Reliability Analysis and Asset Management of Engineering Systems Book Excerpt:

Reliability Analysis and Asset Management of Engineering Systems explains methods that can be used to evaluate reliability and availability of complex systems, including simulation-based methods. The increasing digitization of mechanical processes driven by Industry 4.0 increases the interaction between machines and monitoring and control systems, leading to increases in system complexity. For those systems the reliability and availability analyses are increasingly challenging, as the interaction between machines has become more complex, and the analysis of the flexibility of the production systems to respond to machinery failure may require advanced simulation techniques. This book fills a gap on how to deal with such complex systems by linking the concepts of systems reliability and asset management, and then making these solutions more accessible to industry by explaining the availability analysis of complex systems based on simulation methods that emphasise Petri nets. Explains how to use a monitoring database to perform important tasks including an update of complex systems reliability Shows how to diagnose probable machinery-based causes of system performance degradation by using a monitoring database and reliability estimates in an integrated way Describes practical techniques for the application of AI and machine learning methods to fault detection and diagnosis problems

Information Systems for Engineering and Infrastructure Asset Management Book Excerpt:

​Engineering and infrastructure assets maintain the lifeline of economies. It is, therefore, critical to manage these assets in such a way that they provide a consistent level of service throughout their lifecycle. Management of asset lifecycle, however, is information intensive and utilises a plethora of information systems. The role of theses systems in asset management is much more profound. It extends beyond the organizational boundaries and addresses business relationships with external stakeholders to deliver enhanced level of business outcomes. In doing so information systems are not only required to translate business strategic considerations into action, but are also expected to produce learnings and feedback that informs business strategy and aids in strategic reorientation.

Engineering Systems Reliability Safety and Maintenance Book Excerpt:

Today, engineering systems are an important element of the world economy and each year billions of dollars are spent to develop, manufacture, operate, and maintain various types of engineering systems around the globe. Many of these systems are highly sophisticated and contain millions of parts. For example, a Boeing jumbo 747 is made up of approximately 4.5 million parts including fasteners. Needless to say, reliability, safety, and maintenance of systems such as this have become more important than ever before. Global competition and other factors are forcing manufacturers to produce highly reliable, safe, and maintainable engineering products. Therefore, there is a definite need for the reliability, safety, and maintenance professionals to work closely during design and other phases. Engineering Systems Reliability, Safety, and Maintenance: An Integrated Approach eliminates the need to consult many different and diverse sources in the hunt for the information required to design better engineering systems.

Cases on Optimizing the Asset Management Process Book Excerpt:

It is critical to improve the asset management system implementation as well as economics and industrial decision making to ensure that a business may move smoothly internally. Maintenance management should be aligned to the activities of maintenance in accordance with key business strategies, which must be designed under the comprehensive approach of an asset management process. After transforming the priorities of the business into priorities of maintenance, maintenance managers will use their medium-team strategies to tackle potential weaknesses in the maintenance of the equipment in accordance with these objectives. Cases on Optimizing the Asset Management Process explains and summarizes the processes and the reference frame necessary for the implementation of the Maintenance Management Model (MMM). This book acts as an overview of the current state of the art in asset management, providing innovative tools and practices from the fourth industrial revolution. Presenting topics like criticality analysis, physical asset maintenance, and unified modelling language, this text is essential for industrial and manufacturing engineers, plant supervisors, academicians, researchers, advanced-level students, technology developers, and managers who make decisions in this field.

This textbook provides an introduction to probabilistic reliability analysis of power systems. It discusses a range of probabilistic methods used in reliability modelling of power system components, small systems and large systems. It also presents the benefits of probabilistic methods for modelling renewable energy sources. The textbook describes real-life studies, discussing practical examples and providing interesting problems, teaching students the methods in a thorough and hands-on way. The textbook has chapters dedicated to reliability models for components (reliability functions, component life cycle, two-state Markov model, stress-strength model), small systems (reliability networks, Markov models, fault/event tree analysis) and large systems (generation adequacy, state enumeration, Monte-Carlo simulation). Moreover, it contains chapters about probabilistic optimal power flow, the reliability of underground cables and cyber-physical power systems. After reading this book, engineering students will be able to apply various methods to model the reliability of power system components, smaller and larger systems. The textbook will be accessible to power engineering students, as well as students from mathematics, computer science, physics, mechanical engineering, policy & management, and will allow them to apply reliability analysis methods to their own areas of expertise.
