Maintenance Scheduling 101
Many organizations have tried to address their maintenance scheduling woes by introducing new and sometimes very advanced technologies. The reality is that

When creating weekly schedules we had to schedule all due PMs first and then distribute the remaining labor hours according to priority. Having grown accustom to the daily regime of firefighting maintenance, I saw this as nothing more than a short-lived make-work project ; however, the new manager had other plans. His first order of business was to sit with Operations and explain what he was trying to do and th

Use a Computerized Maintenance Management System to Improve Predictive Maintenance Performance


Companies that have moved from a highly reactive environment to a more planned one notice significant improvement. A computer maintenance management or enterprise asset management system is useful tool to create a planned environment, help build accurate equipment history, and develop comprehensive analysis capability.

preventive maintenance scheduling  balance of reactive maintenance, preventive maintenance (PM), and predictive maintenance (PdM) for their particular environments. Generally, organizations that are well on their way to building a planned environment do so using a high proportion of PM as opposed to what's perceived as more expensive PdM technologies. Predictive-based technologies, however, are becoming less expensive. Today, you're seeing more general technology improvements, which change the point of optimal balance. Thus, even the more Read More

Reliability Driven Maintenance--Closing the CMMS "Value Gap"? Part Two: Reliability Driven Maintenance


Reliability driven maintenance (RDM) focuses on understanding the "asset health" to determine what maintenance work should occur and when something should be done. It enables preemptive intervention before failure occurs, whereby failure would mean that equipment is not delivering required performance regardless of whether it is actually broken down or not.

preventive maintenance scheduling  fail. Here, a time-based preventive maintenance strategy should work well. Finally, if both the cost of failure and the cost of maintenance are high, one needs to use RCM concepts and manage optimally the health of the asset to avoid failures while minimizing the maintenance cost. Only by selecting the most justified maintenance strategy one could expect optimally increased profits due to reduced costs (e.g., reduced asset replacement costs, fewer scrap products, reduced maintenance labor, materials and p Read More

Lean Maintenance: Best Practices to Turn Asset Management into a Profit Center


It’s common knowledge that asset downtime disrupts production and drives up both process and per-unit operating costs. However, executives often lose sight of this because they focus on output, not on the assets used to create it. The irony is that companies can use asset performance management not only to make more widgets, but to make each widget more profitably.

Parts inventory, preventive maintenance scheduling, trade and skill management, tool costs, breakdown management, and the like tend to dominate small parcels of the discussion. Womack, Shingo, Deming, and their compatriots would cringe at such siloed conversation because the heart and soul of contemporary lean management - in maintenance or any other endeavor - is indeed the totality of the coverage. Top-down, bottom-up, sideways - the maintenance process requires much more than Read More

Lean Asset Management--Is Preventive Maintenance Anti-Lean?


How can we determine the right maintenance strategy for a specific asset? To meet the objectives of lean, we need to evaluate the cost of failure in terms of both not meeting business objectives and any extra cost due to the need for unplanned or even emergency repairs.

Reliability Driven Maintenance--Closing the CMMS "Value Gap"? Part One: Trends and Definition


The metric of plant maintenance should now be in the ability of the plant to meet the strategic goals of the company beyond customarily expected cost savings, such as improved plant output, performance predictability, product quality, customer service, safety, environmental control, etc.

preventive maintenance scheduling  For one, an effective preventive maintenance program can improve equipment's required utilization and availability, enabling production schedules to be achieved, especially when an exorbitantly expensive equipment replacement is a no option during depressed economic times. Extending into the customer base, this applies as much to improved standards of customer service as it does to product quality. The importance of ascertaining the proper maintenance work as a result of a still ongoing plant maintenance Read More
