1 Engineering DiplomaLevel 2 Unit 7 Application of Maintenance Techniques in EngineeringIn this unit you will get involved with both maintenance procedures and carrying out of maintenance activities. This unit lends itself to support from local workplace providers so you may receive an insight into maintenance activities within a real engineering environment.You will find out about different types of maintenance, carry out routine tasks and a risk assessment for a maintenance activity.
2 Be able to carry out a risk assessment in a maintenance environment. L2 U7 Learning Outcomes:Understand different types of maintenance for engineering products, plant or equipment including the use of statistical trends.Be able to carry out routine maintenance tasks and devise a maintenance procedure.Understand the effects of poor maintenance and the range of spares and replacement parts.Be able to carry out a risk assessment in a maintenance environment.Next >
3 L2 U7 Content:The maintenance of engineering systems is crucial to keeping them running efficiently. Some maintenance is planned in advance and some is needed to repair systems at short notice.As with all engineering activities, maintenance has to be assessed for risk, cost effectiveness and procedures have to be created and followed. Statistics can be used to prepare for things in advance and to make sure spare parts are available.Next >
4 L2 U7 Content:The consequences of not maintaining engineering systems can include unhappy customers due to poor quality products and can increase the cost of any repairs that need to be carried out.In some situations poorly maintained systems can lead to damage, injury and even death. Some catastrophic air crashed caused by poor maintenance have led to the loss of hundreds of lives.Next >
5 Task 1Demonstrate knowledge of types of maintenance and carry out statistical analysisTypes of Maintenance:Describe two different types of maintenance that are carried out on engineered product, plant or equipment.Explain where these different types of maintenance procedures are used.Choose one of the above types of maintenance and justify why this is appropriate to your chosen engineered product, plant or equipment.Statistical AnalysisUse the data you have been given to analyse the trend that the data predicts. State the relevance and value of this trend.Use the data you have been given to predict the mean-time-to-failure of the equipment and explain the likely consequence.Describe how the data you have produced can be used to predict the reliability of your chosen engineered product, plant or equipment.Next >
6 Routine Maintenance Procedure Task 2Demonstrate how to carry out a routine maintenance procedure and understand the implications of maintenance.Routine Maintenance ProcedureYou have been given a maintenance procedure to carry out which includes making two adjustments to the equipment.Carry out these adjustments.The maintenance procedure requires the replacement of a part. Carry out this replacement.Carry out a diagnostic check to see if further maintenance is required.Maintenance ImplicationsDescribe two problems that might occur if the product, plant or equipment is not properly maintained.Explain and justify how the impact of these problems could be reducedNext >
7 Maintenance Procedure Task 3.Demonstrate how to carry out a risk assessment and develop a maintenance procedureRisk AssessmentYou will be given the documentation required for an engineering maintenance procedure and need to carry out a risk assessment for this procedure.Include in your risk assessment how PPE should be correctly used and stored and how health and safety regulations and warning signs should be usedMaintenance ProcedureDevise a maintenance procedure for an engineering system. The procedure should include sequence to follow, timescales, tooling/resources required, documentation to use, safety practices, relevant diagnostic routines.Spare PartsIdentify the spares required for the maintenance procedure that you have designed. Describe what would happen if appropriate stock levels were not maintained. Use a statistical method to show what appropriate levels should be maintained.End >
