Nowadays, the US industry has approximately three hundred billion bucks being spent on the plant operations and maintenance, with some eighty percent of those funds spent on the correction of the chronicle failures of machines and systems, plus people. The machines are systems are becoming even more complex - as a consequence, subject problem can worsen; therefore, quite clear and strongly pressing need exists to establish the equipment management programs incorporating the considerations that would be essential to the effective maintenance. This book will present readers with an effective strategy of preservation of the equipment function, avoiding the negative consequences of the failures, and also ensuring the productive capacity of the equipment. Subject strategy is incorporating human errors, safety matters, plus the quality and software maintenance, with all other considerations directly relating to the reliability/maintainability of the equipment, and costing. The author of this volume has successfully gathered the information from different technical sources, integrating the very latest technological developments achieved in mechanical engineering into the readily available practical plans, specifically prepared for optimizing the maintenance activities, paying attention to the extension of the working life of the subject equipment, and minimization of the failures...
