The field of activity of today’s maintenance encompasses more activities and requirements than ever before.

Functioning and well-organized maintenance, motivated employees and a stable supply of spare parts can reduce malfunctions and downtimes. Provided that the planning, measures and resources used are effective, maintenance can have a massive positive impact on the degree of machine utilization.

PARIS is used here as an abbreviation for the description.

P = process flow

A = applications

R = resources

I = infrastructures

S = safty control
The operational maintenance is therefore largely responsible for the I, the infrastructure. It provides production with a functioning, cleaned, maintained and technically available machine / system.

However, the restriction applies to the extent that maintenance can only guarantee the system availability required by management if a machine is suitable for the utilization and load. Because maintenance usually has no influence on the purchase of the right machines and systems, this decision is all too often made without the maintenance staff having a say.

Therefore, the availability always depends on the technology provided, the efficiency of the manufacturing processes and the resources made available.

The responsibility therefore does not lie solely with maintenance, but includes various parameters. The technical availability must be set in relation to the production availability.

Maintenance can have a positive effect on availability through good organization of its processes and quick reactions in the event of faults.

An “over-academization” of maintenance by means of complex control using key figures and process plans often results in employees being demotivated and only delivering “service according to regulations”. That is why trust in the people involved is probably the most decisive factor for successful cooperation between everyone in the company. Ultimately, it is maintenance that can reduce downtimes with your daily work and ensure rapid recovery. The cooperation in interdisciplinary teams ensures that the entire optimization potential is siphoned off and thus a stable system availability with high output is guaranteed.
