Mine Maintenance Management Reader is an indispensable handbook for maintenance managers and supervisors, and mine and plant managers in heavy industry. Virtually every aspect of this essential function is addressed, from organizing maintenance around a plant-level production strategy to how maintenance professionals can provide a road map for creating a more efficient organization.
These critical “big picture” issues are brought to life through engaging vignettes of maintenance men and women dealing with real-life, day-to-day problems and concerns. You’ll learn how Charlie, a plant manager, gets into trouble when he adopts a team approach to maintenance without doing his homework.
You’ll see how Vivian, a haulage truck driver, sets a new standard for the quality of preventive maintenance inspections. And you’ll read how Jerry, a general manager, establishes responsibilities for maintenance support that increase the production capacity and profitability of his mining operation. Author Paul D. Tomlingson draws on his 35 years of maintenance management consulting experience to craft these compelling, yet highly instructional stories.
Each reveals a powerful lesson, providing you with ideas and techniques to help solve maintenance problems you may be grappling with today.
