Abstract
Predictive maintenance/inspection planning is being applied more frequency to counter the problem of component aging affecting reliability of plant components. Component aging is one of the critical issues in an increasingly competitive environment, especially in plant components built and installed during the 50s and 60s. Drawing the highest value for the predictive maintenance/inspection dollar is key is this issue for the electric utility and other production facilities. This paper discusses the basic idea of using decision analysis to tie the works of fully quantitative probabilistic engineering analysis and economic evaluation together for decision making. To illustrate this idea, specific application examples of this approach will be presented on power plant components. In addition, the concept of prioritization of multiple component maintenance/inspection projects, with maintenance budget and safety constraints for maximum net present value, will be presented.
