Creating the maintenance strategy

There is a simple concept to understand about maintenance, equipment are maintained to support production or utilization of the equipment. Therefore, the maintenance strategy should be part of the production strategy and to act as a support for acheiving the overall business strategy. A very effective means is strategic planning and especially by using Hoshin Kanri to deploy a detailed plan on what maintenance has to do for the company to achieve its vision.

The use of hoshin kanri can help in planning to show what is the gap in cureent maintenance performance and accordingly create a maintenance strategy that can overcome this gap and raise the overall organizational performance.

In my department, we work on maintaining flight simulators to support training pilots. Therefore, the maintenance strategy should be derived from the flight operations strategy. It also has to be working towards acheiving the organizational vision. This approach will help us address the gap in flight training department performance and create a maintenance strategy among other functions to close the gap and optimize the performance.
