What is maintenance management?
Maintenance management is the process and procedure for maintaining a company’s assets, equipment and resources. The purpose of maintenance management is to ensure that production proceeds efficiently and resources are used effectively. The business objective is to more efficiently schedule work, manage costs, prolong the lifespan of assets, and ensure that processes are followed to comply with all regulations.
How can maintenance management help my business?
- Streamline company processes and protect assets.
- Less risk of machines breaking down.
- Control expenses due to better management of parts inventory.
- Maximize asset lifespan due to proper maintenance.
- Equipment running at peak performance.
- Less disruption to production, work environments, etc.
- Increase the safety of employees with proper maintenance of equipment.
- CMMS software stores information to help organizations be more prepared for inspections and audits.
What are the types of maintenance management?
- Reactive maintenance, also known as the run-to-failure strategy, is performed when assets are deliberately operated until they break down.
- Preventive maintenance is regularly scheduled inspections and maintenance done to help minimize the possibility of unexpected failures of equipment and reduce repair costs.
- Predictive maintenance is a condition-based approach to maintenance that provides warnings to maintenance managers when an equipment failure might occur.
- Reliability centered maintenance is a method of analyzing breakdowns to identify which maintenance methods will work best for each piece of machinery.
Why maintenance management important?
