The goal of this book is to help structure a Class A maintenance process based on planning, not reactive maintenance, which maximizes the efficiency of resources and provides significant savings. The 470 question checklist inside looks at every aspect of a maintenance program and asks in-depth questions about how each process is designed and executed. A point value is assigned to each answer and a cumulative score earned. That score will identify strengths and weaknesses in your maintenance programs, as well as determine what areas are eligible for certification. Ideally, once your maintenance program is certified Class A, your people will spend most of their time managing the planning parameters and doing continuous improvement projects, rather than resolving near-term problems. The unique aspect of this book is there are no other in-depth audit and/or certification programs for maintenance. This book is the first its kind.
