The need for Maintenance management strategy

maintenance management is an essential factor as asset management. Although maintenance is much more advanced than old practises "fix it when it breaks", many companies donot follow the optimum maintenance approach. With an objective thinking, maintenance role is to reduce the overall cost of ownership by making the equipment available, reliable, and extend expected life among other factors such as safety and environment. That is why engineering departments need to set up a maintenance strategy.

Maintenance strategy is important, although the objectives are usually similar "availability and reliability" the method of going about it varies depending on the working environment and equipment design. for instance, some equipments can be maintained during operations or others has contingency system. a maintenance strategy would be a suitable method for achieving the objectives.

When going back to work, it would be useful to negotiate with the manager to set up a maintenance strategy for the department, and if it exists it should be disseminated for others to contribute towards it. The strategy can be designed to best fit the department goals. a following blog is created to focus on this point.
