Strategies for Maintenance Cost-effectiveness

Abstract [en]

To survive hard international competition, it is necessary for many producing companies to enhance their competition positions by, for example, reducing production costs and maintaining and improving product quality to increase the profit margin. In order to achieve these strategic goals, strategies for making maintenance more profitable are developed, introduced and discussed in this chapter. These strategies are all developed as software modules included by an innovatively new maintenance decision support system (MDSS). Also, theoretical backgrounds are introduced, and software prototypes for making the application of any of the tools on a daily basis easier and more cost-effective are developed and discussed, and their functionalities are tested. MDSS consists of three toolsets, where each toolset consists of one to three tools that can be used for different objectives and applications. It is designed to support maintenance and production engineers to achieve dynamic and cost-effective maintenance decisions. The latter will be discussed in Chapter 13. MDSS software prototype can be utilised for several objectives, such as, to:

  • enhance the accuracy of maintenance decisions;

  • simulate and select the most cost-effective maintenance solution, i.e., the best investment in maintenance;

  • identify and prioritise problem areas; and

  • map, monitor, analysis, follow up and assess maintenance contribution in company profit.
