Revising those components with a high impact on quality is a good starting point for quality maintenance activities. Providing the assessment is applied consistently, it can also be used to establish basic maintenance strategies such as condition based (P = 2+) or run to failure (C = 1, M = 1, A = 3). These can then be refined as asset care routines are introduced and improved.

Step 5 Condition appraisal

The objective here is to make use of the same critical assessment elements and components in order to assess the condition of equipment and to identify the refurbishment programme necessary to restore the equipment to maximum effectiveness.

Each heading will have been subdivided as necessary: for example, the electrical section may contain power supply, control panels, motors and lighting. Under each of the subdivisions of the equipment being studied, four

An example of the outcome of a condition appraisal study is shown in Figure

The key point of the condition appraisal is to put each square centimetre of the equipment under the microscope and assess whether its condition is 'as new' or 'as required'. Make sure also that you look inside the machine, so remove all panels. This is not just a broad, superficial look - on the contrary,

As such, the condition appraisal stage must include a deep clean of the

The objective of the refurbishment programme is to set up a repair and replacement plan, based on the condition appraisal, and indicating the resources needed. Getting the equipment back to an acceptable level is a prerequisite to

The plan will provide a detailed summary of actions to be co-ordinated by

The chart in Figure 5.19 gives details of action required on a specific item of equipment. It allocates responsibility for the various tasks and nominates individuals to carry out the work; it also embodies a simple visual indication

The refurbishment programme is concerned not just with clearly identifiable repair work, but also with the many small weaknesses identified by the condition appraisal, including cleaning and CAN DO approach, such as missing bolts, leaks, temporary repairs and over/under-lubrication, and it highlights
