This paper discusses how equipment failure history stored in a computerised maintenance management system has been effectively used through the application of Weibull analysis to give an indication of the component failure mechanism (e.g., infant mortality, random failure, premature wear-out). Weibull analysis was also used to predict plant and equipment reliability by calculating the number of failures expected to occur in the future using Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF). Examples are given for component, equipment, and system failure studies for crude oil pump stations shipper pumps, steam turbines, and natural gas liquidation compression trains.
