Lifetime Data Analysis (LDA)
What is LDA?
LDA is a reliability engineering quantitative method which predicts different reliability index such as reliability; failure rate as well plots the functions associated with such indexes based on a parameter of different probability density functions (PDF) defined by the goodness of fit methods. Such methods are based on historical data.
What can you expect?
- To understand the LDA methodology concept as basic of reliability engineering assessment.
- To understand the reliability, failure rate MTTF, MTBF, MTTR
- To understand the probability density functions such as Exponential, Lognormal, Logistic, log-logistic, Weibull, Normal, Gambel, Gama, others.
- To understand the goodness of fit tests such as Plot method, Regression, likelihood, Chi-square, Kolmogorov Smirnov and Cramer von mises.
- To understand different specialist elicitation methods.
- To understand how to build up am equipment failure and repair database.
- To understand how to collect data from databases to perform LDA.
This two-day training is proposed to cover the LDA topics such as:
- Reliability concepts.
- Probability density functions.
- Goodness of fit methods.
- Lifetime data analysis methodology.
- Failure and repair historical data.
- LDA case studies applied to different equipment such as pumps, compressors, valves, susbsea equipment.
- Case studies applied to different industries such as Oil and gas, transportation and aerospace and defence industries.
The LDA training can be customised to the client demand and be performed together with other training concerning a client cases study assessment.
RAM Analysis (Reliability, Availability and Maintainability)
What is RAM analysis?
RAM analysis is a quantitative reliability engineering method applied to system level to model the asset performance as well as to define critical equipment which affects such system performance. The RAM analysis predicts the asset performance for a specified period of the life cycle which encompasses all equipment configuration. The performance indexes assessed in the RAM analysis are usually, efficiency production, operational availability and reliability.
What can you expect?
- To understand and apply the Reliability, Availability and Maintainability concept as basic of equipment specification and asset performance Index.
- To understand and implement the Reliability, Availability, Maintainability and Life Cycle Cost (RAM & LCC) methodology along different asset lifecycle phases.
- To understand the impact of maintenance on system performance.
- To model the system concerning equipment and component level by applying Reliability Diagram Block (RBD) and Fault Tree Analysis (FTA).
- To optimise the asset performance based on preventive maintenance, inspection, spare part and LCC optimisation.
Three-day training is proposed to cover the RAM analysis topics such as:
- Lifetime data analysis applied to RAM analysis.
- RAM analysis methodology steps
- RBD and FTA modelling.
- RAM analysis simulation.
- Sensitivity analysis, such as logistic, spare parts, preventive maintenance impact on asset performance.
- Asset performance optimisation based on preventive maintenance, spare parts and LCC optimisation.
- Case studies applied to Oil and gas, transportation and aerospace and defence industries.
The RAM training can be customised to the client demand and be performed together with other training concerning a client cases study assessment.
Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (FMEA)
What is FMEA?
The Failure Modes, Effect and Analysis (FMEA) aims at identifying the asset function, failure modes, cause, detection and their consequences as well as recommendation to mitigate the risk of such failures.
What can you expect?
- Identify potential failure modes for a product or process in the development phase (DFMEA) to improve product or guarantee product quality as well as during the operational phase (PFMEA) to analyse critical equipment.
- Provide risk or critical assessment associated with those failure modes, regarding frequency of occurrence, severity and detection and prioritise issues for preventive action.
- Support the RCM analysis as a baseline to define the best maintenance policies for each equipment and components.
- Drive Quantitative Accelerated test in order focus on main failure causes (product weakness) to improve the product and reliability prediction.
- Integrates with Reliability Growth management policies (identify failure modes discovered during testing, update probabilities of occurrence based on Reliability Growth testing data).
- Drive HALT test in order focus on main failure causes (Robustness).
- Analyses equipment failure effect on other equipment as well as in the whole process (SFMEA).
Two-day training is proposed to cover the FMEA topics such as:
- FMEA concept.
- Risk matrix and RPN concepts.
- FMEA applied in different asset life cycle, such as design, manufacturing, commissioning and operation.
- FMEA case studies applied to different equipment such as braking, bogies etc
- Case studies applied to diverse industries such as Oil and gas, transportation and aerospace and defence industries
THE FMEA training can be customised to the client demand and be performed together with other training concerning a client cases study assessment
