  • Life restoration degree following minimal repair and its application for
           maintenance decision optimization
    • Authors: literatinetwork@emeraldinsight.com (Renyan Jiang)
      Abstract: Abstract

      Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to address the issues whether or not minimal repair is effective for a repairable item with a known life distribution and when the minimal repair process should be stopped. Design/methodology/approach – The life restoration degree (LRD) following minimal repair is defined and related to the shape parameter of the distribution so that a choice between minimal and perfect repairs can be made based on the shape parameter. Three replacement policies with minimal repair are considered and the corresponding decision rules are derived to determine when the minimal repair process should be stopped. Findings – Main findings are: first, the LRD of minimal repair is inversely or approximately inversely proportional to the shape parameter, second, the effectiveness of minimal repair increases as the cost ratio of perfect and minimal repairs increases and the shape parameter decreases, and third, the unconditional mean residual life equal the mean time between the first and second failures. Originality/value – The results can be easily used for maintenance strategy selection and maintenance decision optimization of repairable items.

  • Profitable working capital management in industrial maintenance companies
    • Authors: literatinetwork@emeraldinsight.com (Salla Marttonen; Sari Monto, Timo Kärri)
      Abstract: Abstract

      Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to analyze the impact of working capital management on profitability. This connection is further studied in industrial maintenance service companies. Design/methodology/approach – Analytical modeling has been used as the research method. The empirical analyses have been made on the basis of financial statements. Findings – The paper presents an analytical flexible asset management (FAM) model, which reveals a significant negative correlation between the cycle times of operational working capital and the return on investment. The importance of working capital management is emphasized in the industrial maintenance service sector, because of light fixed assets and good profitability. Research limitations/implications – There are some mathematical limitations in the applicability of the model introduced in this paper. These limitations should be addressed in further research. Practical implications – The FAM model can be utilized as a tool in decision making in firms, both in the short term and in the long term. On the basis of this paper, the decision makers can consider how important working capital management is in their industry. In the industrial maintenance service business, more attention should be paid to active management of working capital. Originality/value – The FAM model is a new decision-making tool. The paper also contributes to the unexplored perspective of industrial maintenance companies. The paper is valuable to service companies, as the research of working capital management has mostly focussed on manufacturing industries.

  • A framework for the engineering asset management system
    • Authors: literatinetwork@emeraldinsight.com (Khaled El-Akruti; Richard Dwight)
      Abstract: Abstract

      Purpose – The role of engineering asset management (AM) system as a controlling element within organizations is not well defined or understood. The purpose of this paper is to include the role of AM in the organizational strategy making, an issue that has not received sufficient attention. The focus of the paper is on how such role is maintained by the AM system activities, relationships and mechanisms over the asset-related activities of an organization. Design/methodology/approach – As an approach, a reference framework is required that allows research of this area. By combining a number of possible views of an organizational management system a comprehensive view can be established. A review of literature was used to establish a framework identifying the AM system as an integrated part of the organization's management system. Findings – A framework is established that focuses on planning and controlling asset-related activities by involving a set of activities, relationships between these activities and feedback mechanisms. A system functional model is proposed integrating the established framework as part of the control of the enterprise system. Research limitations/implications – The framework and system functional model are established on a theoretical basis and practical experience requiring applicability to be proven by further research. Practical implications – Asset managers in capital intensive organizations can utilize the framework and the system functional model in order to study their AM system, its relationships and to consider how it may be improved. Originality/value – Exploring a holistic and relatively new concept.

