Preventive Maintenance Optimization (PMO): Building on the Success of Worker Engagement

IMC-2017 Learning Session 40:28

Over the past several years a leveraged approach to re-establishing the maintenance history, feedback, and improvement process has reaffirmed the management and technician relationship required to build a sustainable effort. While not a perfect process, the technicians realize that there is a commitment to ensuring their efforts are acted upon which in turn has reignited the sense of asset ownership at the floor level.

This effort, a topic of a previous IMC presentation, became the springboard to the next initiative; Preventive Maintenance Optimization (PMO). The PMO effort has been implemented in key Production areas of the plant since 2015. Due to complexity of work execution in the Operating Environment the effort was implemented in two phases.

Phase I – Team Synergy, Work Instruction Standardization, Task Validation – Expansion of Task Instruction and Parts Identification
Phase II – System Performance Trending, Task Optimization, Continuous Improvement, Expansion of Condition Based Maintenance Activities
