Abstract: Port and harbor facilities generally face severe environmental conditions compared to other infrastructure. They often tend to suffer performance degradation during their service period due to various reasons including materials deterioration and damage of structural components.
The authors have proposed the strategic maintenance method for port facilities based on the life-cycle management (LCM) concept. In this paper, the fundamental concept of the computer-based program to formulate the maintenance plan for mooring facilities based on the LCM concept was described. The proposed program was composed of 4 main components in the LCM system: inspection, assessment and prediction of performance, and selection of appropriate countermeasure. The authors expect that rational and effective maintenance can be realized by the results of this research and subsequently the life-cycle cost reduction and performance maximization can be attained.
