The profitability of any industry, in any technological sector - power, process, manufacturing, mineral extraction, transport, communication, etc - will be profoundly influenced by the reliability and performance of the plant which it uses. It is therefore vital that all possible measures are taken to maximise the productivity in use, and to minimise the maintenance costs and the downtime, of that plant. This book explains, in a clear and concise manner, the various organization structures that are needed for doing just that, the information systems with which those structures will need to be resourced, and the steps that will have to be taken in order to bring those structures and systems into being. The author, Anthony Kelly, an experienced international consultant and lecturer on this subject, calls his approach BUSINESS-CENTRED MAINTENANCE (BCM) because it springs from, and is driven by, the identification of business objectives, which are then translated into maintenance objectives and which underpin the maintenance strategy formulation. For the first time maintenance management is analysed from the perspective of the whole company and thus makes sense not only technologically but also in economic and business terms.

Managing Systems and Documentation addresses the main systems necessary for the successful operation of a maintenance organization, such as performance control, work control and documentation. It shows how they can be modelled, their function and operating principles, and the main problems encountered in operation. It is the third of three stand-alone companion books with the aim of providing better understanding of maintenance operations, in order to identify problems and prescribe effective solutions. This is one of three stand-alone volumes designed to provide maintenance professionals in any sector with a better understanding of maintenance management, enabling the identification of problems and the delivery of effective solutions. * The third of three stand-alone companion books, focusing on the main systems necessary for the successful operation of a maintenance organization * Covers the maintenance of plant, production and operations assets in industry and service sectors, including manufacturing, food and process engineering, minerals and mining, transport, power and IT * Includes review questions, exercises and case studies * Clearly specified objectives and learning outcomes are given for each chapter, including a route map to link each chapter to the rest of the topics covered

Devising optimal strategy for maintaining industrial plant can be a difficult task of daunting complexity. This book aims to provide the plant engineer with a comprehensive and systematic approach, a framework of guidelines, for tackling this problem, i.e. for deciding maintenance objectives, formulating equipment life plans and plant maintenance schedules, designing the maintenance organisation and setting up appropriate systems of documentation and control. The author, Anthony Kelly, an experienced international consultant and lecturer on this subject, calls his approach BUSINESS-CENTRED MAINTENANCE (BCM) because it springs from, and is driven by, the identification of business objectives, which are then translated into maintenance objectives and which underpin the maintenance strategy formulation. For the first time maintenance management is analysed from the perspective of the whole company and thus makes sense not only technologically but also in economic and business terms.

A broad-ranging study of comparative environments for information systems (IS) maintenance. Considers alternative strategies for management of the maintenance process, including alternative approaches to organization design, task definition and assignment, work technique, and policies for coordination and control. The basis of this book is the field studies (based on analysis of a dozen IS organizations) from which have been developed a set of cases on IS maintenance. These twelve cases provide insight into the real-life problems--and solutions--of IS maintenance. Also considers summarizes the main concerns of IS maintenance and offers specific direction for management and further research.

Rules of Thumb for Maintenance and Reliability Engineers will give the engineer the “have to have” information. It will help instill knowledge on a daily basis, to do his or her job and to maintain and assure reliable equipment to help reduce costs. This book will be an easy reference for engineers and managers needing immediate solutions to everyday problems. Most civil, mechanical, and electrical engineers will face issues relating to maintenance and reliability, at some point in their jobs. This will become their “go to” book. Not an oversized handbook or a theoretical treatise, but a handy collection of graphs, charts, calculations, tables, curves, and explanations, basic “rules of thumb” that any engineer working with equipment will need for basic maintenance and reliability of that equipment. • Access to quick information which will help in day to day and long term engineering solutions in reliability and maintenance • Listing of short articles to help assist engineers in resolving problems they face • Written by two of the top experts in the country

This second edition of An Introduction to Predictive Maintenance helps plant, process, maintenance and reliability managers and engineers to develop and implement a comprehensive maintenance management program, providing proven strategies for regularly monitoring critical process equipment and systems, predicting machine failures, and scheduling maintenance accordingly. Since the publication of the first edition in 1990, there have been many changes in both technology and methodology, including financial implications, the role of a maintenance organization, predictive maintenance techniques, various analyses, and maintenance of the program itself. This revision includes a complete update of the applicable chapters from the first edition as well as six additional chapters outlining the most recent information available. Having already been implemented and maintained successfully in hundreds of manufacturing and process plants worldwide, the practices detailed in this second edition of An Introduction to Predictive Maintenance will save plants and corporations, as well as U.S. industry as a whole, billions of dollars by minimizing unexpected equipment failures and its resultant high maintenance cost while increasing productivity. A comprehensive introduction to a system of monitoring critical industrial equipment Optimize the availability of process machinery and greatly reduce the cost of maintenance Provides the means to improve product quality, productivity and profitability of manufacturing and production plants

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.
