This handbook is divided into 6 parts and contains 26 chapters covering a wide range of topics related to maintenance management and engineering. The further education of technical grades, craft workers, and apprentices is usually achieved through joint schemes, sponsored by employers in conjunction with the local education authority. 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. Taylor introduced the concept of scientific management time study and division of labor , while Frank and Lilian Gilbreth founded the concept of modern motion study techniques. University of Management and Technology C-2 Johar Town Lahore-54600 Pakistan abdulraouf umt. Maintenance costs seem to rise remarkably, so more and more contractors are brought in for larger jobs that used to get done in-house.
The chapter describes three types of organization structures. Chapter 25 by Dhillon presents various important aspects of human reliability and error in maintenance. Maintenance is an important concept in the context of warranties. The weaknesses of this structure are: it has slow response time to environmental changes; may cause delays in decision making and hence longer response time; leads to poor horizontal coordination among departments and involves a restricted view of organizational goals. This handbook will also be an invaluable resource for researchers and graduate students working in this area.
Dissatisfaction with maintenance performance by the organization or plant management; 2. However, productivity is often relegated to second rank, and ignored or neglected by those who influence production processes Singh et al. One of the major features of this volume is its comprehensive treatment of the maintenance management function; in addition to chapters which outline the operation of the various plant equipment there is specialist advice on how to get the most out of that equipment and its operators. Topics covered include overview of budgeting and standard costing systems, budgeting framework for planned maintenance, a methodology for developing standard costs and capturing actual costs for planned maintenance jobs, and how detailed cost variances could be generated to assess the cost efficiency of planned maintenance jobs. Improvement in maintenance productivity can be achieved through reduction in maintenance materials as well as reductions in projects, outages and overhaul savings Wireman, 2007. The issues and criteria presented in the above section may help organizations in designing or re-designing their maintenance organization.
And you'll read how Jerry, a general manager, establishes responsibilities for maintenance support that increase the production capacity and profitability of his mining operation. Operate utilities and conserve energy. Finally Chapter 26 by Nicholas deals with human error in maintenance — a design perspective. Liyanage, Jay Lee, Christos Emmanouilidis, and Jun Ni 20. Provides more flexibility and improves utilization of resources such highly skilled crafts and special equipment and therefore results in more efficiency; 2. Virtually every aspect of this essential function is addressed, from organizing maintenance around a plant-level production strategy, to how maintenance professionals can provide a road map for creating a more efficient organization.
This handbook is divided into 6 parts and contains 26 chapters covering a wide range of topics related to maintenance management and engineering. A summary of the chapter is provided in Section 1. Dr Ben-Daya's research interests are: mathematical programming; production and inventory control; scheduling; and maintenance engineering and quality control. The Handbook of Maintenance Management and Engineering features both fundamental and applied works from across the whole maintenance spectrum. Special thanks go to Dr. Maintain and update records; and 6.
Using applications and examples which reflect the growing importance of maintenance, this book presents readers with an inter-disciplinary perspective on topical issues which affect any organization engaged in manufacturing, process, or service industry, no matter how large or small. The duties of a material and spare parts unit include: General Manager Procurement Manager Maintenance Manager Production Manager Mech. This type of hybrid is called a cascade system. Sami Elferik for his enthusiastic support. A set of criteria are provided to assess and design organization structures and the main issues to be addressed are outlined. All crafts and related maintenance functions report to a central maintenance manager as depicted in Figure 1. Solving performance problems and capitalizing on opportunities could be attained through selection of the right persons, with the appropriate capabilities, supported by continuous training and good incentive schemes, in order to achieve organization success in terms of performance effectiveness and efficiency.
The determinants include the capacity of maintenance, centralization vs decentralization and in-house maintenance vs outsourcing. Roles and responsibilities are clearly defined and assigned; 2. Produced in association with Plant Engineering magazine, this book will be a source of information for plant engineers in any industry worldwide. You'll learn how Charlie, a plant manager, gets into trouble when he adopts a team approach to maintenance without doing his homework. 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.
As a result of the dramatic change in the use of technology, there is a growing reliance on software and professionals from other functional areas, for making or managing decisions on asset management and maintenance. Keeping assets and equipment in good condition, well configured and safe to perform their intended functions; 2. This means that breadth of knowledge required by such professionals is so wide that previous books addressing plant engineering have either been limited to only certain subjects or cursory in their treatment of topics. For this, maintenance strategy is required to be aligned with the production logistics and also to keep updated with the current best practices. The Handbook of Maintenance Management and Engineering features both fundamental and applied works from across the whole maintenance spectrum. Chapter 12 by Boukas deals with the control of production systems and presents models for production and maintenance planning.
Organizational secrecy in some cases may be subjected to leakage; 5. Maintenance costs are minimized; and 8. Availability and dependability of the source on a long term basis; 2. The Handbook of Maintenance Management and Engineering covers a wide range of topics in maintenance management and engineering. The Plant Engineering Handbook offers comprehensive coverage of an enormous range of subjects which are of vital interest to the plant engineer and anyone connected with industrial operations or maintenance. For this, maintenance strategy is required to be aligned with the production logistics and also to keep updated with the current best practices. 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.
However it has the following disadvantages: 1. Work for which the skill of specialists is required on a routine basis and which is readily available in the market on a competitive basis, e. The senior executive and his staff must influence the whole functional activity. It will provide professionals with the solutions and management skills needed to evaluate and to continuously improve maintenance systems. The criteria include clear roles and responsibilities, effective span of control, facilitation of good supervision and effective reporting, and minimization of costs.
