A life-cycle maintenance methodology with environmental, health and safety considerations.
Suppen, N., et.al., Proceedings First International Symposium on Environmentally Conscious Design and Inverse Manufacturing, (1999), p. 875-879.
An excellent way to bring environmental concerns into account in the process activities of a manufacturing facility is to consider them as part of the scope of maintenance engineering. This paper presents a methodology for incorporating environmental considerations, human health and safety issues in maintenance engineering in each of the process life cycles using an overall reliability analysis. This methodology can help to make a better planning and implementation of maintenance activities.
