Initially, he asked their advice on the production targets and adjusted them accordingly. Then, he announced two policies. First, operations would be responsible for the effective use of maintenance services. Second, operations would be accountable for complying with the approved maintenance schedule. As a result, schedule compliance improved substantially in a short time period and downtime of production equipment improved as well. More important, production targets were met more frequently. 41 © 2008 by the Society for Mining, Metallurgy, and Exploration.

Next, he should verify that planners are aware of the vital connection between timely equipment inspection and testing and their ability to plan major jobs on a week-to-week basis. A related problem could also be an insufficient number of planners. © 2008 by the Society for Mining, Metallurgy, and Exploration. All rights reserved. Electronic edition published 2009.

CHAPTER 5 Preventive Maintenance An effective preventive maintenance (PM) program successfully avoids premature equipment failure and extends equipment life. Unfortunately, few organizations realize that the ability to adequately plan major work is dependent on the quality of PM services. Preventive maintenance should have a “detection orientation” in order to find problems before they cause a failure or stoppage and in turn gain time to plan and schedule the corrective work.
