  • Preliminary study of the vibration-based maintenance implementation: case
    • Pages: 134 - 151
      Abstract: Journal of Quality in Maintenance Engineering, Volume 24, Issue 2, Page 134-151, May 2018.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to develop the different phases of the implementation of vibration-based maintenance (VBM). Then, the focus will be on the first two stages, namely, the inventory and feasibility study where each step will be translated into a very detailed implementation process through an industrial case study. Design/methodology/approach The study is based on a state of art on the implementation of the VBM; a survey of national and international experts in the field of VBM and finally an analysis of 30 years of VBM practice in a large Moroccan company in the field of chemical processing, via a collective approach called Diagnostic Court Autonome. Findings The study showed that improving productivity by reducing downtimes due to vibration defects through effective vibration monitoring is possible and investment in equipment and vibration monitoring personnel is largely justified in the company studied. Originality/value This paper presents in detail the two preliminary phases with all procedures describing in a practical way the operating rules to apply and organize the roles of different actors. The work will be useful both to researchers and maintenance managers interested in structuring their vibration monitoring cells.

  • Flying asset
    • Pages: 152 - 169
      Abstract: Journal of Quality in Maintenance Engineering, Volume 24, Issue 2, Page 152-169, May 2018.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to create a framework to provide a scalable maintenance program for unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) in order to choose the most suitable and feasible maintenance strategy in terms of reliability. Design/methodology/approach The paper opted for a reliability-centered maintenance-based approach to develop the framework using a UAS as the starting point of the research. A linear and user-friendly design of the methodology based on a Boolean flowchart was chosen in order to lead the analyst through the process avoiding as much as possible subjectivity decision-making issues. Finally, the framework was, on the component level, performed by a UAS company gathering feedback on its applicability. Findings An agile and structured decision-making framework for developing scalable maintenance program of UAS is provided. The proposed solution gives the opportunity to tailor the maintenance strategy to the technical characteristics, considering not only the single component but also situations and conditions in which the machine will operate. Research limitations/implications Because of the chosen research approach, the framework is potentially applicable to every UAS. A first trial of the method was run on a multirotor vehicle equipped with eight electric brushless motors. Further studies focused on different UAS will be mandatory in order to obtain comparable and robust findings and a reliable approach. Practical implications This study offers a different scheme to elaborate a specific maintenance solution related to the characteristics of the system. It strives to remedy the drawbacks of the traditional approach for a manned aircraft not completely suitable for systems with such different functions, features and tasks. The authors believe that the method presented in this paper will provide a new selection tool for choosing maintenance actions based on the features of the UAS. Originality/value This paper provides a new and usable solution to include the maintenance actions in the management of pioneering products. In spite of the maintenance program representing an essential aspect to provide reliable assets, frameworks to create programs and to help manufacturers and users are still difficult to find or to apply to different UAS. This gap enhances the misunderstanding that the maintenance is not required or essential for the unmanned aircrafts management.

  • Maintenance and setup planning in manufacturing systems under
    • Pages: 170 - 184
      Abstract: Journal of Quality in Maintenance Engineering, Volume 24, Issue 2, Page 170-184, May 2018.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to find the optimal production and setup policies for a manufacturing system that produces two different types of parts. The manufacturing system consists of one machine subject to random failures and repairs. Reconfiguring the machine to switch production from one type of product to another generates a non-production time and a significant cost. Design/methodology/approach This paper proposes an approach based on the development of optimal production and setup policies, taking into account the possibilities of undertaking the setup for all modes of the machine, and covering them at the end of setup. New optimality conditions are developed in terms of modified Hamilton-Jacobi-Bellman (HJB) equations and recursive numerical methods are applied to solve such equations. Findings The proposed approach led to determine more realistic production rates of both parts and setup sequences for the different modes of the machine that significantly influence the inventory and the system capacity. A numerical example and sensitivity analysis are used to determine the structure of the optimal policies and to show the helpfulness and robustness of the results obtained. Practical implications Following the steps of the proposed approach will provide the control policies for industrial manufacturing systems with setup permitted at all modes of the machine, and when the setup does not necessarily restore the machine to its operational mode. The proposed optimal policy takes into account the stochastic nature of the machine mode at the end of setup and we show that ignoring it leads to non-natural policies and underestimates significantly the safety stock thresholds. Originality/value Considering the assumptions presented in this paper leads to a new structure of the control laws for the production planning of manufacturing systems with setup.

