In an ever-increasing competitive industries like Manufacturing, Mining, Power and Utilities and Oil & Gas, the maintenance division is typically required by management to increase asset and equipment uptime with minor breakdowns and lower maintenance cost. For this type of situation, the maintenance departments feel the lack of resources. Work orders keeps coming in, but not many get done.
A study from SMRP shows that the average “wrench time” of available maintenance personnel is only 35%. It means that on an average day, an organization’s maintenance force only spends about 3 ½ hours on completing maintenance work during 10 working hours. The remaining hours are wasted on gathering parts, travelling, meetings, breaks, and other “non-productive” activities, that have nothing to do with working on asset and equipment maintenance.
Without proper planning and scheduling, maintenance is uncoordinated, costly and ineffective, leaving the maintenance team to fail in meeting deadlines. These failures will cause constant problems for the Operations department, who will become increasingly reluctant to release equipment in the future. This can directly contribute to a higher maintenance cost, inadequate maintenance execution and rapidly deteriorating plant integrity.
