SysLife vs. FRAM
SysLife and FRAM are to projects, which are carried out at the same time, but which have different focus and aim.  A short summary and comparison of the two projects is shown in the table below:
  SysLife FRAM
User aims To make available good condition and lifetime data. To demonstrate the use of a future-oriented analysis environment.
R&D aims To develop an analysis- and information system (SysLife) for collecting, storing and managing of data/information related to lifetime analysis and estimation of failure probability for power system components. To demonstrate how power companies can implement and utilize a future-oriented analysis environment for maintenance and reinvestment decisions for hydro and wind power based on world class methods and based on tools and results from earlier projects.
Delmål

Offering:

  • Transfer of raw data from the CMMS
  • Analysis of raw data and generation of processed data
  • Offering processed data for further analyses
  • Condition monitoring handbooks
  • Damage atlas
  • Framework for maintenance and reinvestment decisions
  • Methods and tools to determine and show utilitarian value of maintenance
  • Knowledge data base
  • Criteria and indicators for World Class Maintenance
  • Reporting experience from case studies
Target group Power companies, electricity distribution companies, equipment manufacturer, companies offering CMMSs. Power companies.

Benefit

By using project results will companies be able to take into account risk and uncertainty in maintenance management by:

  • Making better estimates of remaining lifetime and failure probability
  • Utilizing knowledge and data about the equipment condition in models for assessment of remaining lifetime and failure probability
  • Revealing trends in technical degradation
The project contribution is that power companies can utilize the potential in the results from earlier R&D projects. FRAM demonstrates how a future-oriented analysis environment for maintenance and reinvestment decisions can be built based on world class methods and based on tools and results from earlier projects.
