Characteristics of under performing maintenance organizations – do any of these sound familiar?
- No formal process for identifying and validating work. (Gatekeeping).
- Maintenance activities are not focused on equipment criticality.
- Effective planning does not always precede execution of work orders.
- Most available maintenance hours are not scheduled.
- Not all tradesmen receive assigned work orders.
- Feedback on work quality is not provided.
- Operate in ‘fire fighting” or the “squeakiest wheel” mode.
- Root causes of downtime issues are not well understood.
- Work completion is not followed by thorough close-out and analysis.
- CMMS is under utilized – perhaps only used for generating PMs or parts lists.
- Constantly overwhelmed and behind the game with unmanageable WO backlogs.
- No maintenance-specific KPIs used to manage and improve maintenance activities.
