Past and current maintenance practices in both the private and Government sectors would imply that maintenance is the actions associated with equipment repair after it is broken. The dictionary defines maintenance as follows: “the work of keeping something in proper condition; upkeep.” This would imply that maintenance should be actions taken to prevent a device or component from failing or to repair normal equipment degradation experienced with the operation of the device to keep it in proper working order. But we have taken some additional steps to strengthen our O&M practices, which makes us different from others.
We have incorporated Predictive Maintenance in our operations and management schedule, which is basically a Schedule maintenance activities when mechanical or operational conditions warrant and we Repair or replace damaged equipment before obvious problems occur.
This additional maintenance practices was actually possible due to our fully equipped Repairing and Calibration Centre, which is a state of art lab in India and which support us to enable Reliable Centered Maintenance also. We also utilize our Repairing and Calibration center under Reliable Centered Maintenance to enable the predictive / preventive maintenance techniques with root cause failure analysis to detect and pinpoint the precise problems, combined with advanced solution and repair techniques, including potential equipment redesign or modification to avoid or eliminate problems from occurring.
