AbstractThe deterioration and failures of such systems might incur safety hazards, as well as high operational costs (due to work stoppage, delays, unplanned intervention, etc.). To cope with this, preventive maintenance strategies are often adapted thereby replacing the deteriorated system before it even fails. If the deterioration of the system, or a parameter strongly correlated with the state of that system can be directly measured (via corrosion assessment, wear monitoring, etc.), and if the system stops functioning when it deteriorates beyond a given threshold, then it is appropriate to base any maintenance decisions on the actual deterioration of the system rather than on its age. And this leads to the choice of a condition-based maintenance (CBM) policy. CBM techniques provide an assessment of the system?s condition, based on data collected from the system through continuous monitoring and/or via inspections. The main intent is to determine the required maintenance plan prior to any predicted failure. Such a strategy will contribute by minimizing maintenance costs, improving operational safety and reducing the number of in-service system failures. This paper will address the merits of adapting CBM strategies in Facilities Management.
