Abstract : This paper proposes a holistic, integrated approach to machinery management. Such a program is comprised of four major elements. There must be a systematic planned maintenance system for routine maintenance and condition assessment. A system must be in place to insure needed spares are available without carrying excessive inventory. Most importantly, a measurement system must collect necessary data and present it to management in such a way that they understand their problems and what action to take. Once good measurements are available, there must be a continuous improvement system to make the maintenance function more effective, the equipment more reliable and efficient, the work performed more professional and less expensive, while minimizing spares inventory carrying costs.
