Seminar about "Failure-based Maintenance Decision Support Model in Small and Medium Industries using Decision Making Grid Model" at Faculty of Computing in Rabigh


Dr. Burhanuddin Aboobaider presented a seminar about " Failure-based Maintenance Decision Support Model in Small and Medium Industries using Decision Making Grid Model " at Faculty of Computing and Information Technology in Rabigh on Monday 06/2/2012 at 12:00 noon. Faculty members attended the seminar. The following is the brief of the seminar:
Overtime, industries have to control production cost in order to maintain good profit margin. When equipment not well maintained, their performance and productivity decreased. Maintenance department as an imperative unit in industries should attain all maintenance data, process information instantaneously, and subsequently transform it into a useful decision. Then act on the strategies to increase machineries productivity. Previous
research shows Decision Making Grid (DMG) and Fuzzy Inference System (FIS) are able to identify strategies for maintenance decision. In our research, we use Labib (2008) approaches to extract top ten problematic machines using structured query language and analyze them with DMG model in the production floor. In this seminar, we will demonstrate on how to reveal risk factors i.e. frequency of failures and downtime of the machines. Next we recommended maintenance strategies i.e. operate to failure, service level upgrade,
condition-based maintenance, design-out maintenance, total productive maintenance and reliability centered maintenance for one of the food processing factories in Malaysia. We extracted data from food processing factory's database. We analyze the data using DMG and FIS, then provide maintenance strategies to the maintenance managers. From the experimental study, we have validated that breakdowns reduced tremendously with the given strategies using MDG model. We proposed DMG to be embedded in Computerized Maintenance Management System for future research work in order to generate promising result in the manufacturing plant.
