If equipment flaw or a defective part is spotted, the damaged machine directly stops, and operators halt production and rectify the identified problem. It is essential ...
Reliability is one of primary criteria of any maintenance activities. It’s an industry that requires high reliability levels throughout the operation of the aircraft. Preventive maintenance procedures are applied to maintain this reliability at an optimum level. Although higher level of Preventive Maintenance is not economical but if not performed than it may lead to failure of parts or equipment which lead to the aircraft grounded for long duration which may lead to huge economic loss to the company.
MAINTENANCE: Keep our station and boats running and looking great. Preventative maintenance, material condition, and house-keeping are the responsibilities of everyone.
There is no doubt with the advances in technology that, as a population, we are continuing to live longer; yet with the cost of medical care constantly on the raise, is it any wonder an industry would develop out of the concept of “preventative” maintenance? We are after all, all too aware of this concept; from large corporations who strive to maintain their expensive equipment in an attempt to secure the bottom line, to the local neighbor who would rather afford the costs of preventative maintenance over the expense of replacing a broken down vehicle. To that effect, automobile manufacturers have even begun to include major necessary “preventative maintenance” items in their “owner’s manuals.” For instance, I have to replace my timing belt and water pump every 75k miles in my Nissan. Interestingly enough, while we were focused on maintaining everything else around us, somehow we forgot to consider our most valuable complex asset, our bodies. How is it that the maintenance of a human health and its performance somehow got left over looked and left to fall through the cracks?
This report analyzes a need for an inclusive monthly preventive maintenance program at State University’s Alumni House (SUAH). The purpose of this report is to provide Mr. Rob Geis, Alumni House Manager, with the information necessary to begin an inclusive monthly preventive maintenance program and to help process and solve unanticipated problems, while reducing high maintenance costs. The purpose of the preventive maintenance program (PMP) is to reduce structural damages, reduce monthly utility costs, and reduce potential problems, while educating employees about potential hazards, providing employees with a sense of environmental security, and increasing the physical appearance of the SUAH.
Maintenance Plans: Preventive maintenance plans can be an excellent way to ensure that a roof receives professional attention at an economical
When we talk about aviation maintenance, we speak of repairs, alterations and the act of preserving an aircraft in its original airworthy condition. An airworthiness certificate is given to an aircraft after countless hours of design, research and testing. And in order to keep this certificate valid; an aircraft must be maintained in accordance with a certain specification. These specifications are brought to us by the Federal Aviation Administration. The Federal Aviation Regulation part that spells out these rules is found in part 43. These acts are performed to prevent harm to pilots, passengers, and even innocent bystander that may become involved in an incident due to improper maintenance. As maintenance managers, we must understand these implications that must be followed, so that we may ensure that our facility is performing to the standards set upon us by the FAA. The Federal Aviation Act of 1958 allowed for the regulation of air commerce in such manner as to best promote its development and safety. This brought about a rulemaking process to insure that all aspects of aviation could be regulated in a way as to provide maximum safety to all. This was the initial birth of 14 CFR 43, or Part 43 of the FAR's which is ironically titled Maintenance, Preventive Maintenance, Rebuilding, and Alteration (Federal Aviation Regulations [FAR], VII, 1997). This part has been primarily written for individuals or repair facilities that may be performing some sort of maintenance, preventive maintenance, rebuilding and or alterations. It refers to a number of qualified individuals that include holders of mechanic, repairman, air carrier, or even a pilot's certificate, that may perform an array of the procedures listed in this part. So when it comes down to it, we as maintenance managers must know and live by FAR part 43 in order for our employees to work and perform in a legal and safe manor. As the title implies, this part of the Federal Aviation Regulations prescribes rules of governing the maintenance, preventive maintenance, rebuilding, and alteration of any aircraft having a U.S. airworthiness certificate; any foreign-registered aircraft used to carry mail under pt.121, 127 or 135; and airframe, aircraft engines, propellers, appliances, and components of such aircraft. This is exclusive of aircraft holding an experim...
It is no secret that risk is prevalent in the healthcare industry. Healthcare organizations carry a large amount of risk just in their daily operations. Healthcare organizations not only have to worry about risks to their patients, but their staff, financial stability, or even a natural disaster. A healthc organization must have a risk management department with trained and qualified individuals that know how to handle various issues within the organization. At Janssen, they have a lot of risk when it comes to their product. They have compliance laws that must be meticulously followed to prevent severe punishments such as multi-million dollar lawsuits or imprisonment from criminal convictions. They must promote their products lawfully and keep them regulated by the FDA and keep medical decision making free from improper industry influence. To go along side with risk management, quality management also plays a vital role within a healthcare organization. Quality management oversees the quality of the services the organization provides as well as the products it may sell. With pharmaceuticals, the quality must be consistent and how Janssen maintains this quality must be overseen. Quality control is an important factor for them. Controlling all of the various elements within their production and also the satisfaction of their consumers plays a vital role for continual success.
Software maintenance is necessary in many cases when users find problems or bugs with an application, or when there are changes or additions that end users would like to see implemented. In most cases the reasons why software maintenance becomes necessary involve the need to correct errors, to correct design flaws, to allow an application to interface with other systems, to make enhancements, or to improve the design.
Thomas Pigoski in his "template for a software maintenance plan" defines software maintenance in the following way: "Software maintenance is the totality of activities required to provide cost-effective support to a software system. Activities are performed during the pre-delivery stage as well as the post-delivery stage. Pre-delivery activities include planning for post-delivery operations, supportability, and logistics determination. Post-delivery activities include software modification, training, and operating a help desk." Later on in the same material he describes some organizational requirements in the same context: "Maintenance is performed by the developer, a separate maintainer, or by a third-party organization. It is important that the organization responsible for maintenance be identified in writing with full responsibilities. The Maintenance Plan accomplishes this.
Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) is the important aspect in the chemical process industries in order to ensure smooth operation without interruption. Companies have made an effort to reduce the risk due to the major loss in chemical process industries which related to human life, assets, company reputation, etc. through process risk management. In the current practice, risk reduction strategies can be divided into four categories i) inherent ii) passive iii) active iv) procedural. These strategies are the part of a conventional safety layer of protection (LOPA) where multiple devices, systems or actions are provided to reduce the likelihood of an undesirable event. However, these approaches did not eliminate the hazards, the hazard remains in the system and combination of failures may lead to an accident .
Inspect your equipment for cracks, leaks, chips, etc. Ensure your equipment is safe for use and sanitized properly.
Aviation industry deals with more than thousands of people and also spending millions of funds in order to meet the requirements, satisfy the necessities of people and to produce state-of-the-art aircraft. With its objective it is significant to consider the hazards involved and bring out an output with the least extent and under control risks to prevent any loss in terms of life and even profit.
