An Introduction to Predictive Maintenance, Second Edition by R. Keith Mobley President and CEO of Integrated Systems

By R. Keith Mobley President and CEO of Integrated Systems Inc.

This moment version of An advent to Predictive upkeep is helping plant, approach, upkeep and reliability managers and engineers to improve and enforce a finished upkeep administration application, delivering confirmed thoughts for on a regular basis tracking serious approach apparatus and platforms, predicting desktop mess ups, and scheduling upkeep for that reason. because the book of the 1st variation in 1990, there were many alterations in either know-how and technique, together with monetary implications, the function of a upkeep association, predictive upkeep options, numerous analyses, and upkeep of this system itself. This revision contains a whole replace of the acceptable chapters from the 1st version in addition to six extra chapters outlining the latest info available.Having already been applied and maintained effectively in hundreds and hundreds of producing and procedure vegetation around the globe, the practices designated during this moment variation of An creation to Predictive upkeep will shop vegetation and companies, in addition to U.S. as a complete, billions of greenbacks via minimizing unforeseen apparatus disasters and its resultant excessive upkeep rate whereas expanding productiveness. * A accomplished advent to a process of tracking serious commercial apparatus* Optimize the provision of procedure equipment and enormously decrease the price of upkeep* presents the capability to enhance product caliber, productiveness and profitability of producing and creation vegetation

Example text

2 EVALUATION OF THE MAINTENANCE ORGANIZATION One means to quantify the maintenance philosophy in your plant is to analyze the maintenance tasks that have occurred over the past two to three years. Attention should be given to the indices that define management philosophy. One of the best indices of management attitude and the effectiveness of the maintenance function is the number of production interruptions caused by maintenancerelated problems. If production delays represent more than 30 percent of total Role of Maintenance Organization 45 production hours, reactive or breakdown response is the dominant management philosophy.

In addition, these commodities must be of suitable quality and functionality to permit effective use of the process systems and finished product quality. The procurement function is critical to good performance of both production and maintenance. This group must coordinate its activities with both functions and provide acceptable levels of performance. In addition, they must implement and maintain standard procedures and practices that ensure optimum support for both the production and maintenance functions.

The same Catch-22 prohibits implementing formal planning, procurement, and training programs in many smaller plants. The perception is that the addition of nonrevenue-generating personnel to provide these functions would prohibit acceptable levels of financial performance. In other words, the bottom line would suffer. This view may be true to a point, but few plants can afford not to include the essentials of plant performance. In many ways, small plants have a more difficult challenge than larger plants; however, with proper planning and implementation, small plants can improve their performance Impact of Maintenance 21 and gain enough additional market share to ensure both survival and long-term positive growth.
