An effective maintenance system using the analytic hierarchy process

An effective maintenance system using the analytic hierarchy process Attempts to develop a model of maintenance decision making using the analytic hierarchy (AHP). Describes problems in maintenance arising from not having clear criteria and not having robust decisions with which to maintain failing equipment. The objective being to develop a dynamic and adaptable maintenance system that utilises existing data and supports decisions accordingly. Proposes a three‐stage system that can handle multiple criteria decision analysis, conflicting objectives, and subjective judgements. Moreover, the methodology facilitates and supports a group decision‐making process. This systematic, and adaptable, approach will determine what specific actions to perform given current working conditions. The first stage involves identifying the criteria upon which engineering personnel wish to formulate a maintenance decision, or action. The second stage is to prioritise the different criteria by implementing a multiple‐criteria evaluation method. Finally, based on different criteria, machines are ranked according to criticality. This is followed by an analysis of failures in a graphical and a hierarchical format. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Integrated Manufacturing Systems Emerald Publishing

Abstract

Attempts to develop a model of maintenance decision making using the analytic hierarchy (AHP). Describes problems in maintenance arising from not having clear criteria and not having robust decisions with which to maintain failing equipment. The objective being to develop a dynamic and adaptable maintenance system that utilises existing data and supports decisions accordingly. Proposes a three‐stage system that can handle multiple criteria decision analysis, conflicting objectives, and subjective judgements. Moreover, the methodology facilitates and supports a group decision‐making process. This systematic, and adaptable, approach will determine what specific actions to perform given current working conditions. The first stage involves identifying the criteria upon which engineering personnel wish to formulate a maintenance decision, or action. The second stage is to prioritise the different criteria by implementing a multiple‐criteria evaluation method. Finally, based on different criteria, machines are ranked according to criticality. This is followed by an analysis of failures in a graphical and a hierarchical format.
