The first part that I will be addressing will be cost. Cost is the first thing a business starts with how much. As preventive maintenance relates to a company’s goals. The first thing that the program brings to the table is that it gives a business the ability to us the available maintenance resources for maximum benefit. Problems like this comes in a huge way from reducing the number of failures a company makes which helps keeps low cost minimization in which the big picture is what the company wants. In the coast breakdown, preventive maintenance program is what helps a business save money and is much better than reactive maintenance that is when you fit it when it breaks and results are in a high repair budget, in my opinion. In my long time in a business which maintenance is a very bug part there are four different maintenance program that companies use reactive, preventive, and productive all of these programs result cost in their own way. Each of the different forms effects costs in their own way proactive is when you monitor and correct the failure at the source. Predictive is when you repair based on the conditions of the equipment. Reactive is when it breaks you fix it .Finally, the end, there is preventive maintenance that usually is a planned repair. The breakdown should show that preventive maintenance has the largest impact on the cost, in the big picture.

The second main point I will be touching on is down time and how it will greatly effects a business without a preventive maintenance program. Down time for any business can have a huge impact some of the significant factors that can result are productivity losses, equipment damage and revenue loo and the biggest factor to me is customer loss. Downtime can cause great effects the whole system from the employee to the customer. Downtime can cause companies to spend large sums of money to keep their…...

Aircraft Maintenance

...Module 3 Aircraft Systems and Aircraft Maintenance Learning Objective #10 Determine the requirements for maintenance records, compliance with Airworthiness Directives (AD), preventive maintenance, and alterations. Web Support link: The Savvy Aviator While browsing the Internet and reading through various FAA websites, I came across a column by a passionate pilot that likes to spread the good, educated, aviation word. I chose column #23: Maintenance Records highlighting the importance of detailed and accurate records, and compliance with FARs. One thing I found refreshing was how casual the author speaks to his audience, yet delivers a wealth of knowledge that is typically only gained through years of experience, both on and off the ground. The author goes into great detail as to what is required from the regulatory sense and what is required per good pilot and mechanic sense. He further breaks it down by addressing complying with airworthiness directives and how to annotate them properly, alterations and the depth at which they need to be captured, and preventive and routine maintenance. I found this article to be very informative and challenged my current maintenance practices, both personally and professionally. The article was simplistic enough that the youngest of aviator or manager would glean the basics, and maybe a few inches deeper of aviation knowledge, and those that have been at this for more than a...

The Kansas City Preventive Patrol Experiment

...often superbly equipped patrol forces. The assumption underlying such deployment has been that the presence or potential presence of officers patrolling the streets in marked police cars deters people from committing crime. But the validity of this assumption had never been scientifically tested. And so, in 1972, with funding and technical assistance from the Police Foundation, the Kansas City Police launched a comprehensive, scientifically rigorous experiment to test the effects of police patrol on crime. THE EXPERIMENT The experiment began in October 1972 and continued through 1973; it was administered by the Kansas City Police Department and evaluated by the Police Foundation. Patrols were varied within 15 police beats. Routine preventive patrol was eliminated in five beats, labeled "reactive" beats (meaning officers entered these areas only in response to calls from residents). Normal, routine patrol was maintained in five "control" beats. In five "proactive" beats, patrol was intensified by two to three times the norm. The experiment asked the following questions: • Would citizens notice changes in the level of police patrol? • Would different levels of visible police patrol affect recorded crime or the outcome of victim surveys? • Would citizen fear of crime and attendant behavior change as a result of differing patrol levels? • Would their degree of satisfaction with police change? Information was gathered from victimization surveys, reported crime rates,......

