Abstract [en]

Maintainability is key part of Reliability, Availability, Maintainability and Safety (RAMS) estimation and prediction in complex assets. Indeed, availability calculation comprises accurate estimation of maintainability and frequently, it is just a time stamp for mean time to repair (MTTR) estimations. However, maintainability is a human related figure where the skill, capabilities, tools and the design of the asset play key role in its performance. The aim of this article is to describe the effects of ergonomists’ contribution during maintainability process for system/products design. System designer thinking in system and its subsystem in a way of technical functionality. On the other hand, ergonomists are expertise in human capability and limitation. If human become a part of system than their interface and interaction become crucial factors in a success of system performance and its sustainability. In this paper, it has discussed three main issues that help the process of maintainability design. These issues are safety, task analysis and risk analysis. It has also touched reliability engineer’s task to increase Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE). These issues are explained via a case study from a manufacturing industry.
