Operation & Maintenance Best Practices


Quiz Questions

1.Operations and Maintenance (O&M) are the decisions and actions regarding the control and upkeep of property and equipment.
True
False
2. Operational Efficiency represents the life-cycle, cost-effective mix of preventive, predictive, and reliability-centered maintenance technologies, coupled with equipment calibration, tracking, and computerized maintenance management capabilities all targeting reliability, safety, occupant comfort, and system efficiency.
True
False
3.Five well-defined elements of an effective O&M program include Operations, Maintenance, Engineering, Training, and Administration-OMETA.
True
False
4.A computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) is a type of management software that performs functions in support of management and tracking of O&M activities
True
False
5.Reactive maintenance can be defined as actions performed on a time- or machine-run-based schedule that detect, preclude, or mitigate degradation of a component or system with the aim of sustaining or extending its useful life through controlling degradation to an acceptable level.
True
False
6.Predictive maintenance can be defined as measurements that detect the onset of a degradation mechanism, thereby allowing causal stressors to be eliminated or controlled prior to any significant deterioration in the component physical state.
True
False
7.Infrared (IR) thermography can be defined as the process of generating visual images that represent variations in IR radiance of surfaces of objects.
True
False
8.What does PPE stand for?
Personal Protective Equipment
Professional Protective Equipment
Professional Product Equipment
None of the above
9.A measurement of the speed at which a machine or machine component is moving as it undergoes oscillating motion is called velocity.
True
False
10.New building commissioning (Cx) is a means to ensuring through design reviews, functional testing, system documentation, and operator training that systems and equipment in new buildings are operating properly.
True
False
11. Value recommissioning (VCx) is the lowest cost option that focuses on the most common opportunities, ideally incorporating them into daily operating procedures.
True
False
12.The primary goals of new building commissioning efforts are to
Ensure design intent criteria and the owner’s requirements are documented and met
Ensure systems and equipment are fully functional and operate in an integrated manner
Provide documentation on systems and equipment that will be
Verify O&M staff training needs is met
All of the above
13.Ultrasonic, or ultrasounds, are defined as sound waves that have a frequency level below 20 kHz.
True
False
14.Advanced meters can duplicate the conventional metering function of recording total consumption, plus offer enhanced functions such as time-of-use, peak demand, load survey, and power outage recording.
True
False
15.The four predominant levels of resource metering ( EPR 1996) are:
One-time/spot measurement
Run-time measurement
Short-term monitoring
Long-term monitoring
True
False
16.Short-term monitoring combines both elements of the previous two levels into a time-series record of energy or resource use: magnitude and duration.
True
False
17.Boilers are fuel-burning appliances that produce either hot water or steam that gets circulated through piping for heating or process uses.
True
False
18.A combustion analyzer samples, analyzes, and reports the combustion efficiency of most types of combustion equipment including boilers, furnaces, and water heaters.
True
False
19.Operators and maintenance technicians must conduct a visual inspection of a boiler, especially during start-ups and running operations.
True
False
20.A cooling tower is a specialized heat exchanger in which two fluids (air and water) are brought into direct contact with each other to affect the transfer of heat.
True
False
