The Process Reliability module allows users to
analyse daily production data using Weibull analysis plots. These
plots identify systematic and reliability losses by recognising
trends in the production data.
The Process Reliability module allows production data to be
compared from different plants or different time periods.
Production data may also be transferred from simulated production
profiles created from within the AvSim module. This allows
production data from potential plant improvements to be compared
with existing production data.
The grid in the right-hand window is used to display production
data. The data will normally be daily production values but AWB
does not restrict you to a particular time interval. Data may be
imported using the Windows clipboard (copy and paste) or may be
typed into the grid by hand. The grid representing Process set
items has several columns. One column is used to specify the
capacity value (the average production capacity for the day). Other
columns indicate whether the data item is currently disabled, how
many days were associated with the capacity level suspended at this
time and the record date.
As data items are entered into the grid, points will
be plotted in the cumulative probability graph. These points
represent the estimated cumulative probability values for each
recorded capacity value.
