Strategy of maintenance system in industrial company

Miroslav Žilka


This paper introduces the main conclusions of the doctoral thesis “Strategy of maintenance system in industrial company”, which focuses on improving of economic efficiency of the maintenance system by selecting the appropriate maintenance strategy for production machines. In the paper I characterise outputs of the survey, which focuses on characterization of maintenance management level, maintenance cost control and allocation level and range of modern maintenance management tools (Computerized Maintenance Management Systems = CMMS) utilization in industrial enterprises in Czech Republic. This article also deals with proposed methodology for selecting the appropriate maintenance strategy and with the brief characteristic of the model MAM (Maintenance Analytical Module), which was developed as a decision support tool for maintenance managers.
