Maintenance Management of Multiple Plants
Erling Hesla – Curtis Fowler – Jerry Huber
Abstract: This paper brings insights into practical considerations regarding maintenance. It addresses challenges faced when meeting maintenance, operations, and safety (MOS) requirements at the point of usage – on the factory floor – where the final application holds diverse requirements to be met with diverse and limited resources. The scenario covers an installation with a central administrative office (head office) and multiple outlying plants of varying size, staff, and budgets – each with its own limitations and its own demands. The paper states that the sole purpose of the electrical system is to support operations of the factory; that management is fully committed to proper MOS practices; that management requires a level of consistency between outlying plants; and that a level of “fairness” must be addressed.
