December 2005
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
The aim of an effective Maintenance System is to maximize production equipment effectiveness in terms of economic efficiency and profitability. The maintenance system is effective if every effort is applied to eliminate in every case the cause of lost production due to equipment failure or to maximize equipment effectiveness. The most efficient way of achieving this goal is through proper maintenance scheduling and planning. Hand-on experience is crucial for performing successful maintenance. Yet, many new engineers lack the experience to successfully manage a program. This is why so many readers regard the Maintenance Planning and Scheduling Handbook as the chief authority for establishing effective maintenance planning and scheduling in the real world. The second edition will add new sections and further...

The New Manufacturing Challenge: Techniques for Continuous Improvement

From Library Journal
Maintaining world competitiveness has been the clarion call for many industries in the 1980s. For manufacturing companies, improving production efficiency has been the key. This work lays out specific suggestions for improving manufacturing techniques on the shop floor. The chapters, profusely illustrated, treat topics such as quick setup, job rotation, U-shaped production lines, and preventive maintenance. In each, the author uses his diverse experience as an efficiency expert for several leading consulting houses to good advantage. However, the volume lacks a strong philosophical framework and comes off rather like a dry list of helpful hints. Recommended only for production specialists. Gene R. Laczniak, Coll. of Business Administration, Marquette Univ., MilwaukeeCopyright 1987 Reed Business Information, Inc. ...
