Most maintenance departments in Canada today operate at between 10% and 40% efficiency. Nearly 70% of equipment failures are self induced. These statistics should not be acceptable and should generate some interest for senior managers and maintenance managers.

Where does your maintenance department stand in relation to these figures? Do you track and measure maintenance efficiency? Do you track work orders? Do you analyze equipment failures? If not, then you probably have no idea if you are better or worse then these averages.

A maintenance audit will provide you with the details, strategies and actions that you can use immediately to develop your approach to planned maintenance tactics for improving your maintenance practices.

Planned maintenance uses work standards that have measurable performance levels for management control. Methods and strategies must be in place to support these standards. With proper guidance from your consulting team, this will lead to a planned maintenance system that reflects the goals of your organization. 

In order to achieve Asset Maintenance excellence you will need a detailed examination of your current practices for training, work flow, tasks, procedures, planning, purchasing, CMMS, reporting and analysis of results.
What type of maintenance organization do you manage? Reactive or Proactive? Are you staffed to respond to repairs or to provide planned maintenance? The cost of reactive maintenance is many times the life cycle cost of the equipment. The opportunity for significant cost savings can not be ignored in times of constrained budgets.

What are the standards of performance that you should expect from an effective maintenance department?

1. 100% of staff time is covered by work orders.
2. 90% of all work is generated by preventative maintenance inspections.
3. 30%-40% of all staff time is spent on preventative maintenance.
4. 90% of all work is planned and scheduled.
5. 95% client satisfaction with the maintenance department.
6. 100% reporting reliability.
7. Overtime is less then 2%.
It takes time and commitment to achieve the above performance standards, but working with TECH-MORE you will have access to the experience, tools and resources needed to help you transition to a higher performance level.