  • Measuring the status and alignment of maintenance and manufacturing
           strategies – the development of a new model and diagnostic tool
    • Authors: literatinetwork@emeraldinsight.com (Kenneth Robson; John MacIntyre, Robert Trimble)
      Abstract: Abstract

      Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to outline the development of a new conceptual model and the associated diagnostic tool which can measure the status of maintenance and manufacturing strategies and how well they are linked together. Design/methodology/approach – The new model was developed in two stages. First, a conceptual framework was produced and then a holistic diagram. From this theoretical model a diagnostic tool was generated. This tool was then verified and tested during an empirical research phase which produced four extensive and detailed case studies. A brief overview of one of the case studies is provided in this paper. Findings – It was found that the conceptual model provided an accurate representation of the strategic processes and links which should exist in a manufacturing plant. Moreover the diagnostic tool proved a valid and reliable instrument to measure and display this information. Research limitations/implications – The diagnostic tool provides a snapshot of the status of manufacturing and maintenance strategies which then can be used to benchmark improvements over time. When required the individual questions from the questionnaire can be reverse engineered to provide detailed information for senior managers to carry out corrective action. Practical implications – The diagnostic tool provides a snapshot of the status of manufacturing and maintenance strategies and furthermore by reverse engineering the individual questions from the questionnaire can provide detailed information for senior managers guiding them towards the key areas where corrective action is needed. Originality/value – This theoretical and empirical research closes a gap in the literature relating to the linkage between maintenance and manufacturing strategies. It does so by providing a unique and holistic representation of the strategic processes and links which should exist within a manufacturing plant. Moreover the diagnostic tool produced from the model is a convenient audit facility which enables companies to move towards functional coherence.

  • Detection of electrical faults in induction motors using vibration
           analysis
    • Authors: literatinetwork@emeraldinsight.com (Paulo Cezar Monteiro Lamim Filho; Jorge Nei Brito, Vinicius Augusto Diniz Silva, Robson Pederiva)
      Abstract: Abstract

      Purpose – The objective is the application of vibration analysis for the detection and diagnosis of low isolation between the stator coil wind and the voltage phase unbalance in induction motors with different numbers of poles. The purpose of this paper is to provide an approach for maintenance engineers for diagnosis electrical fault through the vibration analyses. Design/methodology/approach – A detailed review of previous work carried out by some researchers and maintenance engineers in the area of machine fault detection is performed. By vibration analysis, the spectra were collected, which used to analyze the failure. Vibration spectra could detect particular characteristic for each fault in an initial condition, so the machine health can be preserved. Findings – Results show the efficiency of the technique of vibration analysis and their relevance to detect and diagnose faults in different induction motors. In this way, it may be included in future predictive maintenance programs. Practical implications – The paper presents a laboratory investigation carried out through an experimental set-up for the study of fault, mainly related to the stator winding inter-turn short circuit and voltage phase unbalance. Originality/value – The main contribution of the paper has been the characterization of one more tool that makes the predictive maintenance process more efficient, effective and faster, increasing the reliability and availability of equipment.

  • Assessing the value dimensions of outsourced maintenance services
    • Authors: literatinetwork@emeraldinsight.com (Amir Toossi; Helen Louise Lockett, Jawwad Z. Raja, Veronica Martinez)
      Abstract: Abstract

      Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to investigate the diverse nature of tangible and intangible value dimensions that contribute to customers’ perception of value from outsourced maintenance services. Design/methodology/approach – A multiple case study approach has been adopted. Repertory grid, an in-depth structured interviewing technique, has been used in order to draw out the respondents’ hidden constructs in evaluating outsourced maintenance services. Data have been collected from four customer organizations of outsourced maintenance services, and a total of 33 interviews have been undertaken. Findings – The paper has identified a range of tangible and intangible value dimensions that are of importance in maintenance outsourcing decision making. The most important value dimensions for maintenance outsourcing were found to be specialist knowledge, accessibility (of the service provider), relational dynamic, range of products and services, delivery, pricing and locality. Although the paper has identified the most important value dimensions the paper also emphasizes the need to take into account the full range of value dimensions in order to understand the whole value pattern in an organization. Practical implications – The results will be of use for maintenance service providers to help them to improve value-adding capacity of maintenance services. The results can also be applied by customers to help them assess the value they receive from outsourced maintenance services. Originality/value – A different perspective on maintenance outsourcing value is provided. The value patterns in different organizations and the viewpoints of respondents in different organizational roles are described. The dynamic nature of these tangible or intangible values over time and their interrelationships has also been explored.
