-based maintenance). This involves regular measurement of diagnostically significant parameters which provide the basis for equipment condition monitoring. The CBM principles advantages and procedure are outlined. Current CBM practice is described and the way ahead is given. The CBM tools (diagnostic and management) are discussed. Finally the RMC (reduced maintenance concept) is also discussed.

    Date published

    1974

    Abstract

    The method of planned maintenance developed by B.P. Tanker Co Ltd is described. Three basic steps are taken for each ship compiling an index of all equipment requiring maintenance preparing maintenance routines and setting about a maintenance programme covering a five year cycle for every item in the index. Manhours available for maintenance work were calculated aiming at a balanced workload over the five year cycle. Each ship was provided with a library of cards of maintenance routines and a visual display planning board. Miantenance report forms are then produced which act as input forms into a computer system. Both planned and unscheduled main tenance may be monitored by this method "Planned Maintenance Reviews" "equipment performance report" and "unit maintenance history" are all generated by the computer program. Future developments are discussed.

    Abstract

    To assure safety to protect the environment and to secure the commercial success of the business risks must be effectively managed. By reducing the likelihood of equipment failure maintenance is a risk control measure but to be effective it must be managed by recognised risk management principles. Historical approaches to maintenance review and development are discussed. A risk based review of existing maintenance (REM) to establish how successful the existing maintenance actions are in reducing risks to acceptable levels the cost benefit provided by the existing or proposed maintenance actions and areas where risked costs indicate that further maintenance actions should be considered is outlined. An in-house analysis tool called CyberAlpha is used. Risk based REM techniques have been shown to be particularly effective in the offshore oil and gas sector and three case studies are presented.

  • Will a maintenance friendly design contribute to lower life-time costs of a vessel?

    Authors

    R K Hansen

    Shelf Location

    213d

    Abstract

    The annual maintenance and repair costs of an average container vessel are about $3000 which is about 6% of total operating costs. Maintenance costs could be reduced by making maintenance work easier and by reducing the maintenance load; both these approaches are briefly discussed. The need for maintenance friendly ship designs is emphasised.

  • Method for adjustment and design of the ship´s propulsion maintenance concept

    Authors

    Date published

    2005

    Abstract

    The maintenance of the ship's propulsion system is conceived from the maintenance plan based on the information given by the producers. The maintenance concept by time is not the most efficient way of maintenance. A series of unplanned (accidental) failures of the propulsion system which happen during operation proves that it is necessary to combine some other maintenance approaches. The most reliable method for designing maintenance is inspecting the condition of the proper equipment during operation and this is achieved by registering the failures their causes and the conditions under which they happen. A method is presented for the adjustment and design of the ship propulsion system maintenance concept MA-CAD (maintenance concept adjustment and design) which provides the required level of security and the lowest costs in the life cycle. The method begins from an installed component to the risk analysis namely from the failure mode to the maintenance concept. Equipment identification is carried out through functional decomposition. The ship decomposed into units and further to the level of installed components that are classified as the type item of a component.

  • The 'maintenance friendly approach': a very complex theme

    Abstract

    Maintenance is given a high profile in safety rules yet it is given little consideration during the design and construction of ships. The composition of direct maintenance costs is outlined and is subdivided into personnel equipment and material loss of hire and direct costs for dry docking shipyard use etc. Maintenance activities are then considered in terms of routine medium and great maintenance in which the latter includes intervention to significant parts of the vessel for example the keel or the hull. The connection between maintenance and safety is addressed in the light of the ISM Code. Finally a design approach to maintenance is presented.

  • A maintenance strategy to meet the challenges of a mature installation

    Authors

    Date published

    2002

    Abstract

    An effective maintenance strategy must be tailored to the condition of the equipment and be aligned with the organisations business objectives. A method of achieving these two goals is presented. In mature installations the business objectives often place great demands on the strategy to ensure cost-effective delivery of reliable operation. Reliability Centred Maintenance is a valuable tool for translating the strategy into practical maintenance activities. However in a mature installation there is scope to use a simplified approach to build upon existing maintenance practices and to develop a set of maintenance activities. By using a risk assessment technique on these activities an effective maintenance plan aligned to the business objectives can be developed. This method is illustrated with a practical example relating to the maintenance of high voltage distribution circuit breakers in a large petro-chemical complex.

    Abstract

    The Reliability Centred Maintenance (RCM) technique is a structured method for maintenance analysis in all phases of an item's life cycle from design to operation and phase-out. It is an aid to increasing quality in maintenance by ensuring high safety standards and optimising plant availability while controlling maintenance costs. The RCM concept is based on systematic analysis which can be divided into four major steps: criticality evaluation of main functions functional breakdown and creation of a function hierarchy cause and consequence analysis and selection of maintenance strategy and spare parts evaluation. An initial maintenance policy based on these analyses is continuously improved by data reported from operation.

  • Study on maintenance of ING cargo lines using a risk-based maintenance system developed for rotating machinery including the main engines and auxiliary machinery of ships

    Abstract

    RBM (risk-based maintenance) previously been adopted for power-generating plants and oil refinery plants is now being expanded to offshore plants as well. Qualitative RBM has also been introduced as an element of classification surveys for engines and auxiliary machinery of ships as a type of RCM (reliability centred maintenance). However it has been difficult to apply RBM to rotating machinery because almost all RBM systems are based upon API581 or ASME CRTD standards which are designed for pressure vessel leakage through holes generated by mechanical damage. Nippon Kaiji Kyokai has developed the world's first RBM system for rotating machinery including the main engines and auxiliary machinery of ships. Using past maintenance data this RBM system provides risk matrixes and can predict future changes to risk levels for different maintenance methods. One study has been carried out using this RBM system on an LNG cargo line extending from the shore connection to the cargo pumps in the ship's cargo tank. The results of this study show that RBM evaluation provides a practical and transparent method for developing maintenance plans by determining numerical risk which is calculated by the multiplication of failure probability and the consequences of failures.
