Abstract:

The maintenance of pollution control equipment PCE at Army installations is of critical importance. If PCE breaks downs, hazardous materials may be introduced into the environment. This may lead to unfavorable health and safety consequences for workers and people living in the area, and may also incur heavy fines on the installation responsible for the emissions. This study provided an expert system PREPARE for the operation and maintenance OM of PCE. PREPARE helps combine the expertise of on-site personnel to information collected by researchers to help optimize decision making on how OM dollars can be spent most effectively.
