Maintenance Management-Key in the Mining Production Strategy 870768

An effective maintenance program ensures the adequate availability of production equipment, in turn, this availability enables production to maximize utilization and successfully meet production targets.
An overall production strategy is necessary to draw all departments toward this common effort. Only then will production targets be met.
From the maintenance view this means that production must comply with PM and repair schedules. Purchasing must supply parts and materials on time. Mine engineering must not overwhelm maintenance with non-vital construction. Accounting must provide correct, timely cost information - etc.
This strategy - its content, effectiveness and enforcement is the responsibility of the mine manager…. his alone.
This paper describes a successful approach to maintenance within this strategy.
