Maintenance Integrated Strategies & Technology.

Preventive maintenance is a schedule of planned maintenance actions aimed at the prevention of breakdowns and failures. The primary goal of preventive maintenance is to prevent the failure of equipment before it actually occurs. It is designed to preserve and enhance equipment reliability by replacing worn components before they actually fail. Preventive maintenance activities include equipment checks, partial or complete overhauls at specified periods, oil changes, lubrication and so on. In addition, workers can record equipment deterioration so they know to replace or repair worn parts before they cause system failure. Recent technological advances in tools for inspection and diagnosis have enabled even more accurate and effective equipment maintenance. The ideal preventive maintenance program would prevent all equipment failure before it occurs.

Maintenance Strategies
There are many different Maintenance Strategies available today for equipment maintenance. We recommend RCM2 on all critical systems and an Informal Maintenance Strategy (IMS) on non-critical systems..

We believe applying the appropriate strategy is critical for a long term implementation success. Many organizations get bogged down trying to manage complex processes & strategies on equipment that has zero impact or consequence to their operation..

Regulatory Driven PM's

The increase in Regulations is impacting the resources of most organizations today. These impacts are felt through the organizations impacting engineering, operations and maintenance. Air quality permits, DOT strokes on valves, PHSAMA Alarm Management, etc. With the proper infrastructure we can help reduce the impacts of regulatory compliance and free up personnel to maintain reliability, availability and efficiency.

prescribed preventive maintenance

There are multiple misconceptions about preventive maintenance programs. One such misconception is that PM's are too costly. This logic suggests that run to failure and down time would cost less than regularly scheduled downtime and maintenance.
This may be true for some components; however, one should compare not only the costs but the long-term benefits and savings associated with preventive maintenance. Many companies do routine prescribed PM’s to maintain a warranty not overall health of the equipment. MIST & Associates can help sort through what is needed versus nice to have.
