Maintainability analysis is a part of Reliability, Availability, and Maintainability (RAM) analysis that is used to analyse the plant maintenance data at operational phase in order to ensure the smooth running of a plant operation. Maintainability analysis plays a big role in detecting which subsystems and equipments that contribute the highest downtime and Mean Time to Repair (MTTR) in a system. By recognizing the problems, it helps in preventing any unnecessary maintenance plan to be performed on the less critical equipments and subsystem thus, reducing the plant maintenance cost. The study is conducted due to the lack of software that can perform the maintainability analysis since the maintenance plan is mostly focused on reliability analysis instead of maintainability analysis. The objectives of the study are to develop a framework that can capture maintenance data from the plant and to develop a computer-based toolkit from the developed framework. Maintainability analysis is often abandoned due to the tedious process in extracting the right information needed from the various plant maintenance data. Therefore, a toolkit that can perform the maintainability analysis of the plant maintenance data is needed. The project uses Gas Compression Train (GCT) system maintenance data in the Gas Processing Plant (GPP) as the ground for the analysis to take place. The analysis is done by developing a toolkit by using Visual Basic Application (VBA) of Macros in the Microsoft Excel that aims for a user-friendly interface with a thorough analysis of maintainability. The output is the exploratory analysis that is presented in the form of histogram, pie charts, pareto, and trend charts.
