GUIDE FOR SURVEYS BASED ON MACHINERY RELIABILITY AND MAINTENANCE TECHNIQUES
|Publication Date:||1 January 2016|
The objectives of this Guide are to:
- Provide reliability based programs to address improved maintenance program performance. These efforts can provide increased asset value and result in improved asset safety and operational effectiveness. An additional benefit is a more clear definition of asset health so that unanticipated repairs are minimized and operations are less prone to delay.
- Provide requirements for improved reliability which seek to reduce the risk to personnel, vessels or marine structures, and the environment. This will potentially reduce the economic consequences due to a machinery failure which may otherwise occur more frequently without the application of a rational maintenance strategy, as provided for by this Guide.
- Foster effective asset management philosophies for new or existing assets and assist in providing credit toward the requirements of Special Periodical Survey of Machinery.
