A completely revised and updated edition of a bestseller, Maintenance, Replacement, and Reliability: Theory and Applications, Second Edition supplies the tools needed for making data-driven physical asset management decisions. The well-received first edition quickly became a mainstay for professors, students, and professionals, with its clear presentation of concepts immediately applicable to real-life situations. However, research is ongoing and relentless—in only a few short years, much has changed. See What’s New in the Second Edition: New Topics The role of maintenance in sustainability issues PAS 55, a framework for optimizing management assets Data management issues, including cases where data are unavailable or sparse How candidates for component replacement can be prioritized using the Jack-knife diagram New Appendices Maximum Likelihood Estimated (MLE) Markov chains and knowledge elicitation procedures based on a Bayesian approach to parameter estimation E-learning materials now supplement two previous appendices (Statistics Primer and Weibull Analysis) Updated the appendix List of Applications of Maintenance Decision Optimization Models Firmly based on the results of real-world research in physical asset management, the book focuses on data-driven tools for asset management decisions. It provides a solid theoretical foundation for various tools (mathematical models) that, in turn, can be used to optimize a variety of key maintenance/replacement/reliability decisions. It presents cases that illustrate the application of these tools in a variety of settings, such as food processing, petrochemical, steel and pharmaceutical industries, as well as the military, mining, and transportation (land and air) sectors. Based on the authors’ experience, the second edition maintains the format that made the previous edition so popular. It covers theories and methodologies grounded in the real world. Simply stated, no other book available addresses the range of methodologies associated with, or focusing on, tools to ensure that asset management decisions are optimized over the product’s life cycle. And then presents them in an easily digestable and immediately applicable way.

Component failures result from a combination of factors involving materials science, mechanics, thermodynamics, corrosion, and tribology. With the right guidance, you don’t have to be an authority in all of these areas to become skilled at diagnosing and preventing failures. Based on the author’s more than thirty years of experience, Practical Plant Failure Analysis: A Guide to Understanding Machinery Deterioration and Improving Equipment Reliability is a down-to-earth guide to improving machinery maintenance and reliability. Illustrated with hundreds of diagrams and photographs, this book examines... · When and how to conduct a physical failure analysis · Basic material properties including heat treating mechanisms, work hardening, and the effects of temperature changes on material properties · The differences in appearance between ductile overload, brittle overload, and fatigue failures · High cycle fatigue and how to differentiate between high stress concentrations and high operating stresses · Low cycle fatigue and unusual fatigue situations · Lubrication and its influence on the three basic bearing designs · Ball and roller bearings, gears, fasteners, V-belts, and synchronous belts Taking a detailed and systematic approach, Practical Plant Failure Analysis thoroughly explains the four major failure mechanisms—wear, corrosion, overload, and fatigue—as well as how to identify them. The author clearly identifies how these mechanisms appear in various components and supplies convenient charts that demonstrate how to identify the specific causes of failure.

During the eight years since the publication of Maintenance Excellence: Optimizing Equipment Life-Cycle Decisions the business environment has changed drastically. Globalization, consolidation, and changes in technology challenge asset management and maintenance professionals to be more efficient. Globalization and consolidation have been particularly instrumental in the changes in maintenance standards, approaches, and the use of technology to become more efficient and cost effective. Reflecting all this and more, the second edition has been renamed: Asset Management Excellence: Optimizing Equipment Life-Cycle Decisions. New in the Second Edition: Two new chapters on Maintenance Management Fundamentals Coverage of leadership issues, the implementation of new processes, and change management Discussion of the design stage and key factors for successful implementation Understanding the dynamic influences and optimization of spares management Updated case studies Introduction to new software packages that optimize a variety of maintenance and replacement decisions Although there have been patterns and trends that have emerged around the world in asset management, the root principles are the same—personnel with tools go out to address the needs of maintaining assets. However, many of the tools, technologies, and thought processes have evolved and matured to allow a rethinking of the deeper maintenance processes. For this edition, a new set of authors and contributors have revisited the content, updated information, and added new content based on the passage of time, changes in thinking, and the introduction and improvement in technologies.

To be able to compete successfully both at national and international levels, production systems and equipment must perform at levels not even thinkable a decade ago. Requirements for increased product quality, reduced throughput time and enhanced operating effectiveness within a rapidly changing customer demand environment continue to demand a high maintenance performance. In some cases, maintenance is required to increase operational effectiveness and revenues and customer satisfaction while reducing capital, operating and support costs. This may be the largest challenge facing production enterprises these days. For this, maintenance strategy is required to be aligned with the production logistics and also to keep updated with the current best practices. Maintenance has become a multidisciplinary activity and one may come across situations in which maintenance is the responsibility of people whose training is not engineering. This handbook aims to assist at different levels of understanding whether the manager is an engineer, a production manager, an experienced maintenance practitioner or a beginner. Topics selected to be included in this handbook cover a wide range of issues in the area of maintenance management and engineering to cater for all those interested in maintenance whether practitioners or researchers. This handbook is divided into 6 parts and contains 26 chapters covering a wide range of topics related to maintenance management and engineering.

Uptime describes the combination of activities that deliver fewer breakdowns, improved productive capacity, lower costs, and better environmental performance. The bestselling second edition of Uptime has been used as a textbook on maintenance management in several postsecondary institutions and by many companies as the model framework for their maintenance management programs. Following in the tradition of its bestselling predecessors, Uptime: Strategies for Excellence in Maintenance Management, Third Edition explains how to deal with increasingly complex technologies, such as mobile and cloud computing, to support maintenance departments and set the stage for compliance with international standards for asset management. This updated edition reflects a far broader and deeper wealth of experience and knowledge. In addition, it restructures its previous model of excellence slightly to align what must be done more closely with how to do it. The book provides a strategy for developing and executing improvement plans that work well with the new values prevalent in today's workforce. It also explains how you can use seemingly competing improvement tools to complement and enhance each other. This edition also highlights action you can take to compensate for the gradual loss of skills in the current workforce as "baby boomers" retire.
