The profitability of any industry, in any technological sector - power, process, manufacturing, mineral extraction, transport, communication, etc - will be profoundly influenced by the reliability and performance of the plant which it uses. It is therefore vital that all possible measures are taken to maximise the productivity in use, and to minimise the maintenance costs and the downtime, of that plant. This book explains, in a clear and concise manner, the various organization structures that are needed for doing just that, the information systems with which those structures will need to be resourced, and the steps that will have to be taken in order to bring those structures and systems into being. The author, Anthony Kelly, an experienced international consultant and lecturer on this subject, calls his approach BUSINESS-CENTRED MAINTENANCE (BCM) because it springs from, and is driven by, the identification of business objectives, which are then translated into maintenance objectives and which underpin the maintenance strategy formulation. For the first time maintenance management is analysed from the perspective of the whole company and thus makes sense not only technologically but also in economic and business terms.

Planning and Control of Maintenance Systems is the first book to address maintenance and repair from an engineering perspective. Using the innovative concept of total productive maintenance (TPM) and written by three renowned experts in statistics, operations research, and engineering, it is an essential tool for planning a maintenance system using statistical and optimization techniques in order to avert equipment failure. Suitable for engineers and managers in capital-intensive industry, as well as for first-year graduate students and undergraduates in mechanical or industrial engineering.

For over three decades, Terry Wireman has specialized in the improvement of maintenance and reliability. As an international expert in maintenance management, he has assisted hundreds of clients in North America, Europe and the Pacific Rim to improve their maintenance effectiveness. Through a new 10-volume Maintenance Strategy series, the author makes his expertise in the field accessible to industrial and facility organizations everywhere. The fifth volume in the series will highlight the need for increased skills proficiency in maintenance and reliability organizations today. It begins with a discussion of the skills shortage, then progresses into how to develop cost-effective and efficient skills training programs. It focuses on modern tools for duty, task, needs analysis and how to convert that data into a complete skills development initiative. The reader will be able to use the information in this to develop or enhance a skills training program in their company.

This report presents guidelines on evaluating and implementing strategies to improve the skills of the transit industry's maintenance workforce in order to keep pace with evolving technology. The report is intended to help maintenance departments develop highly skilled, high-performance work organizations. Research was undertaken by Rand Corporation to assess technological demands, document current practices, and examine and propose new approaches to link maintenance-staffing practices with evolving technology to improve effectiveness. The areas addressed in the research included the range of programs currently in place, differences and similarities in current practice, analysis of major pitfalls and keys to success, an examination of vendor roles and responsibilities in training, and the effect of labor relations and work rules.

Condition-based monitoring is an accepted feature of many industries: petro-chemical, power generation, coal mining and steel-making, for instance. In manufacturing, its application has been somewhat muted. This text attempts to present the fundamental justification for condition-based maintenance together with enough analytic and practical guidance for its implementation. There are chapters on the two dominant techniques of vibration and debris analysis. Also, basic diagnostic methods are given along with a presentation of the systems approach to condition monitoring. A detailed case study shows the practical application of the techniques presented. Finally, future developments in the use of expert systems and A1 techniques are highlighted. Condition-based Maintenance and Machine Diagnostics gives details of both off-the-shelf solutions and analytic diagnostic techniques to enable a bespoke solution to be developed. It is suitable for senior undergraduates and postgraduates in the field of manufacturing and industrial engineering, and it furnishes managers in industry with sufficient information to judge the usefulness of the techniques for their particular application.

"This synthesis will be of interest to maintenance managers, maintenance engineers, and others concerned with the periodic problems associated with the day-to-day maintenance of highways. Information is presented on discovery and response systems applicable to short-term responsive maintenance needs. The development and implementation of short-term responsive maintenance systems (STRMS) can be effective in handling permanent or temporary repairs. This report of the Transportation Research Board describes and discusses the short-term responsive maintenance systems in effect in several states. It describes how these special maintenance needs are detected, reported, evaluated, and managed, and notes how new technology can assist maintenance managers."--Avant-propos.

Devising optimal strategy for maintaining industrial plant can be a difficult task of daunting complexity. This book aims to provide the plant engineer with a comprehensive and systematic approach, a framework of guidelines, for tackling this problem, i.e. for deciding maintenance objectives, formulating equipment life plans and plant maintenance schedules, designing the maintenance organisation and setting up appropriate systems of documentation and control. The author, Anthony Kelly, an experienced international consultant and lecturer on this subject, calls his approach BUSINESS-CENTRED MAINTENANCE (BCM) because it springs from, and is driven by, the identification of business objectives, which are then translated into maintenance objectives and which underpin the maintenance strategy formulation.
