1 What Is Effective Maintenance?
1.1 The Aim of Effective Maintenance
Effective Maintenance aims to raise the company’s productivity by lowering the total cost of its equipment over every stage from design and fabrication through to operation and maintenance (including the initial cost of the equipment itself, maintenance and other running costs, and losses due to equipment deterioration).
The goals of Effective Maintenance can be summarised as follows:
Goals of Effective Maintenance = (Equipment performs its functions whenever required / At minimal cost)= (Maximize goals / Minimize means of attaining goals)
In a nutshell, Effective Maintenance aims to eliminate failures.
