    On Improvement Of Maintenance Function: A Reference Model And Improvement Methodology2015Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In order to produce products and services, companies are using various tangible assets such as production equipment and facilities. The goal of the maintenance function is to maintain these assets so they operate safely, efficiently and economically. This function includes technical, administrative and management activities, carried out in order to keep company’s assets in a state, or restore these to a state, in which they can perform the required functions. The activities should be planned and carried out in a way that allows for obtaining the required technical condition, availability, meets the safety requirements for humans and the environment, ensures quality of delivered products and services, and secures the anticipated service life of individual devices. Both effectiveness and efficiency of the maintenance function are very important to each company trying to operate with profit.

    As follows from the recent research, the performance of maintenance functions in most of the studied companies around the world is in general unsatisfactory, and the underlying reasons of the subnormal behavior are not sufficiently identified, understood and described.  

    The result of research presented in this thesis is an improvement support system based on an explanatory model of the maintenance function. This model shows the mechanisms interconnecting the motivations, intents and rationale behind the involved actors, entities and maintenance activities, and in this way gains understanding of how, and in what way the total performance of the maintenance function is affected, thereby supporting improvement decisions.

    As maintenance cost is a sharply increasing part of the operational costs, it is an evident target for operational and managerial improvement. This research area is strongly encouraged by industry, and is becoming a topic of increasing interest in the academia.

    On a Systematic Approach to Development of Maintenance Plans for Production Equipment2011In: Journal of Machine Engineering, ISSN 1895-7595, Vol. 11, no 1-2, p. 87-101Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Reliability is a collective term covering several abilities of the technical system: to deliver required functions, to uphold quality of products and services, to assure that the safety requirements associated with the system are properly fulfilled with regards both to the users and the environment and finally to uphold the durability of the technical system during its whole life cycle. All this has to be performed at acceptable risks, optimal cost, and correspond to operational needs of the business. Even though there is an advanced, well thought-out concept for this purpose - reliability centred maintenance (RCM) - that correctly applied might result in very good quality maintenance programs, it is not broadly used in the industry due to the vast efforts required for its implementation. An appropriate methodology supporting systematic functional break down of a studied systems, and guidelines how to couple functional failures to failure modes, integrated with RCM, would greatly speed up generating of effective maintenance programs. In this paper we present our research towards development of such a methodology, and show a pilot implementation to analysis of machine tool spindle. The methodology is based on Hubka's theory of design and AFD/TRIZ.