...Maintenance (Lady Dawn Bartolo) Introduction The fifth function of personnel is maintenance that which has been established, that is, an effective workforce with the ability and willingness to perform organizational task. (Junette Bacus) Communicating and counseling One must face the task of maintaining the effective work force that has been assembled. Two features of this workforce that must be maintained (1) attitudes and (2) physical condition. The number of factors affecting the development and maintenance of employee is limitless, but verbal and nonverbal communication process is involved in all stages. In our report we will examine the nature of communication processes, channels and structures through which the flow and means through which blockages and filters can be minimized. Nature & Importance of Communication Communication – the act of inducing others to interpret an idea in the manner intended by the speaker or writer. communist (Latin word) – “common” Managing – getting things done through others, a task which requires the manager to communicate with other people. Channels & Structure Communication Networks 1. Similar to the formal structure of a firm (four persons able to communicate with only a central fifth person – the manager. 2.

Maintenance Scheduling

...the locus from which all maintenance activity is executed. Scheduling should be viewed as the “point” function and “marketing arm” of the system because it yields the earliest tangible results (often within weeks of start up). All individuals and groups perform better and accomplish more with clearly established, communicated and published expectations. When the maintenance function is managed without a weekly schedule, there are no specific expectations as to what is to be accomplished with the resources for which payroll checks will be drawn. Instead, whatever reactive demands are made is what will be done. The fundamental requirement target (the schedule) against which to control, followed by action (execution of the schedule) to achieve the target. The results, measured against the original intention (called schedule compliance), provide feedback for correcting deviations (improving future schedule compliance). Managers must schedule precisely, proceed positively, and persistently pursue weekly targets. Using the results and reports such as those showing schedule compliance, the planner, the supervisor, the maintenance manager, and internal customers can continuously improve the planning, coordination and scheduling function. The schedule is a device for lining up jobs waiting to be performed so that operations are best served while maintenance also makes optimal use of its resources. Four abilities, as listed below, are necessary for maintenance schedules to meet......

Aircraft Maintenance Ratings and Privleges

...AIRCRAFT MAINTENANCE RATINGS AND PRIVLEGES John INTRODUCTION TO AERONAUTICAL SCIENCE, AMGT 202 MR. ROGER TAYLOR AUGUST 15, 2009 In order to perform, certify repairs and airworthiness of aircraft in the aviation industry one must possess a license(s) issued by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). With each rating comes privileges issued and authorized by the FAA. The ratings are: Mechanics, Repairman, Parachute Riggers and Aircraft Dispatcher. Certification of these jobs is covered under Part 65 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (FAR’s). Also included under Part 65 is Air Traffic Controllers, but I’ll not address this career in this paper. Aviation maintenance is a demanding career that has many training requirements. An entire sub industry has been created to train aviation professionals. Schools and their training and curriculum requirements are governed by FAR 147. Under this FAR, only Airframe, Powerplant and Airframe and Powerplant (A&P) ratings may be taught. Curriculums have minimum FAA requirements and must be FAA approved. There are many schools throughout the United States that teach aviation maintenance; in fact the FAA’s web site lists over 150 certified schools within the United States alone. Additionally, many airlines and repair stations have in-house and on the job training programs to ensure personnel maintain proficiency, learn the latest techniques and newest technology. Aircraft maintenance ratings are broken......

...Chapter 5 Types of Maintenance Programs � 5.1 Introduction What is maintenance and why is it performed? Past and current maintenance practices in both the private and government sectors would imply that maintenance is the actions associated with equipment repair after it is broken. The dictionary defines maintenance as follows: “the work of keeping something in proper condition; upkeep.” This would imply that maintenance should be actions taken to prevent a device or component from failing or to repair normal equipment degradation experienced with the operation of the device to keep it in proper working order. Unfortunately, data obtained in many studies over the past decade indicates that most private and government facilities do not expend the necessary resources to maintain equipment in proper working order. Rather, they wait for equipment failure to occur and then take whatever actions are necessary to repair or replace the equipment. Nothing lasts forever and all equipment has associated with it some predefined life expectancy or operational life. For example, equipment may be designed to operate at full design load for 5,000 hours and may be designed to go through 15,000 start and stop cycles. The need for maintenance is predicated on actual or impending failure – ideally, maintenance is performed to keep equipment and systems running efficiently for at least design life of the component(s). As such, the practical operation of a component is time-based function.......

