Maintenance practices have evolved from breakdown maintenance to predictive maintenance. As maintenance practices have evolved, so have maintenance improvement programs. Each evolution added a portion of what drives maintenance value as the key element. These programs created improvements, but generally failed to achieve their full objectives. In part, this was because they focused on one driver of maintenance value and did not consider the other drivers.
This presentation will describe a pragmatic approach of maintenance improvement based on the drivers of maintenance value. It will do this by exploring the drivers of maintenance value. It will then examine the maintenance practices and improvement programs such as RCM (Reliability Centered Maintenance) and TPM (Total Productive Maintenance) and identifying which driver of maintenance value they focused on. The paper will discuss why a sustainable program needs to examine all aspects of maintenance value and describe an approach that can be used to identify and implement improvements.
