Maintenance Engineering Handbook
The fundamental purpose of this handbook, Maintenance Engineering Techniques, is to provide authoritative information requisite to the planning and implementation of effective maintenance engineering programs. A comprehensive discussion of maintenance engineering functions that must be accomplished in order to insure cost-effective acquisition, operation, and support of Army materiel is presented. The general method of presentation is to define a function and its importance, and then to provide basic information on when the function should be accomplished and the techniques that should be used.
Although written primarily for maintenance engineers, the handbook is structured with a wider audience in mind. The level of detail and manner of presentation make the handbook useful for the orientation and guidance of new personnel, Army contractors, and personnel in engineering disciplines such as system design, reliability, maintainability, safety, and human engineering. Additionally, management personnel may improve their understanding of the scope and importance of maintenance engineering by reading the handbook. Use of the handbook by this wider audience is encouraged. A greater understanding of maintenance engineering by the management and engineering disciplines with which it interfaces will result in more cost-effective Army materiel.
The handbook was prepared by the Orlando Division of Martin Marietta Aerospace under subcontract to the Engineering Handbook Office of the Research Triangle Institute, Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, prime contractor of the U S Army Materiel Command. Technical guidance and coordination were provided by an Ad Hoc Working Group representing the AMC Commodity Commands and agencies.

The 2005 Traffic Signal Report Card assigned a grade of D- nationally to traffic signal operations and maintenance practices. It is generally assumed that deficiencies in traffic signal operations and maintenance are the direct result of insufficient funding and staffing to optimally accomplish these tasks. While significant variability may exist among agencies in terms of system size, complexity, geography, demographics, locality, state, regional and local transportation priorities, politics and so forth; it is feasible that detailed guidance about staffing and resource based on functionality can be developed. The current guidance available is very general and not achievable for most jurisdictions.
The lack of a credible guideline for traffic signal operations and maintenance staffing and resource needs has resulted in the inefficient operation and maintenance of traffic signals on a national scale. Ineffective operation and maintenance of traffic signals has serious safety implications and contributes to thousands of hours of unnecessary traffic delays and congestion on both local and major arterial systems and road networks. An improved understanding of the relationship of performance to operations and maintenance resources expended is desired.
The objective of this FHWA sponsored project is to develop a guideline to assist agencies in developing a staffing and resource plan to effectively operate and maintain traffic signal systems. Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) and its sub-consultants, Dunn Engineering Associates and Kittelson Associates have been tasked by FHWA to conduct a study to establish these requirements. As part of this study we are conducting a series of in depth interviews to identify the operational and maintenance requirements for an ideal traffic system that must conform to real world constraints and resource limitations. The interviews are structured according to the questionnaire that follows. We appreciate your participation to help us accomplish this objective.
A handbook or aide-mémoire provides basic information about a certain subject or topic. It usually contains numerical tables or other calculations which are essential information for engineers in any field.
These are the most current handbooks from the American Society of Heating Refrigerating and Air Conditioning (ASHRAE). The four titles rotate, with each title gettting a new edition once every four years. All volumes are shelved on the first floor of the McNichols library, and they must be used in the library (They cannot be checked out).
Books are useful for background information and for getting an overview of your topic. While journal articles will have the latest research and developments, they are often focused on a very narrow aspect of a topic. So start your project by looking for books on your topic. Get an overview and learn about the terminology used to describe your topic. Once you have the "big picture" you can then use the engineering databases (Find Articles tab) to find journal articles on your topic.

Medical electrical equipment is electrically poweredequipment that exchanges energy to diagnose, treat, or monitorpatients. They are complex devices that require several measuresto ensure their safety and performance . Among the medicalelectrical equipment, mechanical ventilators stand out. Mechanicalventilator is a class of medical electrical equipment that helpspatients in the process of pulmonary ventilation, controlling, andmonitoring parameters such as pressure and flow in the airways. Critical care ventilators are used for patients dependent onmechanical ventilation, and their failure may lead to death . InBrazil, ANVISA  is responsible for medical electrical equipmentcertification before its commercialization. For ventilators, there arespecific standards that must be met to ensure safety and essentialperformance, with the general and particular requirementsprovided by ABNT NBR IEC 60601-1 [1,3]. Although the currentBrazilian medical electrical equipment certification process ensures safety and performance before commercialization, thereis no enforcement to evaluate medical electrical equipment afterthe sale . The lack of a proper maintenance policy can result ina significant rate of inoperative medical devices, with estimatesbetween 20-40% of the total Brazilian medical equipment parkin 1986 . Also, inadequate maintenance policies preclude theequipment in use to comply with the requirements necessary forits essential performance and safety. Functional tests on operatingand reactivated mechanical ventilators have shown deviations fromconfigured values of essential ventilation parameters, such as thevolume delivered per ventilation  and the fraction of oxygen inthe air inspired by the patient .
The urgent demand of ventilators during the SARS-CoV-2disease pandemic (COVID-19) led to the emergency developmentof new ventilators  and the reactivation of old equipment.Especially in this context, clinical engineering groups must obtainfrom manufacturers the information needed for maintenancemanagement to ensure the safety and performance of ventilators inhospitals over the years after the equipment has been incorporated.Commercially, medical electrical equipment documentationconsists of the user manual, usually intended for those who willuse the equipment in the hospital, and the service manual, whichprovides information for the maintenance technical team. ANVISArecommends, as a good practice in the incorporation process,that the institution maintains the service manual of the acquiredmedical electrical equipment . The service manual of a medicalelectrical equipment provides information on troubleshooting,calibration, performance tests, and part list for replacement.As such, the service manual can represent an essential tool forclinical engineering groups in training technical maintenance staff,defining preventive maintenance schedules, and evaluating medicalelectrical equipments during their lifetime. The pandemic ofCOVID-19 revealed the importance of ventilators and, in particular,the maintenance processes. In this context, the objective of thiswork was to propose a service manual structure as a reference toassist the clinical engineering team of hospitals in the process ofacquisition and maintenance of ventilator and new manufactures ofthis class of equipment in the construction of its documents. 041b061a72
