Furthermore, you want to know which subassemblies in each item of equipment are critical to the operation of the machine. From this information, you can decide which spares to hold on site in which to leave us outside purchases. The equipment criticality also determines what level of preventative maintenance to use, what type and amount of condition, monitoring to use and what type and amount of observation is required from the operators. You can also use it to justify online monitoring systems to protect against catastrophic failure. The Western approach to determine criticality is often to use either reliability centered maintenance or risk based maintenance to determine consequences of failure and then address the appropriate response to prevent the failure. The Japanese chemical manufacturing company I visited had a novel way of determining their equipment criticality.
