Weibull Distribution: Reliability Centered Maintenance and the Use of Bayesian networks
Keywords:Reliability, Bayesian Networks, Maintenance, Weibull distribution
This article, through the literature review, we discuss Bayesian networks and Weibull distribution to describe the processes of Reliability Centered Maintenance as well as the tools of information technology necessary for their support. To maximize asset reliability cost-effectively, maintenance should be scheduled based on the likely deterioration of an asset. Maintenance management reliability centered aims to increase the availability of the physical item in which it is applied. Since the reliability function of the quality of the program or maintenance plan is a systematic methodology that makes use of IT tools to optimize strategic actions to minimize maintenance costs. Concerning the application of reliability-centered maintenance, this paper presents considerations that allow drawing requires the use of various mathematical tools.
