Title: Failure Mode and Effect Analysis in Telecommunications Systems of Oil Industry in Sudan
Author: Mohamed, Nazik Abdel Gadir Bushara
Abstract: In industries like oil and gas, networks availability is the first requirement to consider when designing systems since even short interruptions can cause considerable economic losses. Thus understanding what availability is; what would affect it and how to calculate it is vital. The objective of this thesis is to study the reliability of the telecommunications systems used in the oil industry in Sudan (taking Petro Energy Company as a case study) and taking the system availability as a measurement of reliability to study the effect of system unavailability on the industry. The thesis followed the Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (FMEA) methodology where failure incidents of the telecommunications system during 2014 were collected and classified then according to the system network topology, overall system availability and total down time were calculated. The effect of system unavailability on all industry aspects was studied. The impact of telecommunications system failure was found to be serious when studied; it can reach the level of production loss which means revenue loss in the worst cases. The outcome of this research project can be presented to the concerned company for better understanding of company system availability and recommendations can be made for improvements.
