Mean time between failures (MTBF) and mean time to repair (MTTR) are two very important indicators when it comes to availability of an. The MTTR formula computes the average time required to repair failed equipment and return it to normal operations. Learn how to calculate it with Fiix. 1, MTBF and MTTR Calculator. 2. 3, Month, February, 4, Name of Machine, M_3. 5, Operation availability (min/mo), 24, 6. 7, Frequence, 8. 9, MTBF.

We have 2 options. There’s nothing management like better than seeing an improving MTBF. Equipment manufacturers are now using a modular design philosophy so parts or sub assemblies can be swapped out quickly and easily. Finally, you’ll never receive email notifications about content they create or likes they designate for your content. Management doesn’t pay attention cxlcul such a high degree of detail. Despite its importance in the performance of the processes, most managers do not make full use of these key performance indicators KPIs in their control activities.

First we need to understand how do you plant to use MTBF in the first place, in my training the formula can be quite confusing and depending on your application: Obviouslyif the equipment is used for a shorter period of time the probability of survival is higher. Why do you we need to apply weightage to the data set for equipment under process of change? From the first production date and to today if the machine is still runing ie not decommissioned yet?


In this example, only the latest 5 failure matter because the other 2 are already out of the time window, being consequently omitted or discarded.

It can be higher for electric motors since the bearing size tends to be relative to shaft dimensions, and that last size will be based on force couple and torque issues rather than the very light rotor loads. How is mean time to repair calculated? Above, we have the average time of each downtime.

You may take an exact model pump and subject it to different environments and industries and come up with different failure rates. Is it modification, operational mode change, operating parameter change, etc?

My second concern with using the constant time window to calculate MTBF etc is that, what is the most appropriate constant time windows to be used so that I can compare my MTBF data with others’ data?

Why is mean time to repair important? These lapses of time can be calculated by using a formula. MTBF is usually mgbf to a group of similar equipment, for example all the pumps in a refinery. Please see the example in Excel that I attach. If not roll up your sleeves and get to work: Do you know which English references discuss this matter at length?

The mean time between failure is not the time for which the mhtr will be expected to operat before failure.

Being aware of our limitations is the first step to eliminate them. Like Reply 0 Likes. Fundamentals of Electronic Systems Design.


With parallel components the situation is a bit more complicated: Even if it’s only a couple of mybf, it’s a good starting point. Josh, I think the example I attach is self-explanatory. MTBF value prediction is an important element in the development of products. Mtrt is a basic technical measure of the maintainability of equipment and repairable parts. If you are interested, click the button below: It was an old refinery, aroundand their failure rate was horrific, with an MTBF of around 6 months.

That is, it is the time spent during the intervention in a given process. Do you calculate operating time by subtracting the running time before the first failure and running time after the last failure? This inaccuracy can lead to bad design decisions. The two formulas Conceptual differences, different formulas! The only way out consists in performing a trade-off. Why not just calculate the mtbf since the first failure to today becasue you said the more the episode the higher the accuracy?

Another was poor alignment and there were many premature bearing failures. But the previous values of 50K hours standard and k hours by request are good estimates.

MTBF will also indicate the effectiveness of your maintenance practices and also any steps you might take to improve reliability.
