Maintenance Strategy Series Volume 1 - Preventive Maintenance

6 x 9 in

About this title

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.

Shows how to tactically develop a preventive maintenance program, answering questions, such as:

  • What equipment to include?
  • What skill level of the technicians are required?
  • How to actually perform basic PM tasks?
  • and many others.

Does not over-emphasize the value of preventive maintenance to the exclusion of other components of a maintenance strategy.
