In Manufacturing it is no longer to possible to avoid or delay Technology sophistication / automation and the complexity which accompanies it; and there is dire need for Cost Optimization , Productivity and Performance excellence. As the requirement of diverse Competencies and Expertise grow, so do the Cost Pressure to be able to afford big manpower and spares’ inventory for Maintenance. While breakdowns and machine deterioration are inevitable ; how well the equipment sustains and how well it performs for least incurrence becomes vital. How effectively the Maintenance Function delivers on its performance metrics depend on how well it had been designed and how well it is being managed.
Since Maintenance Function is an island of unique characteristics and managing requirements ; how Maintenance function performs , what is the difficulty level, and how Maintenance Management could be made more effective is often lesser understood and appreciated.
Keeping this in view, Indian Machine Tool Manufacturers' Association (IMTMA) is organising an online training on "Effectiveness in Maintenance Management".
