COMPARE is a Reliability Centred Maintenance package which enables optimum spares levels, optimum proof
test intervals and optimum replacement times to be obtained. Significant cost savings can be made
in spares and maintenance resources.
o Having too many spares carries a
cost penalty. Too few spares incurs expensive outage time. Using Markov analysis, COMPARE enables the
optimum number of spares to be chosen for any combination of lead time, repair time, failure rate, number
of active items and the degree of redundancy for that item.
o Coincident dormant failures,
otherwise protected by redundant configurations, will lead to costly outage. Too frequent proof testing,
to reveal failed redundant units, will incur a waste of maintenance resource. COMPARE enables the optimum
proof test interval to be calculated for a given outage cost, proof test cost, down time and failure rate.
o The cost of an unplanned
replacement may be much greater than the planned replacement of a part despite its not having failed.
There will be an optimum replacement time for parts having a wearout characteristic. COMPARE enables
the Weibull parameters of parts to be assessed from field or test data in order for the optimum time to

outputs for use in word processing packages.
o FARADIP (FAilure RAte Data In Perspective) provides
a failure rate data benchmark which can be used to review the field data which users apply to COMPARE
or as a source of data where generic figures are required.
