Seminar: Strategic Maintenance Planning



Maintenance is a high leverage contributor to business profitability, through its impact on equipment capacity, product quality, safety, health and the environment, and the cost of production.

The results and benefits from implementing a world-class maintenance operation should yield a significant improvement in plant profit, as well as many intangible benefits such as enhanced customer satisfaction, employee pride, and vendor relations.

Maintenance planning is fundamental to the success of operations. If it is your aim to have a world-class enterprise, the maintenance organization and strategy have a critical role to play in this mission. Driven from business goals, such a strategy cannot be seen as separate from other functions, but rather as an intrinsic part of a complete approach to high-performance operation.

The business goals will place organizational, as well as technical demands on the enterprise. The strategy, therefore, has to integrate and guide the implementation of technical and managerial strategies at all organizational and process levels.

The strategy/philosophy must represent the very best technology, procedures, and practices available, relevant to the business goals of the organization. The strategy must define the processes/procedures/practices required to achieve the highest possible degree of maintenance management and maintenance effectiveness, whilst minimizing total life-cycle costs of new assets and current operating costs of existing assets.
