DEFINING and executing excellence in management in PREDICTIVE maintenance programme Oscar Morales l. Civil Industrial Engineer expert in hydraulics and lubrication maintenance predictive/proactive strategies continuous improvement Oscar Morales l. I. LEARNING of the experience of a management INTEGRAL in LUBRICATION as in all the new techniques, which mean change for the Organization, a successful implementation will depend on everything you achieve learn from others that already traveled the road. When we are dealing with a management program in lubrication, in its execution does not require genius and neither depends on a single high-impact action. On the contrary, consists in a continuous actions building value, from a change in focus of the maintenance. It means a new strategic definition to your success? Not necessarily, but without a doubt, definitions, tactics and strategies that are established will help.
To ensure success for the easy route and save us the expensive learning curve, copy of those who have been in that and have executed it. Management programs in lubrication successful cases, teach us since its details. Both of the same programs, budgeted organizational changes and the really brought to the practice. Issues such as: what led or reason the decision to implement change? What was the strategy implemented?-does proactive maintenance? – do predictive maintenance? – another advanced technique of maintenance? What were the hidden obstacles in the process? How it was justified and approved the plan with superior handling? What were the benefits?-reduction in consumption of lubricants? – do lower repair costs? – reduction of production losses? – increase of time between failures? – does productivity increase? – do increase availability and service life of the equipment? -Do more savings with less do mistakes? – maintenance planned rather than reactive. How is the progress of program controlled? What were the actual costs of implementing it? Monitoring and analysis of oils and lubrication, were integrated with other advanced techniques of maintenance? Who and at what intensity were trained for the program? What was the reaction of those affected by the changes that caused the program? What was the role of top management, to initiate and support changes that required the program? How were costs of the program justified? What they would do differently if they had to start the program again? What are the plans for the continuous improvement of the program? The accumulation of experiences and responses to this series of questions, has found that the successful exhibit traits and common factors that must be taken into account.
