Common Traps in Your Proactive Maintenance Plans

Posted by Mike Gehloff on Mar 2, 2015 1:49:45 PM

Introduction

Let’s face it. Often times, our proactive maintenance strategies are a mess (I decided to just get that out there in the first sentence and not try to dance around the issue). Show of virtual hands, Thumbs Up if you feel that your proactive maintenance plan is the right one for you – one that produces real results and is streamlined and efficient. Thumbs Down if you feel that this program is a paper-tiger, eats up far too many valuable resources, does not provide the value that we really need, and is one of your most significant opportunities for improvement. If you voted Thumbs Up, this article is probably not for you. If you voted Thumbs Down, please read on.

What is the Level of Maturity of Your Current PM Program

Posted by Mike Gehloff on Oct 1, 2012 10:21:30 AM

 In the world of Preventive Maintenance their are all types of information which can be found.  This is what I consider the one of the best methods to determine the maturity of your current PM Program. A while back I developed this matrix with others I trust in this area. It was then vetted by some of the best experts in Preventive Maintenance in the World.

8 Steps to Success in Maintenance Planning and Scheduling

Posted by Mike Gehloff on Sep 27, 2012 10:33:18 AM

Maintenance Planning and Scheduling are key elements that influence the true success of any organization. Many times we have a planner or planner/scheduler, but do not know how to use him or her effectively or efficiently. When we talk about maintenance planning, we are talking about higher wrench time. At this time of economic uncertainty, a higher wrench time equals lower cost, which results in job security for all. Past studies have shown that most companies do not perform maintenance planning effectively thus impacting negatively work effectiveness, wrench time, equipment uptime, equipment reliability, and cost. If we were “Effective in Maintenance Planning”, it would result in Higher Wrench Time and Higher Equipment Reliability.
