The project has consisted of criticality analysis which is a systematic and analytical method to identify and classify power plant components, equipment or systems or other production assets with the consideration of the required level of equipment redundancy. It has worked as a prejudice for the further development of maintenance and repair strategy optimisation and spare part philosophy on the basis of risks and reliability. The project has covered also development assessment of Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS), definition of KPI’s and other performance indicators as well as planning preventive maintenance actions for certain critical equipment.
