Abstract [en]

In order to stay competitive, it is necessary for companies to continuously increase the effectiveness and efficiency of their production processes. High availability has, thus, increased in importance. Therefore, maintenance has gained in importance as a support function for ensuring, e.g., quality products and on-time deliveries. Maintenance, though, is a costly support function. It has been reported that as much as 70% of the total production cost can be spent on maintenance. Further, as much as one-third of the cost of maintenance is incurred unnecessarily due to bad planning, overtime cost, limited or misused preventive maintenance, and so on. In so, condition based maintenance is introduced as one solution for a more effective maintenance.

In condition based maintenance, critical item characteristics are monitored in order to gain early indications of an incipient failure. Research, though, has shown that condition based maintenance has not been implemented on a wide basis. Therefore, the purpose of this research is to investigate how a condition based maintenance approach can be implemented in an industrial setting, and to develop a method that can assist companies in their implementation efforts. Further, the research has been divided in three research questions. They focus on: constituents of a condition based maintenance approach, decision-making prior implementation of condition based maintenance, and finally, the implementation of condition based maintenance in a company.

By using a systems approach and a case study process, how condition based maintenance can be implemented as a routine has been investigated. The result is an implementation method in which four suggested phases are presented. The method starts with a feasibility test. It then continues with an analysis phase, an implementation phase, and an assessment phase. The conclusions can be summarized as follows: implementing condition based maintenance consists of many general enabling factors, including management support, education and training, good communication, and motivation etc.

Abstract [en]

This article presents two case studies and theory on the topic of implementing a condition based maintenance approach. It visualizes that condition based maintenance, within the Swedish industry, is utilized to a lesser degree than corrective and predetermined maintenance, and argues that one reason for this is the difficulty in implementation. It also argues that additional factors, beyond technical aspects within the condition based maintenance approach, are necessary to take into consideration if successful implementation is to be achieved. The purpose of the two case studies was to investigate the process of implementing a condition based maintenance approach. The result of the investigation was compiled into a checklist with important factors to take into consideration when attempting to implement condition based maintenance within an industrial setting.

Abstract [en]

The objective with this paper is to study possible methods and tools to be used in a decision and development support model when implementing condition monitoring tools as a part of implementing a condition based maintenance strategy. The paper shortly discusses the condition based maintenance strategy, Six Sigma, Systems Engineering, and a synopsis of the former three topics. The result presented in this paper is a proposed model possible to use when performing process improvement projects, specifically within the framework of maintenance strategies and condition based maintenance in particular. The model is primarily to be used to decide if condition based maintenance really is the correct process improvement to initiate, if so on what assets in particular, and later also support the choice of which technology or technologies to utilize. The model draws from theory on the DMAIC methodology and the V-diagram model but also incorporates several tools and measurements, such as: failure mode and effect analysis, fault tree analysis, OEE- and DuPont-calculations, organizational maturity level estimation etc.

Abstract [en]

During implementation of a condition based maintenance approach numerous decisions lie ahead. A number of factors need to be taken into consideration in the decision-making. This paper, based upon theory and a brainstorming session, suggest a decision-making guideline. The suggested guideline covers the steps of; feasibility test, assignment of responsibilities, selection of assets to monitor, selection of parameters and techniques, and selection of technologies, in order to manage the decision-making more structured during implementation of condition based maintenance.
