M440 presents concepts and software tools that you could use to help your organization:
Understand the array of methodologies that can be applied for repairable systems analysis and determine the approaches that will be most effective for the data you have and the objectives you wish to achieve.
Identify critical components (or failure modes) and determine the most effective ways to improve system performance through design improvements and/or maintenance planning.
Evaluate potential maintenance strategies and calculate optimum PM intervals and/or overhaul times.
Use simulation to obtain estimated performance metrics that can facilitate decision-making in a variety of areas, such as scheduling planned maintenance, planning for spares, identifying bottlenecks in production throughput and estimating life cycle costs.
