Failure Modes to Failure Codes Paperback – 1 January 2017
Enhance your purchase
As an improvement initiative, chronic failure analysis may be the most significant benefit yet to be realized by the world of asset management. When stakeholders talk about the accuracy of their CMMS, they are really referring to the absence of good failure data. Consequently, when management requests any type of failure analysis, they are usually thinking of a verbal exercise and talking to people. They think this way because the work order only has text fields describing the problem and remedy. Without actionable data, there is no way to identify worst offenders in Pareto format. Failure Modes to Failure Codes explains exactly how to start capturing a true failure mode in support of RCM. All that’s required is the knowledge to configure the CMMS product.
If reliability centered maintenance is your goal, failure mode should be your centerpiece as this is the language of RCM.
The asset offender report (failure analytic), once implemented, provides the reliability team the ability to identify worst offenders in multiple ways. And never assume this type of report will exist out of the (CMMS) box.
As an improvement initiative, chronic failure analysis offers the largest potential benefit in support of return on asset (ROA).

The ah-ha moment in the book for me was the realization that failure information needs to be captured at component as well as asset level as the component level is where the functional failures manifest themselves and is where maintenance and repair activities mainly focused.
It's not particularly long book and at just under 100 pages it won't take long to get through it. That's a good thing so don't let it put you off, my copy is already well-thumbed. It's jam-packed with practical and actionable information and ideas with neat little illustrations on nearly every page that do a great job of articulating the ideas and concepts and CMMS configuration options. A great book and well worth investing in.
the 1st quick read of few pages makes it quite promising.
Really keen at reading it extensively
