Technical Services

EUROMAT GmbH renders the following services

1. FMEA (Failure Mode Effect and Critical Analysis)

  • By means of a systematic analysis, the aim here is to determine possible malfunctions of components or assemblies, by means of a systematic analysis, and to arrive at information about the impact of a failure.

2. BITA (Built-in Test Analysis)

  • A BITA serves the purpose of enabling expedient fault detection. This involves placing a test point at critical locations, i.e. wherever failure of a component might have a severe impact, for instance, where a built-in test unit intervenes to detect failure early on.

3. MTBF (Mean Time Between Failure); MTTR (Mean Time To Repair)

  • These (and other identifying features of a device) are important for determining failure probability. By means of appropriate measures (e.g. increasing the MTBF of some (or one) critical components), the availability of a device, an assembly or a system might be enhanced substantially. By contrast, a considerable cost saving with an unchanging device MTBF, for instance, can be achieved by means of targeted MTBF analysis of components or assemblies.

4. LORA (Level Of Repair Analysis)

  • A corresponding analysis is capable of determining whether, with a specific after-sales service organisation, repair of an assembly will cost less than replacement. Repair can also be optimised by this analysis by virtue of the fact that replacement etc. is dispensed with for specific assemblies and redundancies are either created, or failure can be compensated by means of applicable service activities (e.g. regular replacement after specific operating times) in conjunction with MTBF analyses.

5. LSA (Logistic Support Analysis)

  • This process, which was originally developed for the defence sector in the USA, serves to analytically consider the utilisation phase and to reflect upon development. Basically, utilisation of a system/device is analysed and, where applicable, is simulated (e.g. quantity in use, places of use, customer organisation, repair, availability of spare parts, training, cost etc. and conclusions are drawn on the basis of diverse parameters (e.g. utilisation time, costs, modernisation etc.) and, wherever necessary, development is optimised by corrective measures.
  • To some extent, EUROMAT GmbH enhances and applies the processes described above, as well as further proven processes, to improve the availability and cost of device and system maintenance or to optimise reliability in relation to cost/benefit criteria.
  • Moreover, we can very accurately determine the service life cost of devices or systems with LCCA (Life Cycle Cost Analysis).
