Lean maintenance

maintenance is considered as a burden on organisational operating cost as it consumes lot of money with the hope to get it back in reliability and extending the asset lifecycle. The use of Lean can have a significant effect on maintenance performance especially when considering operating working capital. lot of cash is tied up in inventory, while the use of lean principles can improve processes work flow and eliminate was

This can have great benefit when major maintenance tasks are carried out and machineries have to be turned of and production stops. using VSM can illustrate value adding tasks to increase the speed of the task and reduce its overhead cost.

My employer is constantly acquiring new aircrafts and demand on training is increasing noticeably. The use of lean can ensure cope with this demand and reduction in current maintenance cost while also benefiting the department cash flow. This can be started as mapping every week scheduled maintenance to involve only value adding steps and eliminating all forms of waste. This will also give more time for engineers to give attention to other aspects of the asset management to improve the quality and reliability of pilots training. This also shows that there is a strong link between KBAM and organisational learning as focusing asset management improves the organisational knowledge on its existing assets.
