Although they are not difficult to design, maintenance plans require special attention to ensure maximum effectiveness. As they form a plan, maintenance supervisors tend to follow an established but flexible structure.
The Four Components of a Maintenance Plan
A typical plan has four key elements:
• Maintenance policy: The highest-level document that outlines the standards of company maintenance.
• Maintenance strategy: A second-tier file that defines seasonal maintenance procedures and is updated annually.
• Maintenance program: Documents that detail the necessary upkeep tasks for each individual system within an enterprise.
• Maintenance checklist: A list of required duties that is usually the result of work order analysis.
These components aid maintenance practitioners to achieve high standards of quality and upkeep. Though there is much more that goes into this detailed process, these four essentials play a large role in an effective maintenance plan.
