|Coordinator||Luleå tekniska universitet - Avd Drift, underhåll och akustik|
|Funding from Vinnova||SEK 500 000|
|Project duration||September 2015 - March 2016|
|Venture||The strategic innovation programme for mining and metal recovery – STRIM|
Purpose and goal
The aim of this research project is to study the feasibility of applying Reliability Centred Maintenance (RCM) in automated mining machineries. The objective of this project is to improve the reliability and availability of automated mining systems by preventing unexpected failures and optimising predictive maintenance to achieve the safety with lowest life cycle cost using RCM methodology.
Results and expected effects
- The state of the art of RCM implementation in different other industries - Maintenance challenges in automated mining machinery - Developing a new approach to select the most critical subsystems of machine - Suggesting a guidelines for RCM implementation in automated mining machinery
Approach and implementation
The suggested guideline will be applied and implemented in full scale project in the next step.
