Open Access research that is exploring the innovative potential of sustainable design solutions in architecture and urban planning...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Architecture based within the Faculty of Engineering.

Research activity at Architecture explores a wide variety of significant research areas within architecture and the built environment. Among these is the better exploitation of innovative construction technologies and ICT to optimise 'total building performance', as well as reduce waste and environmental impact. Sustainable architectural and urban design is an important component of this. To this end, the Cluster for Research in Design and Sustainability (CRiDS) focuses its research energies towards developing resilient responses to the social, environmental and economic challenges associated with urbanism and cities, in both the developed and developing world.

Abstract

Maintenance is now considered to be a cost effective rather than a forced and unnecessary option for companies Therefore, more innovative maintenance techniques such as preventive and predictive methodologies are developed alongside their corrective counterparts. As a result, numerous maintenance policies using predictive and preventive tasking systems have been developed such as the Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM), Total Productive Maintenance (TPM), Condition Based Maintenance (CBM) and Risk Based Inspection (RBI) . In this paper, full literature review has been carried out on most commonly used maintenance systems for offshore and marine industry. This paper introduces an innovative business and reliability based maintenance framework called Business Oriented Reliability Based Maintenance (BORM). Thus, this paper discusses a variety of tools and concepts developed in the industry in more detail. Additionally, it discusses the mathematics behind the Bayesian Belief Network (BBN) tool of as part of the BORM methodology and introduces a BBN case study on Subsea control system. Finally, it recommends possible future work in order to improve this framework.
