Failure Distribution of the University Hostel Building

Yuseni Ab Wahab and Abd Samad Hasan Basari
Abstract—In University hostel maintenance, failure of the component and equipment of University Hostel building became have a major impact on the high cost of university. Therefore, there is a need to have an optimal maintenance strategy such as replacement, repair and inspection. Before that, if any optimal maintenance strategy can be implemented failure distribution and the parameters of the hostel building component need to be identified. The main objective in this paper is to propose a parameter failure distribution for University Hostel building maintenance management. The method proposesapproachGoodness of a Distribution Fit and Maximum Likelihood Estimator (MLE) techniques in identifying the failure distribution and the parameters for hostel building component. The approach proposed can improve maintenance engineers to use failure data as well as in maintenance optimisation analysis. The paper starts by introducing the application of MLE techniques to identify the best failure fit distribution and its parameters. It follows by numerical examples to determine whether the failure distribution parameters are applicable to be applied in maintenance optimisation analysis. This is carried out by approach with a case study.

Index Terms—Maximum likelihood estimator, goodness of a distribution fit and failure distribution.
