Development of FMEA/RCM methodology to be implemented in Generic Maintenance Concepts
MetadataShow full item record
This master thesis has developed methods for how to interpret failure data and incorporate these into OIA's existing database. This also gave input to improvement of OIA's existing software Kamfer to develop more functionality to be able to document the work process of adding failure data to the existing Generic Maintenance Concepts. Further, this master thesis identified areas in the Oceaneering Asset Integrity (OAI)'s existing methodology that can be improved to be in compliance with regulatory requirements for establishing a preventive maintenance program. The research was directed towards regulatory requirement for the Norwegian Continental Shelf, and any standards or writings with regards to FMEA/RCM processes and failure data. Pitfalls with regards to FMEA/RCM and failure data is that these areas of study are mainly for design of equipment and corporate risk assessments, so some interpretations has been done to be consistent both with regards to FMEA/RCM methodology and OIA's existing methodology. Formulas for calculating failure rates from the Oreda failure data has been developed as part of the study. Suggestions for optimizing a PM program based on historical data are also included.
