  • Supervise on aircraft reliability for improving maintenance program continuously

    RCM(Reliability-Centered Maintenance) philosophy logic decision methods has great applied in developing aircraft maintenance program, but the dynamic management of its process has lagged behind relatively. Because of this, the maintenance program can't earn effective verification or continuing improvement, the validity of maintenance tasks is also declined. Reliability supervision includes the collection, identification, evaluation and disposal of the various meaningful information from signs of the failure or damage is about to take place. It can dynamically verify the validity of maintenance tasks, and improve the maintenance program continuously, which is the guarantee of reliability and operational safety of aircraft. This paper keeps focus on the main problem of aircraft reliability supervision and continuous improvement of maintenance program. Which contains: Firstly, make certain supervision objects. Select those items to supervise, which have safety, operational, significant economic consequences of functionally failure with a Hazard Risk Assessment Matrix. Secondly, data collection system is established. Failures, maintenance and operation information were collected. Thirdly, method of reliability evaluation and early-warning was developed. Through the supervision and statistics of relevant reliability parameters, a trends statistical chart is drawn. Warning information is sent out while the limit value is outrun. Finally, analyses the causation and replies of problems. The causation should be found when parameter is out of alarm value. Improvement proposition about design and manufacture should be given when the product has quality problem. For the problems of maintenance program settings, perform analysis on the applicability of maintenance type, the effectiveness and rationality of maintenance interval, validity of the operation method. And then put forward concrete proposition on improving maintenance program and maintenance operation cards.

  • Notice of Retraction<br>Availability model of maintenance interval within complicated equipment life-cycle

    Targeting at the complex equipment guaranteed by three-level maintenance institution, on the assume that equipment is in as good as old condition after minor repair and not in as good as new condition after middle or overhaul repair, this paper presented a switching chart of equipment application and repair condition transformation in a lifecycle by analyzing equipment application and repair flowing procedure. It also established the connection model between maintenance interval period and availability in the lifecycle, and computed the average availability related to the fixed maintenance interval period and switch rule. As shown in a case study, the optimal maintenance interval period that can ensure the availability is maximal. This approach can be used for maintenance decision-making.

  • Multi-criteria classification for prioritization of preventive maintenance tasks to support maintenance scheduling

    Preventive maintenance scheduling is a complex maintenance management activity that involves the consideration of several factors: maintenance technicians' availability, available machine periods, maintenance skills required and, task duration and its set date of achievement. When resources are scarce and time to perform maintenance is limited due to high utilization of equipment, tasks are delayed in relation to the date set for achievement. In this context, maintenance tasks must be prioritized to minimize the delays of critical tasks and, consequently, the overall negative impact. Thus, tasks classification is considered the first step of maintenance scheduling. This paper presents a multi-criteria classification using a risk-based approach to prioritize preventive maintenance tasks. The developed method can be easily integrated in a computerized maintenance management system to support maintenance scheduling.

  • From off-Line to continuous on-line maintenance

    Summary form only given. Software is the cornerstone of the modern society. Many human activities rely on software systems that shall operate seamlessly 24/7, and failures in such systems may cause severe problems and considerable economic loss. To efficiently address a growing variety of increasingly complex activities, software systems rely on sophisticated technologies. Most software systems are assembled from modules and subsystems that are often developed by third party organization, and sometime are not even available at the system build time. This is the case for example of many Web applications that link Web services built and changed independently by third party organizations while the Web applications are running. The progresses of software engineering in the last decades have increased the productivity, reduced the costs and improved the reliability of software products, but have not eliminated the occurrence of field failures. Detecting and removing all faults before deployment is practically too expensive even for systems that are simple and fully available at design time, and impossible when systems are large and complex, and are dynamically linked to modules that may be developed and distributed only after the deployment of the system. The classic stop-and- go maintenance approaches that locate and fix field faults offline before deploying new system versions are important, but not sufficient to guarantee a seamless 24/7 behavior, because the faulty systems remain in operation until the faults have been removed and new systems redeployed [1]. On the other hand, classic fault tolerant approaches that constrain developers' freedom and rely on expensive mechanisms to avoid or mask faults do not match the cost requirements of many modern systems, and do not extend beyond the set of safety critical systems [2]. Self-healing systems and autonomic computing tackle these new challenges by moving activities from design to runtime. In self-healing systems, the borderline between design and runtime activities fades, and both design and maintenance activities must change to enable activities such as fault diagnoses and fixes to be performed fully automatically and at runtime. Maintenance activities rely on information that are usually available at design time are are not part of the system runtime infrastructure. For example, corrective maintenance requires some knowledge about the expected system behavior to locate and fix the faults, while adaptive and perfective maintenance requires some knowledge about libraries and components to identify new modules that better cope with the the changes in the requirements and in the environment. In classic maintenance approaches, this knowledge is mastered by the developers, who gather and use the required information offline to deal with the emerging maintenance problems. In self healing systems the knowledge required for maintenance activities shall be available at runtime. Self healing systems shall be designed with enough embedded knowledge to deal with unplanned events, and shall be able to exploit this information automatically and at runtime to recover from unexpected situations, like field failures. The challenges of designing powerful self- healing systems relies in the ability to minimize the amount of extra knowledge to be provided at design time, while feeding a powerful automatic recovery mechanism. An interesting approach relies on the observation that software systems are redundant by nature, and exploits the intrinsic redundancy of software system to fix faults, thus minimizing the extra effort required at design time to feed the self-healing mechanism [3]. The intrinsic redundancy of software stems from design and reusability practice: the reuse of libraries may results in different ways to achieve the same or similar results, the design for modularity may produce methods with equivalent behavior, backward compatibility may keep deprecated and new implementations in the same system. For example, libraries like Ant and Log4J implement several functionalities already available in the standard Java libraries to improve efficiency or usability, while graphical libraries, like SWT, Swing and AWT, provide overlapping functionality that may be available in systems that include two or more of these libraries. This redundancy is available for free at runtime, and can be exploited both to design self-healing mechanisms that can be automatically activated to solve faulty situations at runtime, and to improve maintenance mechanisms by facilitating failure reproduction and fault localization and fixing.
