Abstract

Troubleshooting is one of the most tedious jobs in maintenance and required constant contact with similar problems in order have timely insight into the likely possible solutions that can aid the process of concluding on what will be the feasible solution. This research work is aimed at reducing the time that would be spent on fault tracing especially on 365KVA Caterpillar generator which uses the analyzed Fishbone diagram for Ignition System Sub-System, Fishbone diagram for Cylinder Block Assembly Sub-System, Fishbone diagram for piston and connecting rod and Fishbone diagram for Engine Cooling System Sub-System of the possible cause and effect that emanates from man, methods, measurement, material, machine and environment on the overall performance of the generator.
