Comprehensive assessment of buildings, structures and technical devices reliability of mining enterprises

The article provides a methodology for a comprehensive assessment of the reliability of buildings, structures and technical devices of mining enterprises. The methodology allows carrying out a comprehensive reliability assessment based on primary indicators, characte rizing the technical condition of mining enterprises’ production assets. Based on the analysis of regulatory documents and reporting forms of mining enterprises, indicators characterizing reliability have been established. Most of the reliability indicators relate to quality characteristics. By the method of expert assessments, the most significant indicators were identified: defects and damages, wear index, operating mode indicator and criticality index. The substantiation of the methodology for assessing the technical reliability of buildings, structures and technical devices based on the established dependencies of the implementation of failures and emergencies related to reliability indicators is presented. The proposed methodology will help the management of mining enterprises to carry out predictive analytics, which allows organizing the control of production assets with the most rational capital investments while maintaining a high level of reliability. The methodology of summary reporting on the technical condition of fixed assets of mining enterprises also includes an assessment of the degree of technical reliability of industrial assets.

Keywords: reliability of technical devices, reliability of buildings and structures, defects and damages, wear index, criticality index, readiness coefficient.
