Is Your Preventive Maintenance Program Right for Your Plant?, Paper360º March/April 2019
IDCON does a lot of reliability and maintenance assessments across many industries and company sizes. The assessment looks at nine key processes. The top three processes assessed are leadership and organization, planning and scheduling, and preventive maintenance. Regardless of where the opportunities for improvement exist, it is very common that we begin working on improvements in the area of planning and scheduling (P&S).
When we review a client’s P&S work, we get a detailed look at the work residing in the backlog, which is where we retrieve the work that the planners will plan and the schedulers will schedule. When we review the backlog we can quickly form an opinion about the overall performance of the preventive maintenance (PM) program.
The PM program is meant to do two things. The first, of course, is to provide for the essential care of the assets (actions to prolong life), and the second is to detect problems as early as possible. Let’s make a comparison between your car’s essential care and your plant’s assets.
