About this title

World renowned author and maintenance expert Terry Wireman has completed a 6 book collection including a valuable maintenance maturity model. The Maintenance Strategy ™ Series is the first collection of its kind.

This bundled set includes the first six books:

Volume 1: Preventive Maintenance - The first volume in this series begins by detailing the importance of preventive maintenance to an overall maintenance strategy. The text clearly illustrates how the components of any maintenance strategy are interlinked with dependencies and the performance measures necessary to properly manage the preventive maintenance program. A process flow diagram details the steps of developing the preventive maintenance program, and the appendixes contain numerous examples of preventive maintenance inspections for the reader to begin applying to their program immediately.

Volume 2: MRO Inventory and Purchasing - The second volume in the series shows the reader how to develop an inventory and purchasing program for MRO spares and supplies as part of an overall strategy. Specifically, the text focuses on the importance of a well organized storage location and part inventory numbering system detailing to the reader the most effective ways to accomplish this goal. The receiving and parts issues disciplines are discussed in detail with a focus on the value proposition for spare parts controls and justification of storeroom overhead. In addition, the appendixes provide examples of parts and detail storage conditions that can be utilized in developing or refining an inventory storage location.

Volume 3: Maintenance Work Management Processes - The third volume of the series focuses on developing a work management process that will support the maintenance strategy components. It outlines a financially cost effective process that collects the data to use advanced strategies such as RCM and TPM. The text extensively details the maintenance organizational development process and then outlines nine basic work management flows. The nine flows are then detailed and the potential problems with executing the flows are examined along with solutions to the most common problems.

Volume 4: Successfully Utilizing CMMS/EAM Systems - The fourth volume in the series will show how CMMS/EAM systems are necessary to support a maintenance and reliability organization in companies today. The text begins with the proper methodologies for selecting and implementing a CMMS/EAM system. The text then discusses how to properly utilize the system to gain a maximum return on investment for the system. Finally, the text examines the organization and methodology to truly achieve Enterprise Asset Management - an elusive goal for most modern organizations.

Volume 5: Training Programs for Maintenance Organizations - The fifth volume in the series will highlight the need for increased skills proficiency in maintenance and reliability organizations today. It begins with a discussion of the skills shortage, then progresses into how to develop cost-effective and efficient skills training programs. It focuses on modern tools for duty, task, needs analysis and how to convert that data into a complete skills development initiative. The reader will be able to use the information in this to develop or enhance a skills training program in their company.

Volume 6: Operator-Driven Reliability - The sixth volume in the series will set a goal to provide a framework that can organize the ODR efforts in an organization to support maintenance initiatives and not conflict with them. For this to occur, the maintenance organization must already be in a mature state. If this is not the case, operations will attempt to do too much with ODR and the initiative will bog down, since maintenance will not be able to properly support the maintenance-related activities of the operations group. This book builds on the previous five volumes and many of the strategies discussed in the previous volumes must be in place to provide the foundation necessary to properly involve operation in maintenance-related activities. By learning how to involve operations in maintenance activities, maintenance personnel are freed-up to focus on higher level predictive and reliability activities, thus increasing equipment uptime.
