2011 (English)In: MPMM 2011: Maintenance Performance Measurement & Management: Conference Proceedings / [ed] Diego Galar; Aditya Parida; Håkan Schunnesson; Uday Kumar, Luleå: Luleå tekniska universitet, 2011, 3-34 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
This paper provides an overview of research and developments in the measurement of maintenance performance. It considers the problems of various measuring parameters and comments on the lack of structure in, and references for, the measurement of maintenance performance.The main focus is to determine how value can be created for organizations by measuring maintenance performance, looking at such maintenance strategies as condition based maintenance, reliability centered maintenance, e-maintenance etc. In other words, the objectives are to find frameworks or models that can be used to evaluate different maintenance strategies and determine the value of these frameworks for an organization.The paper asks the following research questions:- What approaches and techniques are used for Maintenance Performance Measurement (MPM) and which MPM techniques are optimal for evaluating maintenance strategies?- In general, how can MPM create value for organizations, and more specifically, which system of measurement is best for which maintenance strategy?The body of knowledge on maintenance performance is both quantitative and qualitative based. Quantitative approaches include economic and technical ratios, value-based and balanced scorecards, system audits, composite formulations, and statistical and partial maintenance productivity indices. Qualitative approaches include human factors, amongst others. Qualitative-based approaches are adopted because of the inherent limitations of effectively measuring a complex function such as maintenance through quantitative models. Maintenance decision makers often come to the best conclusion using heuristics, backed up by qualitative assessment, supported by quantitative measures. Both maintenance performance perspectives are included in this overview.
