Maintenance Planning And Scheduling

Maintenance planning and scheduling can nearly always improve excessive reactive maintenance.

Maintenance planning and scheduling can nearly always improve excessive reactive maintenance. Unfortunately, scheduled maintenance often takes a backseat to urgent production and maintenance issues or other priorities.    Many facilities operate primarily in a reactive mode, responding to breakdowns and problems as they arise. This is expensive in terms of both man-hours and lost production…

Reliability Centered Maintenance Principles

Reliability Centered Maintenance principles provide a function-based system for building a physical asset care program.

Reliability Centered Maintenance principles provide a function-based system for building a physical asset care program. Rather than replacing components on a set schedule whether they need it or not, RCM identifies those that affect equipment function. This allows maintenance crews to focus on avoiding the consequences of the failure of those components, ensuring that plant…

Preventive Maintenance Plan Basics

A preventive maintenance plan, when developed and executed correctly, should deliver greater productivity and lower overhead.

A preventive maintenance plan, when developed and executed correctly, should deliver greater productivity and lower overhead. Preventive maintenance is any maintenance we do to prevent further, more consequential maintenance. Efficient and effective preventive maintenance keeps production moving and minimizes downtime. When components don’t last until their next scheduled maintenance, it is all too common for…

Reliability Centered Maintenance RCM

Reliability Centered Maintenance RCM is a method of building a physical asset care program.

Reliability Centered Maintenance RCM is a method of building a physical asset care program. It is system function-based, and is generally applied on a component basis. Rather than simply replacing components on a set schedule regardless of their condition, RCM identifies those that affect equipment function. This allows maintenance crews to focus on avoiding the…

Predictive Maintenance PdM Prevents Shutdowns

Predictive Maintenance PdM is the next logical step beyond preventive maintenance for a proactive approach to maintenance execution.

Predictive Maintenance PdM is the next logical step beyond preventive maintenance for a proactive approach to maintenance execution. PdM is often synonymous with Condition Based Maintenance. This practice is the starting point for the digital transformation of your factory and the cornerstone of the IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things). Preventive Maintenance PM Vs Predictive Maintenance…
