Ensure Productivity-Boosting Standards in Any Organization - With the First How-To Maintenance Planning Guide. Talk to any maintenance manager or plant manager, and they can tell you that planning and scheduling is critical to effective maintenance. Yet how many of them can name a ready-to-use, nuts-and-bolts guide that goes beyond theory, demonstrating how planning fits into maintenance, what principles make it work, and exactly how planning is done? The Maintenance Planning and Scheduling Handbook is the one-and-only resource that covers all this, and more. Defining "planning" as the preparatory work given to individual maintenance work orders before assigning them to specific craft persons, this never-before-available resource explains how work order planning leads to increased crew productivity-and greater overall effectiveness in just about any area of an organization's maintenance. The Maintenance Planning and Scheduling Handbook includes: The 6 Principles of planning; The 6 principles of scheduling; Extensive example work scenarios that illustrate each of these principles; Strategies for increasing your workforce without hiring-by implementing a new maintenance planning group or redirecting an existing one; A highly useful procedure for conducting an in-house productivity study; Appendixes that summarize key concepts, identify suppliers, show complete examplet work studies and planned work orders, and provide other valuable reference sources.

Plant engineers are responsible for a wide range of industrial activities, and may work in any industry. This means that breadth of knowledge required by such professionals is so wide that previous books addressing plant engineering have either been limited to only certain subjects or cursory in their treatment of topics. The Plant Engineering Handbook offers comprehensive coverage of an enormous range of subjects which are of vital interest to the plant engineer and anyone connected with industrial operations or maintenance. This handbook is packed with indispensable information, from defining just what a Plant Engineer actually does, through selection of a suitable site for a factory and provision of basic facilities (including boilers, electrical systems, water, HVAC systems, pumping systems and floors and finishes) to issues such as lubrication, corrosion, energy conservation, maintenance and materials handling as well as environmental considerations, insurance matters and financial concerns. One of the major features of this volume is its comprehensive treatment of the maintenance management function; in addition to chapters which outline the operation of the various plant equipment there is specialist advice on how to get the most out of that equipment and its operators. This will enable the reader to reap the rewards of more efficient operations, more effective employee contributions and in turn more profitable performance from the plant and the business to which it contributes. The Editor, Keith Mobley and the team of expert contributors, have practiced at the highest levels in leading corporations across the USA, Europe and the rest of the world. Produced in association with Plant Engineering magazine, this book will be a source of information for plant engineers in any industry worldwide. * A Flagship reference work for the Plant Engineering series * Provides comprehensive coverage on an enormous range of subjects vital to plant and industrial engineer * Includes an international perspective including dual units and regulations

The safe and reliable performance of many systems with which we interact daily has been achieved through the analysis and management of risk. From complex infrastructures to consumer durables, from engineering systems and technologies used in transportation, health, energy, chemical, oil, gas, aerospace, maritime, defence and other sectors, the management of risk during design, manufacture, operation and decommissioning is vital. Methods and models to support risk-informed decision-making are well established but are continually challenged by technology innovations, increasing interdependencies, and changes in societal expectations. Risk, Reliability and Safety contains papers describing innovations in theory and practice contributed to the scientific programme of the European Safety and Reliability conference (ESREL 2016), held at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, Scotland (25—29 September 2016). Authors include scientists, academics, practitioners, regulators and other key individuals with expertise and experience relevant to specific areas. Papers include domain specific applications as well as general modelling methods. Papers cover evaluation of contemporary solutions, exploration of future challenges, and exposition of concepts, methods and processes. Topics include human factors, occupational health and safety, dynamic and systems reliability modelling, maintenance optimisation, uncertainty analysis, resilience assessment, risk and crisis management.

Wie können Unternehmen mit unerwarteten Situationen umgehen? Um diese Frage zu beantworten, untersuchen die Autoren sogenannte High Reliability Organizations (HROs) - Organisationen, die absolut zuverlässig arbeiten müssen, wie z. B. Fluglotsen oder Feuerwehrmannschaften. An ihren spezifischen Handlungsabläufen kann sich jede Organisation orientieren, um unerwartete Ereignisse und Entwicklungen besser zu verstehen und zu bewältigen. Wie die Methoden der HROs sich in der Unternehmenspraxis umsetzen lassen, zeigt der lösungsorientierte Managementansatz.
