Strategic Maintenance Management 101: An Introduction to What, Why and How
- An understanding of the need for, and a blueprint to create, a strategic maintenance management plan for your employer
- A guide to developing the internal talent necessary to provide the machinery and equipment maintenance necessary for the continued life of the business
If a business exists to produce or deliver some kind of product or service, it is essential that they maximize the production of those goods or services while delivering the highest quality possible at a competitive price. Obviously, this requires equipment and machinery operating at the highest capacity for as long as possible by teams of skilled operators with as little impact on production as possible.
So how can companies maximize their productivity while minimizing the impact of machine and equipment maintenance on that productivity? Is there a way to maintain the equipment with a reliable, steady source of parts and skilled “maintainers”? The best way to do that is by viewing the maintenance function as a full partner in the business and giving them a seat at the executive planning table.
