Maintenance Information System and Failure Rate Prediction

Part of the Springer Series in Reliability Engineering book series (RELIABILITY)


A modern approach to the maintenance problem requires an efficient support operated by the information system. There are a lot of articulated data to be taken into consideration. A system that collects and organizes this information is a prerequisite for any further elaboration. Nowadays, information technology provides to maintenance engineers and practitioners an automatic software platform called a “computerized maintenance management system,” with some advantages but also some omissions. Often engineers and practitioners cannot wait for the implementation of the computerized maintenance management system; their policies require robust information since from the phase-in of the equipment or plant. They may wish to get reliability results more quickly than in the case of data coming from products operating under normal conditions. This situation is usually faced using the experience of the maintenance personnel but several lacks of robustness of data occur. Alternative, more accurate approaches are accelerated testing and failure data prediction using an existing database.
