“ You cannot expect to meet the challenges of today with yesterday’s tools, and expect to be in business tomorrow”
In today’s world Contemporary businesses face a unique set of challenges, which require more capital injection against a backdrop of increasing operational costs. Some of these challenges range from disruptive technology, growing size of business facilities, expanded business operations with an international focus, increasing demand for quality from users, demand for more efficiency to meet shifting user expectations and many others.
Faced with these challenges, it is important for every business to adopt a new approach starting with the basics. This is where a Reliability, Availability and Maintainability (RAM) system comes into place. There is general agreements that as companies expand, asset management and operations is becoming a nightmare.
If a constituent component is failing, then it is logical that it will have an impact on the overall performance hence the need to determine the actual quantification of this impact. Quantitative analysis of reliability and recommendation of the best way to achieve optimal reliability levels is also part of a RAM process.
Once the RAM analysis is complete, there is more data to rely on in decision making. The data generated will also come in handy in improving overall system efficiency, which is what every business today needs. Ultimately, RAMs leads to optimal performance and this improves the bottom-line. Identifying the weak links in the system using concrete data leads to gradual improvement.
It improves the quality of decision making at every step of a system’s lifecycle (Bid / Proposal, Acquisition, Design, and Sustainment / Asset Management)
Maintenance Aware Design, is an engineering risk management and decision support solution that brings Reliability, Availability, Maintenance and Safety (RAMS) into the product lifecycle. MADe part of Siemens Simcenter 1D solution developed by PHM Technology is an advanced engineering software which can predict the design, safety, reliability and health management of advanced complex systems in various industry application.
MADe uses simulation techniques to consistently identify and mitigate engineering risk based on the potential technical, capability, and economic consequences. It does this concurrently with the design process to ensure that safety and reliability problems are identified early and considered throughout the development process (vs just before going to manufacturing) so can be resolved before they are designed into the product.
