A COMPUTER BASED MAINTENANCE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM WITH DECISION PROGRAMS
AbstractThe development of a computer based maintenance management system is presented for industries using optimization models. The system which is capable of using optimization data and programs to schedule for maintenance or replacement of machines has been designed such that it enables the maintenance department control all jobs associated with plant maintenance and breakdown. It predicts the time to failure of designated plants and caters for the replacement analysis of some capital equipment. The system provides all the functions necessary for the control of maintenance spares. The system also provides complete details of the operation to be performed and parts to be used in a given maintenance job. The implementation of the system has been successfully carried out in a case study.
Keywords: Maintenance, replacement, computerization, spares, inventory.
