Are you trapped in reactive maintenance?

Your company maintenance work is purely reactive and does not pursue any strategy if:

1. Required spare parts are not in stock and nobody knows
You will be interviewed every morning at the production meeting after the last shift     and the last unplanned machine outages
Reduces the useful life of the machines and increases downtime
Employees performing maintenance are poorly trained and maintenance is poorly prepared, with high turnover in the maintenance department
The maintenance eliminates disturbances but avoids disturbances permanently
The daily, weekly, monthly and all other maintenance and inspections are not carried out regularly
The production makes their problems to problems of maintenance
The cost of maintenance increases and there is no maintenance plan
The overtime of the maintenance staff is well above the average of the other employees in the company
The company does not maintain a knowledge database for its machines and equipment and maintenance can not substantiate its knowledge because there is no basis for it
The purchasing department does not carry out the maintenance orders and buys „cheap“ spare parts
The share of unplanned maintenance measures account for more than 30% of the work of maintenance
No clear specifications and KPIs on the part of the management to the maintenance missing maintenance strategy and organization

The management is responsible for the planning and the maintenance strategy and specifies the direction and the resources. The management lays the foundation and provides the infrastructure. Along with maintenance, a short-term strategy, a medium-term strategy and, of course, a long-term strategy are defined. This organization enables maintenance to proceed in a planned manner and to stabilize and increase the efficiency of machines and plants. Part of the maintenance is an efficient spare parts management as well as a training plan for the employees.
