Worldwide competition for consumer goods has placed enormous burdens on American manufacturing companies to improve their productivity or lose market share. Companies have responded in recent years with improvements in the way they manage suppliers, inventories, planning, manufacturing, and even the methods used for design and development of products. Although these changes have proved to be positive influences on company profitability, they fall short of addressing all the areas where improvement is needed. One area often overlooked for improvement potential is machine maintenance (i.e. maintenance performed on the equipment required for manufacturing products). This course introduces the student to some of the methods and tools available for improving machine maintenance. It also reviews the types of improvements that can be achieved if the same improvement principles are applied to machine maintenance that have been applied to other factory processes.

This course is recommended for engineers in all disciplines who interface with equipment maintenance functions. Although written with manufacturing companies specifically in mind, the principles taught herein can be applied equally well to the maintenance of equipment used to produce products or services in any industry. Previous experience with machine maintenance or facilities management is NOT required for successful completion of this course.
