For too long, maintenance has been regarded as a "necessary evil" rather than a vital contributor to effective mining operations. Today's enlightened mining managers are realizing that a new approach is urgently needed. Quality maintenance is far too important to be left solely in the hands of maintenance. An integrated, well-understood, companywide strategy is essential to succeed in today's fiercely competitive, high-stakes marketplace.
Equipment Management: Key to Equipment Reliability and Productivity in Mining, Second Edition, explains how to make that strategy come alive.
Essential reading for mining professionals, this book shows how to create an environment and a culture that allow maintenance to succeed.
Author Paul D. Tomlingson draws on more than 35 years of direct, worldwide maintenance management consulting experience in the design, implementation, and evaluation of maintenance programs for heavy industry.
He explains how the equipment management strategy successfully focuses the efforts of all mining departments on the essential task of delivering consistently reliable production equipment to better guarantee a profitable operation.
Tomlingson offers valuable insights for developing effective preventive measures, scheduling more planned work, and improving productivity, resulting in higher quality work and less cost while reducing unnecessary downtime and avoiding the consequences of failure.
