The top priorities differ but centered on three main issues for 2013:
1. Improved monitoring of inventory and management-from punitive (reactive) to proactive maintenance.
2. Reduction of downtime and overall reliability (reduction of overall cost).
3. Enhanced workplace connectivity and productivity through increasing use of mobile maintenance systems.
Reactive maintenance is very common and can be clearly described as a replacement or repair process after proper service and is often deployed with low-cost equipment, which can easily be replaced. Preventive servicing (PM) is typically performed if asset is more expensive and/or critical to the operations of a plant. Definitions of PM include routine changes, lubrication, replacement of parts, etc.
Maintenance programs should involve a combination of reactive, preventive, and predictive maintenance. Good practices recommend that a total of 50% of maintenance management will systematically incorporate preventative and predictive maintenance activities. Notwithstanding this, statistics indicate that the usual maintenance systems exist in the United States predominantly or mostly reactive. In a recent study, a typical facility 's average maintenance program breaks down as follows:
• Alert > 55 percent
• Preventive 31 percent
• Predictive 12% 12%
2% other • 2%
