Maintenance Management Functionality

The term ‘maintenance management functionality’ refers to the set of functions required to ensure that quality maintenance processes can be delivered in full, on time, with quality and at specification in order to meet production, safety, and compliance targets (the production equation).
It is important to note that the amount of maintenance management functionality required to deliver the production equation is scalable and does no one-size-fits-all with any determinations.
The complexity, risk profile and shear size of the production operations dictate the level of maintenance management functionality required.
For example, the level of maintenance management functionality required to achieve the production equation for a small family-operated motor mechanic business would be significantly different from that of the world’s largest nickel, coal or gold mine.
As production equation for an organization grows, so does the maintenance management functionality requirements. The greater the scale of Maintenance Management Functionality determined, the more people in various roles will be required to drive the process and ensure compliance. You would also in this case expect to that increased levels of technology would be required, and in some cases, the more advanced the technology must be.
On the lower end of the scale, weekly maintenance management functionality may simply include a whiteboard for planning and scheduling maintenance tasks for the upcoming week, as well as a decent set of tools for implementation.
On the higher end of the scale, there could be more than 300 employees, including work crews that work 24 hours a day, planners, reliability engineers, and a materials management function overseen by supervisors, superintendents, and a maintenance manager.
It is equally important to avoid using more Maintenance Management Functionality than is necessary. This would put the organisation under unnecessary financial strain and waste a lot of effort.
The main takeaway with Maintenance Management Functionality that I can think of that we should only ever engage the necessary levels of people and technology at an organisation to ensure the production equation.
To determine the optimal amount of maintenance management functionality required you’ll need to perform comprehensive analysis using one or more methodologies; it all depends on your production equation. Commonly used methodologies utilised are Reliability-Cantered Maintenance (RCM, Total Productive Maintenance (TPM), Failure Modes Effects & Criticality Analysis (FMECA), Resource Allocation Analysis and a technology Assessment.