  • Maintenance management for transportation process in quarry industry
    • Pages: 185 - 199
      Abstract: Journal of Quality in Maintenance Engineering, Volume 24, Issue 2, Page 185-199, May 2018.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to enhance the capability in managing the maintenance of the transportation process from a quarry to a crushing plant, measured by the availability value and the process capability value. Design/methodology/approach The maintenance management plan consists of plans for three levels of management: strategy, tactical and operational maintenance plans. The Deming cycle is a continuous improvement tool use for controlling and monitoring activities of the plans. There are three Deming cycles according to these plans, the first of which involves the improvement of machine performance and investment evaluation. The second involves the improvement of plans, schedule, and activities of preventive maintenance including autonomous maintenance. The third is for human resource development on maintenance works. Moreover, the feedback of a prior round of each cycle comes early to detect abnormalities that provide better capability in maintenance. Findings Three Deming cycles can use for enhancing the maintenance management. The parameters are availability (A) of machines and the capability process (Cpk) of the transportation process. The results of this research state that the availability value of machines increases to 80-92 percent while the process capability value increases to 0.56. Practical implications The maintenance management, especially strategic plan, tactical plan and operational plan via the Deming cycle, can be implemented in other medium-sized industries with limited technology and personnel. It was found that the implementation of the plans has continued to progress with the Deming cycle. Originality/value This paper proposes how to successfully implement the maintenance management for medium-sized industries with limited technology and personnel. The maintenance management of three levels is carried out simultaneously by using the Deming cycle. This work has proven to be successful which can be expressed in the availability and the capability process values.

  • Dependability-based maintenance optimization in healthcare domain
    • Pages: 200 - 223
      Abstract: Journal of Quality in Maintenance Engineering, Volume 24, Issue 2, Page 200-223, May 2018.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to review maintenance strategies within the healthcare domain and to discuss practical needs as gaps between research and practice. Design/methodology/approach The paper systematically categorizes the published literature on clinical maintenance optimization and then synthesizes it methodically. Findings This study highlights the significant issues relevant to the application of dependability analysis in healthcare maintenance, including the quantitative and qualitative criteria taken into account, data collection techniques and applied approaches to find the solution. Within each category, the gaps and further research needs have been discussed with respect to both an academic and industrial perspective. Practical implications It is worth mentioning that medical devices are becoming more and more numerous, various and complex. Although, they are often affected by environmental disturbances, sharp technological development, stochastic and uncertain nature of operations and degradation and the integrity and interoperability of the supportability system, the associated practices related to asset management and maintenance in healthcare are still lacking. Therefore, the literature review of applied based research on maintenance subject is necessary to reveal the holistic issues and interrelationships of what has been published as categorized specific topics. Originality/value The paper presents a comprehensive review that will be useful to understand the maintenance problem and solution space within the healthcare context.

  • FMECA-based maintenance planning through COPRAS-G and PSI
    • Pages: 224 - 243
      Abstract: Journal of Quality in Maintenance Engineering, Volume 24, Issue 2, Page 224-243, May 2018.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to investigate the extent at which the reliability of an aluminium wire rolling mill can be improved by ameliorating current control and maintenance practices. Design/methodology/approach The paper deals with the discrimination of the most critical components by substantial shop-floor failure data. The research work narrates a method for evaluating maintainability criticality index for each failure cause of identified critical components through two different MCDM approaches: one based on grey-complex proportional risk assessment (COPRAS-G) and the other based on preference section index (PSI). Findings The primary findings of this research work are to prioritize the maintenance activities by comparing results obtained through different failure analysis models. It is proposing improvements in the maintenance plan of critical components like bearings, gears and shafts of an aluminium wire rolling mill which are commonly representing the most critical components in a large range of industrial processes. Research limitations/implications The limitation of the proposed study is that the failure models may not represent failures due to the first instant every time as adequate of design as such components are not checked for a high failure rate. Practical implications The proposed study is an interdisciplinary work which will help to understand about the working lives of components and associated failures. It will lead to reengineer new tools efficiently and to gain the maintenance excellence. Originality/value Originality mainly consists in the contemporary application of two non-identical MCDM-based methods (COPRAS-G and PSI). It will help to elucidate maintenance issues of major process industries and recommended deliverable keys.

  • Investigating the effects of operators on warranty cost under sales delay
    • Pages: 244 - 259
      Abstract: Journal of Quality in Maintenance Engineering, Volume 24, Issue 2, Page 244-259, May 2018.
      Purpose Due to the fact that the non-standard products, being used by customers, may cause failures in products with sales delays, which naturally affect the warranty policy. Thus, it seems to be necessary to study these two concepts simultaneously. The paper aims to discuss these issues. Design/methodology/approach In this paper, a model is developed for estimating the expected warranty costs under sales delay conditions when two operator costs (failing but not reported and non-failing but reported) are included. Findings The proposed model is validated using a numerical example for a two types of intermittent and fatal failures occur under a non-renewing warranty policy. Originality/value Sales delay is the time interval between the date of production and the date of sale. Most reported literature on warranty claims data analysis related to sales delay have mainly focussed on estimating the probability distribution of the sales delay.
