This is a hands-on reference guide for the maintenance or reliability engineer and plant manager. As the third volume in the “Life Cycle Engineering series, this book takes the guiding principles of Lean Manufacturing and Maintenance and applies these concepts to everyday planning and scheduling tasks allowing engineers to keep their equipment running smoothly, while decreasing downtime. The authors offer invaluable advice on the effective use of work orders and schedules and how they fit into the overall maintenance plan. There are not many books out there on planning and scheduling, that go beyond the theory and show the engineer, in a hands-on way, how to use planning and scheduling techniques to improve performance, cut costs, and extend the life of their plant machinery. * The only book that takes a direct look at streamlining planning and scheduling for a Lean Manufacturing Environment * This book shows the engineer how to create and stick to effective schedules * Gives examples and templates in the back of the book for use in day-to-day scheduling and calculations

This book highlights innovative solutions together with various techniques and methods that can help support the manufacturing sector to excel in economic, social, and environmental terms in networked business environments. The book also furthers understanding of sustainable manufacturing from the perspective of value creation in manufacturing networks, by capitalizing on the outcomes of the European ‘Sustainable Value Creation in Manufacturing Networks’ project. New dynamics and uncertainties in modern markets call for innovative solutions in the global manufacturing sector. While the manufacturing sector is traditionally driven by technology, it also requires other managerial and organizational solutions in terms of network governance, business models, sustainable solution development for products and services, performance management portals, etc., which can provide major competitive advantages for companies. At the same time, the manufacturing industry is subject to a change process, where business networks play a major role in value-creating processes. By far the biggest challenge in this context is making value creation a sustainable process where economic, social, and environmental demands are met. Managing product and service-related business operations in manufacturing networks thus brings different challenges that cannot purely be resolved using traditional methods, and techniques. This book is an outcome of a European project funded by the European Commission, and performed by a dedicated R&D consortium comprised of some leading Research institutions and Industrial partners.

BOOST PROFITS AND REDUCE COSTS BY EFFICIENTLY DELIVERING SUPERIOR MRO SERVICES Lean Maintenance Repair and Overhaul describes how MRO organizations can achieve significant improvement in financial performance by applying the Theory of Constraints (TOC) to guide the implementation of Lean manufacturing tools. This Lean/TOC approach facilitates a growth strategy by providing customer value, such as faster turnaround times, that the competition cannot match. Lean/TOC creates the capacity for this growth by eliminating waste. This practical guide shows how Lean/TOC also provides the improvement strategy for dealing with the variation that distinguishes MRO from high-volume, repetitive manufacturing. The methodology expands the improvement efforts beyond the manufacturing floor to make the organizational changes needed to facilitate growth and to empower the workforce to be enthusiastic participants in the improvement processes. You will learn how these concepts have been applied to MRO organizations in the commercial and defense sectors. COMPREHENSIVE COVERAGE INCLUDES: The MRO business opportunity The goal of Lean and how Lean for MRO is different Achieving sustained growth in the MRO business Managing the MRO process Enabling flow in an MRO environment The Lean MRO toolkit Managing the back-shops Creating a visual culture for the implementation of Lean/TOC

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. Complete guide to maintenance from a whole-company perspective Best-selling and world-renowned author Complementary to RCM (Moubray) & TPM (Wilmott)
