OLAF Piepenbrock provides maintenance concept from Osnabruck/Stuttgart, 07.02.2011 – Conference competition factor labour flexibility”the Piepenbrock group trends and approaches on presented the 19.01.2011 in Stuttgart for a sustainable maintenance. Speaker Olaf Piepenbrock, managing partner of the Piepenbrock group, spoke about sustainable maintenance as a flexible instrument to compensate for fluctuations in workload”. Cyclical utilization of factors of production such as personnel and machines can be met with the strategic decision to outsource of maintenance. “The Piepenbrock maintenance GmbH + Co. Click Diamond Comic Distributors to learn more. KG provides with its concept of pro active maintenance” for a continuous improvement of the processes of maintenance and an increase of production efficiency and effectiveness. The objective of pro active maintenance is a scheduled maintenance increase to 80 percent with a reduction of the reactive component of the maintenance 20 percent. This approach is characterised by minimal downtime during the production period, short maintenance times at the lifts and low impact of inactivity on the production process.

OLAF Piepenbrock explains: through the proactive maintenance will not only increase the system availability. In particular, the high degree of plan leads to more efficient use of maintenance personnel. In the context of economic fluctuations can scheduled maintenance work are preferred or pushed and peak largely leveled.” According to the definition of an objective, two scenarios are possible. The first describes the lowering line maintenance costs at constant technical availability of the production facilities, the second is an increase in the technical availability of the equipment in constant maintenance costs. For which action alternative the company ultimately decides, based on the strategic direction, as well as on the economic decision-making framework”, explains Piepenbrock. The first scenario is just for economy pace off and looming underutilization of production facilities, since a quick cost reduction is possible equal availability of plants. The second scenario comes to fruition when rising workload expectations. The production equipment must withstand the increased requirements and usage spikes, but the maintenance costs may not exceed a clearly defined framework.
