Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


The study was undertaken to examine how documented systems are used to aid the activities that were applied to ameliorate physical assets reliability. A documented system referred to as a quality build plan was applied in a re-build workshop to give guidance to repair and assembly procedures in a workshop set up. The equipment that were included in the workshop comprised of gearboxes and pumps, of which detailed steps of repair or assembly had to be followed in order to ascertain correct functionality and reliability. The study sought to unveil the effect of the composition of the documented quality build plan and how significant the impact was, on the ensuing physical assets reliability in the occasion of full compliance or deviation from the specified actions. The specified actions of the quality build plans were assessed to reveal their impacts on the resultant physical assets reliability.
