This research aimed to establish the power transformer fault management system by applying Sustainable Industrial Management Engineering (SIME.) method. The research tools were electrical and chemical testing. As power transformer is usually huge, when it is damaged the possible way to manage such damage is to send such power transformer to the manufacturer’s plant for repair which requires long period of time and high costs of repair. As a result, the researcher therefore establish the power transformer fault management system as a tool for assessing damage to decide whether power transformer repair should be instead done at the power station or not in order to decrease the number of power transformer returned to the manufacturing plant for repair. This would eventually help reduce costs and time for repairing power transformer and allows faster period of reuse of power transformer concomitantly. According to the result, it would found that the power transformer fault management system by applying Sustainable Industrial Management Engineering (SIME) method could be used as guidance for decision making to have power transformers repaired at the power station as much as possible. This could help reduce average time spent for repair by 84.44 percent with the cost reduction by 68.62 percent when comparing to returning power transformers to the manufacturing plant. This could also be applied in planning for power transformer maintenance prior to the occurrence of any damage to power transformers further.
