Of the more than $300 billion spent on plant maintenance and operations, U.S. industry spends as much as 80 percent of this amount to correct chronic failures of machines, systems, and people. With machines and systems becoming increasingly complex, this problem can only worsen, and there is a clear and pressing need to establish comprehensive equipment management programs that incorporate the diverse considerations that are essential to effective maintenance. Engineering Maintenance: A Modern Approach presents a cradle-to-grave strategy to preserve equipment function, avoid the consequences of failures, and ensure the productive capacity of equipment. Moving well beyond traditional approaches, this strategy incorporates quality and safety, human error, and software maintenance considerations along with costing, reliability, and maintainability. From specialized books and technical articles, the author has gathered and integrated the latest advances in engineering maintenance into practical, step-by-step plans designed to optimize maintenance activities, extend equipment life, and minimize failures. The elimination of chronic failures through effective maintenance can reduce maintenance costs by 40 to 60 percent. Engineering Maintenance: A Modern Approach not only collects recent advances into a single volume, but also directs you on a path that can lead to a more successful, cost-effective maintenance program.

Today, engineering systems are an important element of the world economy and each year billions of dollars are spent to develop, manufacture, operate, and maintain various types of engineering systems around the globe. Many of these systems are highly sophisticated and contain millions of parts. For example, a Boeing jumbo 747 is made up of approximately 4.5 million parts including fasteners. Needless to say, reliability, safety, and maintenance of systems such as this have become more important than ever before.? Global competition and other factors are forcing manufacturers to produce highly reliable, safe, and maintainable engineering products. Therefore, there is a definite need for the reliability, safety, and maintenance professionals to work closely during design and other phases. Engineering Systems Reliability, Safety, and Maintenance: An Integrated Approach eliminates the need to consult many different and diverse sources in the hunt for the information required to design better engineering systems.

Maintenance of equipment, machinery systems and allied infrastructure comprises the ways and means of optimizing the available resources of manpower, materials, tools and test equipment, within a set of constraints, to help achieve the targets of an organization by minimizing the downtimes. Whether the goal is to produce and sell a product at a profit or is simply to perform a mission in a cost-effective manner, the maintenance principles discussed in this text apply equally to all such types of organizations. In consonance with the growth of the industry and its modernization and the need to minimize the downtimes of machinery and equipment, the engineering education system has included maintenance engineering as a part of its curriculum. This second edition of the book continues to focus on the basics of this expanding subject, with a broad discussion of management aspects as well, for the benefit of the engineering students. It explains the concept of a maintenance system, the evaluation of its maintenance functions, maintenance planning and scheduling, the importance of motivation in maintenance, the use of computers in maintenance and the economic aspects of maintenance. This book also discusses the manpower planning and energy conservation in maintenance management. Presented in a readable style, the book brings together the numerous aspects of maintenance functions emphasizing the importance of this discipline in the engineering education. In this edition a new chapter titled, Advances in Maintenance (Chapter 21), has been included to widen the coverage of the book. Besides the students of engineering, especially those in streams of mechanical engineering and its related disciplines such as mining, industrial and production, this book will be useful to the practising engineers as well.

Devising optimal strategy for maintaining industrial plant can be a difficult task of daunting complexity. This book aims to provide the plant engineer with a comprehensive and systematic approach, a framework of guidelines, for tackling this problem, i.e. for deciding maintenance objectives, formulating equipment life plans and plant maintenance schedules, designing the maintenance organisation and setting up appropriate systems of documentation and control. The author, Anthony Kelly, an experienced international consultant and lecturer on this subject, calls his approach BUSINESS-CENTRED MAINTENANCE (BCM) because it springs from, and is driven by, the identification of business objectives, which are then translated into maintenance objectives and which underpin the maintenance strategy formulation. For the first time maintenance management is analysed from the perspective of the whole company and thus makes sense not only technologically but also in economic and business terms.
