Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What does the term innovation mean?

    • A.

      Making a new gadget

    • B.

      Being clever

    • C.

      Creating new customer value

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Creating new customer value
    Explanation
    Creating new customer value – being clever or creating new gadgets that do not create value are not innovations

    What is the definition of Criticality?

    • A.

      Severity of the effects times the frequency

    • B.

      Availability divided by instances of breakdowns

    • C.

      Always defined as the production constraint

    • D.

      Reliability divided by Availability

    Correct Answer
    A. Severity of the effects times the frequency
    Explanation
    Criticality is defined as the severity of the effects times the frequency of occurrence.

    What is the definition of FMECA?

    • A.

      Fundamental Mechanical Effects Crisis Actions

    • B.

      Fully Mechanical Effective Critical Analysis

    • C.

      Failure Modes and Effects Criticality Analysis

    • D.

      Functional Maintenance Evaluation Component Archives

    Correct Answer
    C. Failure Modes and Effects Criticality Analysis
    Explanation
    FMECA stands for Failure Modes and Effects Criticality Analysis. It is a systematic approach used to identify and prioritize potential failures in a system, product, or process. FMECA involves analyzing the various failure modes, their potential effects, and the criticality of those effects. By conducting FMECA, organizations can proactively identify and address potential failures, leading to improved reliability, safety, and performance.

    Who should be on the Criticality Equipment Ranking Team?

    • A.

      6 Maintenance Workers and the Plant Manager

    • B.

      Only Operations

    • C.

      Finance, Health and Safety, and Maintenance

    • D.

      Maintenance, Operations, QA, Health and Safety, and Finance

    Correct Answer
    D. Maintenance, Operations, QA, Health and Safety, and Finance
    Explanation
    The five disciplines should at least be represented, QA, Maintenance, Operations, EH&S, and Finance

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Vibration Analysis works best when applied on?

    • A.

      Non-essential Support Assets

    • B.

      Critical Rotating Equipment

    • C.

      Vessels and Tanks

    • D.

      Pumps

    Correct Answer
    B. Critical Rotating Equipment
    Explanation
    Vibration Analysis is a technique used to detect and analyze vibrations in machinery and equipment. It is particularly effective when applied to critical rotating equipment. This is because rotating equipment, such as motors, pumps, and turbines, are prone to wear, misalignment, and imbalance, which can result in excessive vibrations. By monitoring and analyzing these vibrations, potential issues can be identified and addressed before they lead to equipment failure or downtime. Therefore, focusing on critical rotating equipment allows for proactive maintenance and ensures the reliability and performance of the machinery.

    What is the definition of MTTR?

    • A.

      Maintenance Tracking and Testing Regimen

    • B.

      Mean Testing To Replace

    • C.

      Mean Time To Repair

    • D.

      Mechanical Testing and Tracking Results

    Correct Answer
    C. Mean Time To Repair
    Explanation
    Mean Time to Repair – understanding how long a repair takes can help schedule intervals of collections coupled with other factors
