Condition Based Maintenance within an Asset Management Framework Description: The thesis shall describe how to implement Condition Based Maintenance within an Asset Management context. Asset Management (AM) is an area within Oil & Gas (O&G) Business with a large development potential in order to give companies added value in their operations. With the increased use of Integrated Operations concepts, a new approach for maintenance engineering is necessary. The asset performance is a result of the following four aspects: Design qualities Operational Support Maintenance support Management Functions A framework/methodology is needed to handle the maintenance aspects properly in early design phases and EPCI phase. The early design phase is very important for influencing the maintenance qualities. The master study describes a theoretical framework with a main focus on the Maintenance Strategy in early design phase (Front End Loading) and subsequently Maintenance Engineering in the detail project phase (EPCI). Development of suitable Maintenance Engineering Methods to comply with Condition Based Maintenance strategies and Integrated Operations concepts is also an objective in the thesis.
