Drawing upon the author's many years of shop floor and management experience in a variety of industries, this bestseller is designed to provide a basic yet thorough understanding of Maintenance and Reliability "Best Practices." This book recognizes that to implement best practices requires a workforce with a thorough understanding and knowledge of Maintenance and Reliability principles and the available technologies. But implementation is not as simple as just putting something new into effect. To truly implement a best practice requires learning, relearning, benchmarking, and realizing better ways of ensuring high reliability and availability of equipment and systems. This book explains and supports this ongoing process, and is an essential guide and reference for everyone who wants to ensure that their company's assets are operating as and when needed and at reasonable cost. It is ideal for designers who design the equipment; operators who operate; and maintainers who maintain, as well as warehouse and store personnel who procure and supply materials; engineers who improve the reliability; and human resource professionals who provide and arrange for a work force.
Students specializing in the M&R field will also benefit, and a special student workbook (ISBN 9780831134358) will be published for the first time.
