Development of Computerized Facility Maintenance Management System Based on Reliability Centered Maintenance and Automated Data Gathering
In this study, we propose a computerized maintenance management system based on integration of reliability centered maintenance (RCM) and automated data gathering using multi-agent technology. The objective of the proposed system is to support decision-making of maintenance managers by providing up-to-date reliability assessment of facilities in automated manner. To do so, this system was integrated by the following S/W components; 1) a computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) to record failure and maintenance history of facilities, 2) a multi-agent system (MAS) to automate data gathering to monitor condition of facilities in real time. A web based application was also developed, which analyzes failure patterns in order to provides reliability risk assessment such as expected remaining life of facilities, expected failure rates, and risk of parts to fail. A case study of implementing the proposed system in an automotive part production company was represented.
