About this title

Peter Drucker, founder of Modern Management, stated, “If you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it! With that premise, this book was written.

Maintenance professionals need a simple approach to managing their maintenance organization effectively and efficiently, and thus, this book was created.

This work by Ricky Smith and David A. Martin is written in a format that allows you to quickly read and absorb the lessons in a couple of hours. After the initial read, it automatically converts into a KPI reference manual that you can use time and again as you work to improve performance.

The authors move quickly and efficiently to define a series of metrics and, more importantly, instruct you in where and when to use them. They are both committed to helping you become a more effective maintenance and reliability organization. Once you understand this simple approach to managing with leading and lagging key performance indicators (KPIs), identify KPIs for managing your maintenance process.

Your Maintenance Process:

  1. Preventive Maintenance
  2. Maintenance Planning
  3. Maintenance Scheduling
  4. Work Execution
  5. Failure Reporting

Develop a plan for accurate data input for each of the above metrics. This is not an easy process to implement; it takes patience and a strong desire to implement your plan successfully.

This book should certainly be read by everyone in your maintenance department, but our hope is that you would also acquire copies for all of your operations supervisors and managers as well. You might even consider giving a copy to your plant manager.