Illinois Maintenance

...Illinois Maintenance Guidelines and Formula Valerie Hiller Kaplan University CM107 Professor Snchieder June, 23, 2015 MEMO TO: Letisha Luecking Orlet P.C., Tom Speedie Attorney at Law, and Dennis Hatch Attorney at Law FROM: Valerie Hiller, P.C. SUBJECT: New maintenance guidelines and formula DATE: December 16. 2015 According ISBA (Mathewson, 2014), the new law, P.A. 98-0961, was crafted by ISBA Family Law Section Council, creates a formula for calculating maintenance based on the gross income of the parties and the length of marriage. Before this law was established, judges relied on a list of factors that appear in sections 504 and 505 of the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act. Spousal maintenance is determined for divorcing couples whose combined gross income is less than $250,000.  With the new formula, a maintenance award should equal 30 percent of the payor’s gross income minus 20 percent of the payee’s income, not to exceed 40 percent of the couples combined income when added to the payee’s gross. There are two formulas in this guideline. The maintenance that the payee has to pay and the length of payment to the payor, with this formula, it will establish the durations of the maintenance award. The payee will have to continue paying award for 20 percent of the span of marriage. Or it may be permanent or last the whole length of marriage for a couple that has been married 20 years or......

Effective Maintenance

...Proceedings of the 2012 International Conference on Industrial Engineering and Operations Management Istanbul, Turkey, July 3 – 6, 2012 Effective Preventive Maintenance Scheduling: A Case Study Hasnida Ab-Samat, Livendran Nair Jeikumar, Ernnie Illyani Basri, Nurul Aida Harun and Shahrul Kamaruddin School of Mechanical Engineering Universiti Sains Malaysia Engineering Campus, 14300 Nibong Tebal, Penang, Malaysia Abstract Maintenance is an important system in operation. In an era where industries are focusing on 24 hours operation to maximize production, machines are pushed to its absolute limits to cope with this demand. As utilization increases, the rate at which the machine parts get worn out increases thus the frequency of failure increases rapidly. To combat this problem and ensure that machines continue to operate at its optimum, maintenance work is carried out. One of the branches of maintenance technique which is carried out to prevent occurrences of failure before it happen is known as Preventive Maintenance (PM). However, performing PM may not be as easy as it requires great cooperation from the maintenance, production and management departments. This paper is written to study the aspects of effective PM and to analyze the causes of inefficient PM activity in a case study company and its implications. Another important approach taken is to investigate the causes of machine downtime by performing a root cause analysis. Affinity diagram was formed to......

Preventive Maintainance

...Preventive maintenance (PM) has the following meanings: 1. The care and servicing by personnel for the purpose of maintaining equipment and facilities in satisfactory operating condition by providing for systematic inspection,detection, and correction of incipient failures either before they occur or before they develop into major defects. 2. Maintenance, including tests, measurements, adjustments, and parts replacement, performed specifically to prevent faults from occurring. The primary goal of maintenance is to avoid or mitigate the consequences of failure of equipment. This may be by preventing the failure before it actually occurs which Planned Maintenance and Condition Based Maintenance help to achieve. It is designed to preserve and restore equipment reliability by replacing worn components before they actually fail. Preventive maintenance activities include partial or complete overhauls at specified periods, oil changes, lubrication, minor adjustments, and so on. In addition, workers can record equipment deterioration so they know to replace or repair worn parts before they cause system failure. The ideal preventive maintenance program would prevent all equipment failure before it occurs There is a controversy of sorts regarding the propriety of the usage “preventative.” Three kinds of maintenance: Preventive Corrective Block What is Preventative Maintenance?
