Paper Abstract

This paper outlines the concepts of problem-modeling and provides executive summaries on the analysis of findings of field research that has been done over the last 10 years. Emphasis is placed on the actual findings as they related to trending of problem conditions within facility, and measurable results of implementing an infrared inspection program. This paper also provides reviews of overall results of problem tracking/reconciliation from multiple inspections, cost breakeven analysis results, materials and labor, identification of key equipment failure ratios and root cause failure analysis studies.
