Abstract [en]

The aim of maintenance is to retain and restore the required functions of technical systems to ensure the productivity and efficiency of technical systems. However, improper maintenance, in the sense of incorrectly performed maintenance or lack of suitable maintenance activities, contributes to deterioration and, even more seriously, cause incidents and accidents. Therefore, it is important to identify hazards from occurred incidents and accidents to learn and avoid these hazards in the future. For that matter, in turn, documentation from occurred events should be done in a systematic way and then be an important part of the management system—and last, but not least, used for continuous improvement and risk reduction. This study aims to describe a process-oriented approach to analyse causes of human failures contributory to maintenance-related incidents and accidents, in order to support continuous risk reduction. The proposed methodology with supporting tools can be used for analysis purposes and guide decision making. The approach is illustrated by a case study at the Swedish railways

Note

Godkänd; 2016; Bibliografisk uppgift: Containing selected papers from the ICRESH-ARMS 2015 conference in Lulea, Sweden, collected by editors with years of experiences in Reliability and maintenance modeling, risk assessment, and asset management, this work maximizes reader insights into the current trends in Reliability, Availability, Maintainability and Safety (RAMS) and Risk Management. Featuring a comprehensive analysis of the significance of the role of RAMS and Risk Management in the decision making process during the various phases of design, operation, maintenance, asset management and productivity in Industrial domains, these proceedings discuss key issues and challenges in the operation, maintenance and risk management of complex engineering systems and will serve as a valuable resource for those in the field. ; 20151223 (andbra)
