A matrix that plots the relationship (correlation) between the condition and energy efficiency of assets (or facilities) which is represented as a scatter plot.
The primary purpose of the condition-energy correlation is listed below:
The condition-age matrix is comprised of two dimensions, as follows:
The Horizontal Axis
The horizontal (x-axis) is comprised of the following condition grades:
FCI (x) - BEPI (y)
The Vertical Axis
the following concepts are pertinent to the development of hte vertical (y) axis on this matrix:
The Four Quadrants
Listed below are the four quadrants that make up the condition-energy matrix:
Listed below are the key steps in the methodology to derive and analyze the condition-age matrix:
Listed below are the five patterns that can potentially be discerned in the scatter plot data:
Listed below are some of the merits and advantages of the condition-energy matrix:
Included below are some of the asset management principles to be considered relative to facilities in different locations on the condition-priority matrix:
