Unit-1 Introduction. Need and Importance of Maintenance Management Maintenance The steps involved in maintenance are: • • • • • To understand the current maintenance process To determine if the current process suits the task To list out process improvement actions To plan action in order to perform the required tasks To commit resources to execute the task as per the time frame 5 PREVIOUS HOME CNEXT onfidential .

Need and Importance of Maintenance Management Objectives The main objectives of maintenance management involve: • • • • • • • Planning maintenance activities and evolving policies Creating an organisational structure for the department Organising maintenance resources Directing execution of maintenance plan Controlling the performance of maintenance activities Defining processes for performing maintenance Budgeting and controlling costs PREVIOUS HOME CNEXT onfidential .Unit-1 Introduction.

Need and Importance of Maintenance Management Classification Maintenance process can be classified into five groups: Maintenance Group 1: Maintenance is carried out while the equipment is running. Group 4: Equipment or machine has failed and is readily available for maintenance. Group 2: Maintenance is carried out on an idle machinery. Group 3: Machine or equipment is taken out of the production for scheduled maintenance. Group 5: The equipment has failed but it is waiting for maintenance .

Unit-1 Introduction. Need and Importance of Maintenance Management Need and Importance The factors that have created the need for maintenance management include: • • • • • • • Higher operating costs Environmental concerns Safety issues Warranty and liability factors Regulatory matters Ageing of plant Increased cost of replacement 8 PREVIOUS HOME CNEXT onfidential .

Need and Importance of Maintenance Management Importance The implementation of maintenance management is inevitable because of the following: • Break down of machinery hinder the performance of the production process • Repair of machinery is expensive once it breaks down • Quality of the product suffers if machines malfunction • Workers become idle during breakdown and repair time • Machine failure may lead to accidents in some cases 9 PREVIOUS HOME CNEXT onfidential .Unit-1 Introduction.

Unit-1 Introduction. Need and Importance of Maintenance Management Organisational Objectives The organisational objectives achieved by a good maintenance management are as follows: • • • • • • Reduction in the loss of productive time Minimum repair time and cost Optimum use of resources and facilities Extend the life of costly capital assets Provide effective and efficient use of maintenance personnel Improve the quality of productive assets 10 PREVIOUS HOME CNEXT onfidential .

Need and Importance of Maintenance Management Functions The functions of the maintenance management include: • • • Maintenance of buildings and services Inspection and lubrication of machinery and equipments Maintenance of utilities and distribution • • • Installations of new equipments Alterations to the assets for ease of work Maintenance of existing plant and machinery 11 PREVIOUS HOME CNEXT onfidential .Unit-1 Introduction.

Unit-1 Introduction. Need and Importance of Maintenance Management Maintenance Policies Highlights of a good maintenance policy involve: • • • • Encouraging the right maintenance practices Providing the backup for machines evolved in critical operations Replacing parts before they are expected to fail Ensuring proper training of the machine operators • • Designing provisions machines for maintainability and quick repair Enhancing staff capability factor and thus building flexibility for cross functional activities • • Stocking adequate spare parts to reduce downtime Improving process for reduced wear and stress on machines 12 PREVIOUS HOME CNEXT onfidential .

Need and Importance of Maintenance Management Capability Factors Factors enhancing the capability and effectiveness of maintenance include: • • • Work management policy Well structured training strategy Optimal resource management • • • • Quality assurance in all activities Outsourcing plan and procedures Commitment of the maintenance personnel Supervisory role • Process improvement and measurement 13 PREVIOUS HOME CNEXT onfidential .Unit-1 Introduction.
