Dynamic maintenance requirements analysis in asset management
In this paper we propose that maintenance requirements analysis should be considered in the context of a dynamic business environment. Consequently, maintenance requirements analysis must be designed to adapt to changing asset circumstances. Further more, this adaption should be multidimensional in that the analysis needs to adapt to events in the life of the asset and additionally needs to adapt to the resources available for maintenance planning. Documentation of changes to the maintenance requirements needs to be mandated and based on updates to the existing master document. A consequence of our view is that a dynamic process is required in organisations for the review of maintenance requirements analysis. We describe how such a process might be specified.
