Maintenance as a supporting function often lies outside the focus of management although it is responsible for considerable costs and has a direct impact on production effectiveness. The wrong approach to maintenance may result in the failure of a business.
Significant improvements in plant profitability are achieved by maturing organizations via measurement and continuous monitoring of equipment productive efficiency, application of root cause analysis to equipment failures, proactive maintenance management vs. “firefighting”. A manager who is aware of this fact and is able to use TPM (Total Productive Maintenance) best practices is on the right path to prosperity.
