1. Ways To Schedule Preventive Maintenance For Equipment & Machinery
Scheduling preventative maintenance (PM) is a frequently overlooked aspect of maintenance management. Certainly, nearly every equipment needs some kind of regular maintenance. Above all, this reduces the chance of unexpected failure or repetitive breakdowns. Equipment downtime results in big costs due to lost production, variable product quality and poor customer satisfaction.
Poor work order estimates are often become very expensive in time & resources! When we have several different maintenance tasks to do every day, it is important to estimate how much time each work order will take. Underestimating the time required will cause many problems. It’s a familiar story and usually goes like this:
“Extra overtime is required every week to complete maintenance work, the maintenance team is stressed out and close to burn out, many critical work orders have not been completed. And the maintenance team has a bad reputation and are seen as very incompetent!”
3. Equipment Maintenance Calendars & Scheduling Preventive Maintenance
When you have several hundred equipment it can be hard to get an idea of preventive maintenance that is due for all the different equipment. Hence, this is where reports from your CMMS software can be quite helpful. For instance, you may find a report called Equipment Maintenance Calendar. Use it to get an idea of preventative work due in the coming months week by week.
4. Preventive Maintenance Scheduling – When Is It Excessive?
Doesn’t this sound weird! But have you ever had this happen to you? Does management or other departments complain that your preventive maintenance scheduling is taking up too much time? Is equipment often unavailable because of scheduled preventive maintenance? Is your team complaining about spending too much time checking equipment and similar tasks?
Depending on your work order backlog and who is complaining, you should take these complaints seriously or not! Most importantly, questions by management and operations need to be properly answered. Complaints by your team may point to underlying problems that may require a review of the work being done. So how should you handle this?
Maintenance departments in many organizations often have a thankless job! If things are running smoothly no one remembers them. The opposite happens when there are delays or problems due to maintenance requirements. Are you getting many complaints regards facilities maintenance or equipment maintenance? Is there a lot of pending maintenance work? Is it taking too much time to complete? If this sounds familiar, here are three quick maintenance metrics to help you identify causes and solutions.
Maintenance managers and maintenance planners can use these metrics to pinpoint the real issues and how to fix them. These maintenance metrics are not too hard to collect if you have maintenance management software. You should also use them even when everything is going well. You will get a quick measure of your maintenance program as well as identify early actions to take if the metrics are changing in a negative way.
