Reliability Centered Maintenance

Total Productive Maintenance - its uses and limitations




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 maximize the productivity in use, and to minimize 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.

Devising optimal strategy for maintaining industrial plant can be a difficult task of daunting complexity. This book provides 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 organization and setting up appropriate systems of documentation and control.
