Abstract [en]

The positive effects of maintenance on product quality, machine, ability to deliver the expected production on time and on production costs are well accepted in the scientific community. Never the less, a survey made in Swedish industry indicates that the positive contribution of maintenance is in general still not recognised or fully understood. Maintenance is still to a great extent seen as an unnecessary cost. To make it possible to recognise the impact of maintenance on the production process, a simple to use and reliable system for assessing its impact is required. This system should assist in distinguishing effects from actions taken in different working areas such as maintenance and logistics to enhance process performance. In this article a simple and transparent system for monitoring the performance of a production process in financial terms with respect to maintenance effect is presented. This system is based on a model describing how performance of the production can be related to vibration-based maintenance. The main result presented in this paper is a simple, transparent and user-friendly system for monitoring and assessing the performance of the production process with respect to maintenance. The main conclusion is that using this system makes the hard task of monitoring maintenance impact on the production process easier and faster and thereby also easier follow up the cost-effectiveness of investment in maintenance.
