Plant engineers and maintenance managers know from experience: All manufacturing equipment will break down, often at the worst possible moment. To survive in todays lean-and-mean manufacturing environment, companies must head off these breakdowns with a preventive-maintenance management program that is both systematic and flexible and geared toward minimizing downtime and maximizing equipment life. Fundamentals of Preventive Maintenance provides readers with an easy-to-follow, economically sensible maintenance and workorder management program. This results-driven guidebook outlines a 7-step process for designing and implementing the program, describing what needs to be done -- and why. Designed to transform an often unwieldy program into one that can be effectively managed, it provides hands-on techniques for: * Establishing critical scheduling protocols* Managing the daily workorder schedule* Developing and issuing preventive maintenance workorders* Monitoring the program and making improvement

This IBM® RedpaperTM publication updated technical overview provides essential details about the data processing steps, message flows, and analytical models that power IBM Predictive Maintenance and Quality (PMQ) Version 2.0. The new version of PMQ builds on the first one, released in 2013, to help companies efficiently monitor and maintain production assets and improve their overall availability, utilization, and performance. It analyzes various types of data to detect failure patterns and poor quality parts earlier than traditional quality control methods, with the goal of reducing unscheduled asset downtime and improving quality metrics. Version 2.0 includes an improved method of interacting with the solution's analytic data store using an API from the new Analytics Solution Foundation, a reusable, configurable, and extensible component that supports a number of the solution's analytic functions. The new version also changes the calculation of profiles and KPIs, which is now done using orchestrations that are defined in XML.

When practiced appropriately, Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) can tilt the playing field in your company's favor. It makes similar machines turn out significantly more product (lowering capital costs), with less scrap or waste (lowering raw material costs), more efficiently (lowers labor needed). The work force is more motivated, more engaged, more flexible and more aggressive in seeking improvements. TPM adds the worker's creativity to the equation. TPM recognizes that the employee is the secret weapon. TPM helps unleash their talent, attention and team spirit. You will also see that TPM is a production/operations effort as much as Lean manufacturing, Total Quality or any other company-wide production program. TPM Reloaded is a challenging, innovative, and timely new look at implementing TPM by one of the field's leading trainers and authors. It takes into account the economic upheavals of recent years and demonstrates that TPM is less about moving maintenance tasks to operations than moving accountability for aggregate output of the plant to operators. The book goes on to show that effective TPM û TPM reloaded - requires a radical change in management's view of the worker and even more daunting, a radical change in the way workers view their own role. Joel Levitt wrote this book for managers and supervisors of all types of operations and production, from traditional manufacturing and assembly to mining, refining, smelting, chemical production, as well as for service industries such as trucking and facility maintenance. The concepts of TPM can be applied to any productive effort, as varied as a bus driver (as the operator) or a control room operator aboard a ship or in a refinery. Regardless of where you work, this book can be an invaluable guide for implementing TPM and helping your company achieve greater success.

Uptime describes the combination of activities that deliver fewer breakdowns, improved productive capacity, lower costs, and better environmental performance. The bestselling second edition of Uptime has been used as a textbook on maintenance management in several postsecondary institutions and by many companies as the model framework for their maintenance management programs. Following in the tradition of its bestselling predecessors, Uptime: Strategies for Excellence in Maintenance Management, Third Edition explains how to deal with increasingly complex technologies, such as mobile and cloud computing, to support maintenance departments and set the stage for compliance with international standards for asset management. This updated edition reflects a far broader and deeper wealth of experience and knowledge. In addition, it restructures its previous model of excellence slightly to align what must be done more closely with how to do it. The book provides a strategy for developing and executing improvement plans that work well with the new values prevalent in today's workforce. It also explains how you can use seemingly competing improvement tools to complement and enhance each other. This edition also highlights action you can take to compensate for the gradual loss of skills in the current workforce as "baby boomers" retire.
