The importance of optimizing maintenance management for efficient operations
Based on our optimization project experience both globally and in Russia, Deloitte has identified key problems in maintenance functions and has developed a model to optimize maintenance for the improvement of operational efficiency.
Key problems relate both to economic issues (inefficient use of financial resources) and issues of production (increased equipment downtime). The underlying reasons are, in nature, organizational (inefficient business processes) and methodological (absence of a differentiated approach for each piece or category of equipment).
Problems with maintenance management cannot always be blamed on a few managers or workers. Maintenance management is a complex process requiring an effective combination of technical and economic expertise. Deloitte therefore offers a comprehensive solution for improving maintenance management systems by looking at them as a whole, from adapting the organizational structure of a maintenance department to establishing approaches for differentiating and categorizing equipment and spare parts.
