2. Maintenance Excellence – 
Advanced Asset Management

– Making Best Maintenance Practices a productive Habit 


Establishing Asset Management and Maintenance Requirements is the first step towards a World-Class preservation of functionality. The traditional “corrective repair system” needs to give way for new techniques and mindsets. In this program the goal is to create more professional awareness for improving performance, reliability, and maintainability of the equipment and installations.  

We revise the international performance guidelines, especially for critical equipment. The objectives are set to reduce downtime caused by failures and setups which is a very common issue and has traditionally been overlooked. 

Best Maintenance Practices are an urgent requirement to move away from the “temporary remedies,” so popular since the old times. We need to establish a more professional approach in every instance of maintenance service or action. Strong considerations are set to prevent poor maintenance practices. This brings the Reliability to a higher level and the responsibility-accountability of every technician becomes a new standard to which all of us must align. 

All kinds of Companies today require a new kind of maintainer, one who is knowledgeable, efficient, effective, and has a professional approach to do their job. 

The sloppy or the uneducated have no place in today’s Maintenance organizations. Other important aspect is the “Autonomous Maintenance” approach where operators and other customers of Maintenance have a valuable participation in the daily tasks to help reduce the down-time or the aggravation of some minimal failures that in the past would go unnoticed and uncared for. It is a responsibility of the maintenance technicians and leaders to educate and train the users of the equipment so we have a higher level of productivity. 

This needs to be done consistently through personal interactions which will assure that the user can’t simply detach from the responsibility of taking care of minor details like: Cleaning, Lubrication, and Observations that may lead to discovery, prevention, or correction of conditions which become evident as operators know their equipment better. 

One more vital Maintenance Best Practice is “Root Cause Analysis” that usually is overlooked and produces reoccurrence of problems and inappropriate conditions in equipment and installations.
