Description : To be able to compete successfully both at national and international levels, production systems and equipment must perform at levels not even thinkable a decade ago. Requirements for increased product quality, reduced throughput time and enhanced operating effectiveness within a rapidly changing customer demand environment continue to demand a high maintenance performance. In some cases, maintenance is required to increase operational effectiveness and revenues and customer satisfaction while reducing capital, operating and support costs. This may be the largest challenge facing production enterprises these days. For this, maintenance strategy is required to be aligned with the production logistics and also to keep updated with the current best practices. Maintenance has become a multidisciplinary activity and one may come across situations in which maintenance is the responsibility of people whose training is not engineering. This handbook aims to assist at different levels of understanding whether the manager is an engineer, a production manager, an experienced maintenance practitioner or a beginner. Topics selected to be included in this handbook cover a wide range of issues in the area of maintenance management and engineering to cater for all those interested in maintenance whether practitioners or researchers. This handbook is divided into 6 parts and contains 26 chapters covering a wide range of topics related to maintenance management and engineering.

Description : The Mine Maintenance Management Reader is an indispensable handbook for maintenance managers and supervisors, and mine and plant managers in heavy industry. Virtually every aspect of this essential function is addressed, from organizing maintenance around a plant-level production strategy, to how maintenance professionals can provide a road map for creating a more efficient organization. These critical big-picture issues are brought to life through engaging vignettes of maintenance men and women dealing with real-life, day-to-day problems and concerns. You'll learn how Charlie, a plant manager, gets into trouble when he adopts a team approach to maintenance without doing his homework. You'll see how Vivian, a haulage truck driver, sets a new standard for the quality of preventive maintenance inspections. And you'll read how Jerry, a general manager, establishes responsibilities for maintenance support that increase the production capacity and profitability of his mining operation. Author Paul D. Tomlingson draws on his 35 years of maintenance management consulting experience to craft these compelling, yet highly instructional, stories. Each reveals a powerful lesson, providing you with ideas and techniques to help solve maintenance problems you may be grappling with today.

Description : In order to satisfy the needs of their customers, network utilities require specially developed maintenance management capabilities. Maintenance Management information systems are essential to ensure control, gain knowledge and improve-decision making in companies dealing with network infrastructure, such as distribution of gas, water, electricity and telecommunications. Maintenance Management in Network Utilities studies specified characteristics of maintenance management in this sector to offer a practical approach to defining and implementing the best management practices and suitable frameworks. Divided into three major sections, Maintenance Management in Network Utilities defines a series of stages which can be followed to manage maintenance frameworks properly. Different case studies provide detailed descriptions which illustrate the experience in real company situations. An introduction to the concepts is followed by main sections including: • A Literature Review: covering the basic concepts and models needed for framework design, development and implementation. • Framework Design and Definition: developing the basic pillars of network utilities maintenance management framework. • Performance Evaluation & Maturity: focusing on the reliability concept and maturity models from different viewpoints. By establishing basic foundations for creating and maintaining maintenance managements strategies, Maintenance Management in Network Utilities acts a practical handbook for all professionals in these companies and across areas such as network development, operations management and marketing.
