Common Sense Maintenance and Reliability 

Design for Reliability; Starts with a good design

Reliability Based Spare Parts Management

When asked to describe the largest issue they face in organizing maintenance work, many planners and supervisors reply "Finding materials and getting them to the right place at the right time."

Maintenance materials are a large part of any plant's maintenance costs and not having the right materials in the right place at the right time is a common cause of productivity loss and reduced reliability.

Focus areas:

  • The impact of maintenance storeroom management on maintenance performance
  • Organizing for efficient materials management and maximum plant reliability
  • Aligning objectives for Purchasing, Storeroom and Maintenance managers
  • The skills required for effective maintenance materials management
  • The critical importance of materials data accuracy, and how this can be achieved
  • Integration of materials management with plant reliability
  • Inventory management basics for supplies and spare parts
  • A logical, step-by-step process to decide what spares to stock
  • Management of obsolete stock
  • The integration of materials and engineering information
  • Efficient creation of spare parts lists
  • Effective searching for parts and supplies, even with your existing data
  • Spare parts interchangeability
  • Management of repairable spare parts
  • Work kits
  • Using Storeroom information to track reliability improvements

Preventive Maintenance / Condition Monitoring 

Preventive maintenance will directly impact equipment reliability. It all starts with designing the equipment for reliability, then implementing a preventive maintenance program that enables your operation to identify and minimize equipment failures.

TPS’s Preventive Maintenance/Condition Monitoring training teaches participants how to set up a strategy that thinks about reliability from the design stage of the operation, then develops a cost-effective preventive maintenance process, provides practical documentation, and field PM execution exercises.  Operators and maintenance craftspeople will also learn valuable shutdown, on-the-run inspections and PM techniques.

Preventive Maintenance & Condition Monitoring

  • Alignment
  • Actions to find failures early (condition monitoring/inspections)
  • Bearings, and vibrations
  • Chains, belt and guards inspections
  • Material crack detection
  • Pumps and mechanical seals and inspections
  • Optimizing the PM and Condition Monitoring Systems
  • Financial benefits
  • Most cost effective maintenance methods
  • Inspection frequency
