Component Life Analysis for Mining Customers

Revised: 21 March 2010

Component Life Analysis for Customers

Overview
• Goals and Objectives
• Process - Roles and Responsibilities
• Data Required – Component Life Data and Failure Analysis Information
• Minesite Life Data
• Failure and AFA Reports
• Analysis of Data and Information - Examples
• Component Life Report - Observationsand Recommendations
• Action Plan
• Minesite Participation Guidelines

Component Life Strategy
Component Life Strategy
Optimize machine major component reliability and durability throughout
all component life cycles to achieve availability and cost per ton customer
requirements.
Through all Life Cycles – New, Rebuild, and Reman

Component Life Analysis Goal

Increase Major Component Life


Reduce / Eliminate Failures

Identify causes of failure – Applied Failure Analysis (AFA)





Identify containment plan to manage and reduce risk
Implement solutions

Optimize Planned Component Rebuild (PCR) Life
–Define life targets and adjust as appropriate.



Manage PCR targets.

Benefits:

Low component life can significantly
impact machine availability

- Improved Machine Availability
- Reduced Cost per Hour / Cost per Ton
Drive Train components account for
60% +
of machine mechanical operating cost

Component Life Analysis Process & Responsibilities


Data Collection ( Dealer and Customer )
• Component Life Data and Information ( Minesite / Dealer )
• Component Life HoursData - prefer data for past 2 years.
• Failure Analysis Reports and Cause of Failure Information ( Dealer )
• Prefer AFAs over past 12 months



Analysis of Data ( Caterpillar Global Mining )
• Component Life Data
• Component Life averages, variation, and distribution
• Comparison of component life to world average
• Comparison of PCR targets to world averages
• Failure AnalysisInformation
• Identification of top causes for failures and early removals (if AFA information provided)
• Component Life Report - data summary, observations, and recommendations

• Continuous Improvement Action Plan ( Dealer / Customer )
