Maintenance Management for Supervisors

All maintenance management processes you implement in your plant come down to a change at the frontline (hourly and first line of management) at some point.

Nothing improves until your maintenance management improvement projects hit the frontline.

Maintenance Management for Supervisors is a vital part of your plant reliability.

For example, if you are focusing on building better bills of materials and spare parts management practices. 

All the work with better spare parts management doesn’t have an impact until we can use that information for better planning of work and then supervisors and hourly need to utilize the plans to execute jobs of higher quality and speed.

Another example may be the documentation of preventive maintenance (PM) routes.

If you work through all your equipment and document excellent PM’s, it has absolutely NO impact until someone do the PM’s, plan the corrective action and then do the corrective maintenance.  It all ends up on the frontline.

Because of the impact Supervisors have on your maintenance management processes, it is a really good idea they understand the whole concept of maintenance management.

It may be called ”Maintenance Management for Supervisors”.  It is important for maintenance supervisors to know how to set up a cost effective preventive maintenance process, how to plan effectively, how to do a root cause analysis, etc.
