This helpful resource provides you with an easy-to-follow, economically sensible maintenance and workorder management program.

Plant engineers and maintenance managers know from experience: All manufacturing equipment will break down, often at the worst possible moment. To survive in today's 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.

Designed to transform an often-unwieldy program into one that can be effectively managed, this book 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 improvements

Fundamentals of Preventive Maintenance outlines a 7-step process for designing and implementing the program, describing what needs to be done -- and why.
