  • Minimum of 3 years' experience within Industrial Manufacturing


Preferred Skills/Qualifications:

Job Responsibilities:

  • Development and refinement of the preventive/predictive maintenance program in a systematic, professional manner – coordinating all efforts with equipment custodians and maintenance management to ensure the program is properly approved and endorsed by both departments.
  • Coordination with planner/schedulers to ensure that correct PM/PdM services and inspections are scheduled and performed when due.
  • Administration, control and analysis of all data, records and equipment histories to continually review and refine PM/PdM frequencies.
  • Development of engineering solutions to repetitive equipment failures and other reliability problems; implementing ways of reducing the need for maintenance and ultimately eliminating the occurrence of failures.  Repetitive failures are identified and the PM/PdM program is refined by:
  • Review of predictive and other inspections
  • Analysis of equipment histories, maintenance cost reports, and failure reports
  • Review of service and inspections records
  • Analysis of work order data
  • Review developed PM/PdM procedures with operation superintendents and staff: securing “owner” approval prior to implementation.
  • Analyze planned idleness of operating equipment to develop and improve PM/PdM schedules.
  • Periodically compare PM/PdM frequencies to downtime reports and equipment histories to identify where frequencies require adjustment – up or down.  Refine the frequencies on an “economic” basis to avoid “over maintenance”.  This is a joint responsibility with the Planner.
  • Regularly review all equipment failures.  Determine what PM action might have been taken to prevent failure in order to protect against reoccurrence.  Recommend PM instructions accordingly.
  • Work with maintenance planners, as necessary, to develop job scopes for major, unique jobs.
  • Routinely contribute to the planning of realistic production capacity based upon analysis of preventive maintenance time needs, repair histories, inspection reports, etc.
  • Apply value analysis to make maintenance decisions, i.e., repair/replace and repair/redesign.
