Introduction to maintenance plans

A fundamental part of routine maintenance control is the formation of maintenance plans or routines.
Maintenance plans or routines are models that contain information regarding routine maintenance activities that must be performed on equipment. Routine maintenance activities generally consist of actions aimed at preventing failures and are carried out cyclically and repetitively with a determined frequency.

Basic elements of a maintenance plan (Parts, activities and frequency)

A maintenance plan is made up of three basic elements:

MAINTENANCE PLAN
PARTS ACTIVITIES FREQUENCY
The parts of the team. The routine activities that must be carried out to each of the parties. The frequency with which each of the activities should be carried out.
To define the parts of a team, the MP manages a tree structure.

Example:

  • To inspect
  • Lubricate
  • Replace
  • Adjust
  • Fill
  • And many more

Frequency based on dates

In a date-based controlled maintenance activity, the frequency with which the activity should be performed is set based on the elapsed time. (Example, daily, every week, every 15 days, every 3 months, every 2 years, etc.)

Frequency based on readings

In a read-based controlled maintenance activity, the frequency with which the activity should be performed is set based on the use of the equipment. (Example, kilometers traveled, hours of use, units produced, number of ignitions, cycles, etc.)

Mixed frequency

In a mixed maintenance activity, the frequency with which the activity should be performed is set based on equipment usage or time, whichever comes first. (Example, every 15,000 kilometers or 12 months, whichever comes first)

The user is the one who structures the maintenance plans of his equipment based on his experience or recommendation of the manufacturers of the same

Therefore, the MP is a general application program that can be implemented in any company, regardless of the types of equipment or locations it has. We can create routine maintenance plans for equipment and for locations or buildings.

Examples of maintenance plans:

Example. Van

Example. Autoclave

Example. Jadin

Planning preventive maintenance activities generates capital savings, guarantees a longer service time of the facilities, equipment and machinery, adding value to the company and greater reliability
