CONTRIBUTION OF MAINTENANCE PLANS IN A UNIVERSITY LABORATORY
Goal: implement maintenance plans based on RCM in a laboratory and identify difficulties in the preparation of a maintenance plan for measuring instruments of a calibration and testing laboratory.
Design / Methodology / Approach: Survey of the general maintenance scenario in PHEI laboratories, through individual interviews, and the implementation of maintenance plans elaborated from the implementation of Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM).
Results: Adaptations of the maintenance activities carried out by the analyzed laboratory. A demonstration of the laboratory's great adherence to the ANBT NBR ISO / IEC 17025 standard, besides the possibility of improving the quality of the service.
Limitations of the investigation: The limitations are tied to the literature found on the subject and the application of maintenance plans restricted to only one university laboratory.
Practical implications: Improve the literature on maintenance plans and facilitate the practical elaboration of these plans by laboratories.
Originality / Value: Practical application of the preparation of maintenance plans for measuring instruments, not found in the literature of the subject.
